Support » Plugin: jQuery Smooth Scroll » Conflict with Bootstrap tabs

  • Resolved Eliot Akira


    I love how simple and useful this plugin is. But I noticed that my tabs stopped working – Bootstrap uses anchors to switch between tabs, and somehow this plugin (as well as Easy Smooth Scroll by itself) disables the tabs’ anchors.

    Any idea how I could get around this? One way is to filter this plugin out on the page that’s using tabs, but then the scroll to top wouldn’t show up either..

  • OK, I figured out a way to let the plugin not conflict with Bootstrap tabs.

    In the plugin folder, js/jss-script.min.js, I changed this part:


    to be:


    Then, for each tab, add the class “navtab” to prevent smooth scroll from blocking it. For example: <a href="#tab-2" data-toggle="tab" class="navtab">

    Another thing I noticed was that Bootstrap carousel also uses anchors, and this smooth scroll plugin blocks them. To prevent that, change the above part of jss-script.min.js to be:

    if(n.href&&n.className!='navtab'&&n.className!='right carousel-control'&&n.className!='left carousel-control'&&n.href.indexOf("#")!=-1

    There might be a better way to do this, but for now it’s a working fix.

    Thanks for the lead… I seem to have come up with a slightly simpler method that doesn’t require any additional changes to bootstrap tab set-up.

    Just get more specific with the .indexOf(“#”)!=-1 to a <div> with a specific ID at the top of the page. In my case it was .indexOf(“#header_full”)!=-1

    I also edited the display_link function in the main php file, but it seemed to work even without that edit.
