You’ve probably seen a ton of blogs with a “Back to Top” button that shows up at the bottom as you start scrolling down the page. This gives the reader the option to quickly and easily return to the top of the page if needed.
Today I’ll show you how to set up a “Back to Top” button using the FREE WordPress plugin called WPFront Scroll Top
- Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, go to WPFront => Scroll Top and then click on Settings at the top of the page.
- You’ll notice there are quite a few settings – you may have to adjust some based on your preferences. In my scenario, I am using a button that I designed myself and uploaded to my site.
- Enabled: Make sure this is checked off.
- Scroll Offset: This number basically determines how far down the reader has to go before the button will appear.
- Button Style: If you’re using your own image, make sure you select “image”.
- Location: This lets you specify where you want the button.
- Custom URL: Make sure this is checked off and enter the URL of your image.
- After you’ve changed all your settings, make sure you click on “Save Changes”.
If you don’t have your own button, you can choose one of the “pre-designed” ones but I prefer to have my own. You can easily design your own by using PicMonkey or Canva. If you’d rather not using an image at all, you do have the option to simply use text.
