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.
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.
