Very customizable and lightweight back to top ???? solution.
Fully compatible with Full Site Editing themes and with classic themes if block editor is enabled.
How this differs from other similar plugins?
This is a block, inside which you can insert any other block. This makes it utmost customizable. By default, a button block with inline image is inserted, but you can remove it and insert any other block you wish or customize default button or insert your own image. As button is a normal WordPress block, you can customize it like you would normally do, pick background color or foreground color from sidebar, choose border radius for edges, or anything else which is customizable in block editor.
Introduced go to bottom functionality – can be turned on in block sidebar (off by default). When user scrolls down button flips down ⬇ and leads to bottom of page, when scrolled up it flips up ⬆ and leads to top of page.
Plugin provides a block called “Back to top”, which serves the commonly known purpose to take user to top of the page. By default, button appears only when user scrolls some amount down.
The best way to use plugin is using full site editing theme. There you can add it to footer (alternatively to header) and block will be displayed on each page with this footer. If you add it to page, it will be displayed for this page only.
As mentioned above, adding this block to page will show it only on this page. To show it on many/all pages, you have to add it to footer (or header). You can do so by creating block on one of the pages and copy its code (copy option from block menu). Then, add
do_blocks($content); line in your footer (header) php template, where you replace $content with copied block content. Content must be between single quotes, as it is string, according to rules of PHP.
Features (block editor sidebar)
- In the block sidebar, it is possible to choose if the block will appear both on desktop and mobile variant of page and breakpoint between the two.
- Choose page scroll mode when clicked on button: smoothly or instantly.
- Opacity of the block.
- Duration of slow appearance (“fade in”).
- Position of the block from bottom right corner of the browser window, in css unit by choice.
You can use everything block editor provides.
Yes, but you should take care to preserve accessibility. Button is the best element, since button is accessible HTML element and it is clear that it gives some action.
Yes, but see above notes.
Introduced option “Go to bottom”
- Fix for incorrect alt attribute on inline image inside button on default template – thanks @thisbit (Elvis Krstulović) for testing and spotting.
