No ‘Back to Top’ Button

Elevator uses the wp_footer(); tag to hook into. If your theme doesn’t include this tag somewhere (it’s most commonly found in the footer.php template file, just before the closing tag), then Elevator can’t work it’s magic. Check your theme first if Elevator’s ‘Back to Top’ button isn’t appearing on the page after you’ve activated the plugin.

‘Back to Top’ Button Not Working

If your ‘Back to Top’ button is loading, but the Elevator seems to be broken and stuck in the Basement, check for JavaScript errors in your browser’s console. You can use Google Chrome’s Dev Tools for this. If you’re unfamiliar with checking for JavaScript errors in your browser, I suggest you check out Julie Pagano’s JavaScript Debugging for Beginners article.

If your site is generating a JavaScript error, it’s possible for it to conflict with Elevator and I suggest you resolve the JavaScript error before proceeding with any other troubleshooting.

Reviews

a whole new back top top experience

This plugin really looks great as it brings a new approach to the back to top feature. It gives a unique back to top user experience that your visitors will surely be delighted. However, this plugin doesn’t seems to be working pretty well on android phones. It works great on desktop but upon using an android phone, the sound ‘Ting’ seems to be missing.
