[HowTo] Back to Top*

Here is a neat script specially if you have a very long forum with lot's of content. This will put a back up image and link and make the page scroll back up to the top in a flash.

You can change the image or remove it and use text instead...

be sure that if you copy this off here that you remove the spaces I put in between the < > tags so they would show here.

You would put this in the master view of your theme in the foot section after the last div

< p id="back-top" style="float: right;bottom:0px; display: inline-block; position:absolute;right:0px;" >< a href="#top" title="Back to Top">< img src="http://vrijvlinder.com/forum/themes/VrijVlinder/design/images/back-up1.png" >< /a >< /p >
< script type="text/javascript" > 
$(document).ready(function() {

// hide #back-top first
    $("#back-top").hide();
    
    // fade in #back-top
    $(function () {
        $(window).scroll(function () {
            if ($(this).scrollTop() > 100) {
                $('#back-top').fadeIn();
            } else {
                $('#back-top').fadeOut();
            }
        });

        // scroll body to 0px on click
        $('#back-top a').click(function () {
            $('body,html').animate({
                scrollTop: 0
            }, 800);
            return false;
        });
    });

});
< /script >

  • When you say "in the master view of your theme in the foot section after the last div" — that means default.master.tpl, correct? I'm using the Embed-Friendly theme and have tried putting it after each of the divs at the end:

    <div id="Foot"> <div><a href="{vanillaurl}"><span>Powered by Vanilla</span></a></div> {asset name="Foot"} </div> </div> </body> </html>

    I keep getting a Bonk error. What am I doing wrong?

    If you are going to add script to a tpl you need to put the script between {literal} script here{/literal}

    I have not tested this on a tpl based theme, only on a php based theme.

    @Celeste You can use the Jump To Top plugin to add this without modifying your theme. /shameless plug

    Yea this will probably work better than adding script to the tpl , Thanks for making this @hgtonight !

    and I quote from the dictionary...

    Muse

    • (Myth & Legend / Classical Myth & Legend) Greek myth any of nine ten sister goddesses, each of whom was regarded as the protectress of a different art or science. Daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the nine ten are Calliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia, and Urania and @vrijvlinder

    Yea and they all end up dead lol specially Urania once they told her eating uranium laced chalk was unhealthy :)

    however putting me up there at the level of greek goddesses is very flattering nonetheless.

    @peregrine = Spartacus !
