    Great!

    This is a feature that should be part of wp core. It is sooooo annoying to have to scroll backwards and forwards.

    When deactivating plugins scroll goes back to top of list, this is a scroll issue that needs to be added to this plugin.

    I understand from the Author that a similar function exists in mp6 plugin.

    I thought about this myself, will add this feature to the next version of the plugin.

    Hello again

    Yes, thank you for updated version.

    One small issue I would like to know if anyone else has this:

    When I updated the plugin the new feature didn't work on first attempt. Only on second activation/deactivation did the feature kick in.

    Small issue, but I thought it worth pointing out.

    Just in case:
    Chrome Version 24.0.1312.52 m
    Windows XP service pack 3

    Hello @hunnsdon,

    Thank you again for the feedback. Agreed, even a small issue has to be fixed. I'm trying to reproduce this, will report when I learn more about an issue.

    Hi Nadia

    I use the Jetpack plugin for the CSS editing. When you save the edit it jumps back to the top of the CSS box and doesn't return to the edited position.

    Hi @hunnsdon,

    I'll give Jetpack a look soon. Actually its CSS editor wasn't a goal of this plugin, but I'll try to make it work.

    Can't get so far why the plugin wasn't updated at first attempt in your case. But I just made some changes to plugin code, so you will have opportunity to check this again. Let's hope new version has fixed this magically :)

    Hi Nadia

    I notice there may be one or two areas where the main menu is still scrolling e.g. Appearance, Settings menus - etc. I am not a developer but is there some common code that makes all menus in WordPress scroll? Could this be made to work on all menus, I grant you that this would expand the usefulness of this plugin.

    Hi @hunnsdon,

    Menu is fixed on those admin pages only where it can be seen in full, that is, its height is not bigger than browser window height. So far I haven't devised better solution.

    If you want all the pages to show scrolling menu you just have to go to Settings -> Toolbar Publish Button and uncheck "Stick main menu". Publish button itself and "Remember scrollbar" option will continue working.

    Hi Nadia

    I understand what you are saying but there are some anomalies. The admin menu doesn't scroll on every on page where it larger than the browser screen. Sometimes it is static!

    Regards

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you for this information, I haven't noticed this happened on my websites, but I will test this issue more carefully now. Can you please tell me if you experience static menu (when it's actually supposed to be scrolling) in case you just switched to a new page (for example Appearance) or during some operations on this page?

    WordPress doesn't have any mechanism managing the scrolling of the main menu. It just never fixes it in place. The plugin add/remove a class for main menu box right after page was loaded. So the idea is pretty simple.

    I was inspired by MP6 plugin sticky menu solution, now I see that its code is a bit more sophisticated than mine :). I think I haven't taken into account that browser window can be resized. Can you please be so kind and install MP6 http://wordpress.org/plugins/mp6/ at leisure to check if its sticky menu works better for you?

    Thank you!

    Hi Nadia

    Dashboard = no scroll
    Posts = scroll
    Media = no scroll
    Links = no scroll
    Pages = no scroll
    Comments = no scroll
    Appearance = scroll
    Plugins = scroll
    Users = scroll
    Tools = n/a
    Settings = scroll

    Other menus I have in admin menu
    ---------------------------------
    WassUp = scroll
    BWS plugins = no scroll

    If the main admin menu is bigger than the browser window then it will obviously have to scroll.

    I tried mp6 and it always scrolls in Opera, works ok in Chrome. Your plugin sometimes scrolls, and sometimes doesn't scroll in Opera. Opera seems to be the problem.

    Hi Ray,

    I think there is some misunderstanding between us :) It is normal that plugin scrolls menu on some pages and does not do it on others. It depends on how many submenu items your Posts, Media, Appearance, Settings pages have. MP6 has bigger menu items height, so it may well be that its menu version just doesn't fit into your browser screen, hence it is always scrolling. Your version of Opera may have more menus and toolbars than Chrome.

    The problem actually exists just in case you sometimes see that Posts page (for example) is scrolling and sometimes (under the same conditions: browser, screen resolution, window size) is not.

    Of course, I may be wrong, if so please correct me.

    I am testing MP6 and Toolbar Publish Button (1.1.6) in Opera, Chrome, FF and even IE :) but both of them are working as expected. The only problem I've found for now is browser window resizing, so if one opened some admin page and then resized window, the plugin doesn't adapt (the fix will be included to 1.1.7 version). There are actually a few minor bugs that will be fixed as well. But nothing similar to your issue as-yet.

    Thanks for helping me to make TBL a better solution :)

    Aha! Yes I see.

    No my posts page does not scroll as you say. Well I can't get it to do that. So all looks good!

    Thanks again

    Hi Ray,

    I am testing 1.1.7 version, and it is more flexible as for sticky menu behavior, hope you'll like it. Also I will try this weekend to make it work with Jetpack CSS editor.

    Thank you! It's really matter to know which kind of problems users experience. Your feedback is really helpful.

    Hi Ray,

    I just updated the plugin. Jetpack CSS task was a bit tricky, but it works. Please let me know if you have some difficulties with it, because I actually don't use Jetpack for my clients and thus don't have an opportunity to test it under real conditions.

    Thanks for update;

    New problem:
    When the admin menu and selected option from that menu are too big for browser window I get a jittery admin menu. Jumping, etc.

    Hi Ray,

    Please try to work with it a couple of days if it's possible for you, and then please tell if you still experience inconvenience.

    For now menu is scrolling only within its own height. This means that when you are scrolling down menu will scroll until we reach its end, then you will see it sticky to the bottom. If you then start to scroll up, menu will follow your scrolling until we reach its top and then will stick to the top. A bit jittery effect is caused by browser default behavior during mouse wheel scrolling. If you try to drag the scroll thumb explicitly you will see more smooth scrolling of the menu as well as other part of the page.

    I have discussed and tested this with my clients, and they are happy with the solution we have right now. If you are still unhappy with it, I'll add another option that will make possible previous menu behavior.

    Thank you for your patience and feedback!

    Thanks Ray,

    I will add an option today or, the latest, tomorrow (sorry, a bit busy).

    Please tell me your browser, maybe I will be able to help it. And please more precisely, are you annoyed by too frequent scrolling of menu (and call it jitter) or exactly by its jitter effect during scrolling process?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Really its just the jitter.

    Browser is Opera latest version, and have noticed the same in Chrome.

    Yes it's the jitter effect during scrolling process.

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you VERY much! Actually it was a bug. Sorry for my misunderstanding you. It's just more clear in Opera and IE8 for some reason. Please try update, I hope now it works well.

    I decided not to add another option because if one dislikes long menu behavior, one always can turn "sticky menu" option off, thus menu will be scrolling as usual. If menu is not so long it just stays in place, thus the problem is absent. Too many similar options will be confusing and excessive in this simple case.

    Please let me know if you have any problem with new sticky menu behavior again.

    Hi Ray,

    I've found a few other bugs, and as a result we have new totally reconsidered approach to sticky menu scrolling mechanism. The idea of its behavior is still the same -- scrolling in frames of its height, but JS/CSS is dramatically different and I hope that better. I have tested it with my own project live the last few days intentionally in Opera. It works fine for me. Of course, we have tested it in other browsers too :)

    Hello Nadia

    I think I've found a bug.

    When using the collapse admin menu save buttons do not work.

    I disabled your plugin and then everything works ok.

    Ray, please, a bit more details. I just tried to save posts and custom post types in Opera and Chrome with collapsed menu. TPB version is 1.2.2. They work for me both top button and native blue button. Under which conditions are you experiencing this bug? Thanks.
