WP LocalScroll

Description

This plugin will animate a regular anchor navigation with a smooth scrolling effect.

Each time a link is clicked, the whole screen will gradually scroll to the targeted element, instead of “jumping” as it’d normally do.

jQuery.ScrollTo is used for the animation.

Installation

  1. Upload the wp-localscroll folder and all contents to /wp-content/plugins
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

FAQ

How to create jump links in WordPress?

What you need:

  • An element with an id that acts as the anchor
  • A link that uses the format #anchor_id
  1. In the Visual Editor click on the HTML Editor
  2. Locate the end point of the jump in HTML view
  3. Add an id attribute to your end point
  4. Using the built-in WordPress link dialog box, add your link in the usual way at the origin point
  5. You should be good to go

Not all of us are coders! NEED HELP 🙂

Need detailed examples of steps 3 & 4! Maybe a screen shot or two??

1-In the Visual Editor click on the HTML Editor– Got it.

2-Locate the end point of the jump in HTML view– Got it, I think- ‘End point’ meaning where I want the page to scroll to?

3-Add an id attribute to your end point. – Umm what?????? I need details! Exact code character by character to be typed with [your anchor point inserted here]and such…. Yeah I’m a newbie and know no html.

4-Using the built-in WordPress link dialog box, add your link in the usual way at the origin point– Again, yes I know how to make links using the box, but what exactly do I put in as the link. The above code character by character or just my anchor point word?

5-You should be good to go – With more detailed help I sure hope so 🙂

Also, about how to adjust the speed of the scrolling. In a comment below, something mentioned about a php file. Ugh.. what is that and how do I access it?

I will change my rating if I can ever get this working 🙂

Thanks
