Support » Plugin: Scroll to Anchor » No scrolling animation to the top of the front page

  • Plugin is working fine for the custom Anchors I created and for the twentyseventeen built-in anchors I know of (#panel1, 2, 3, 4).
    It just doesn’t seem to be working for the homepage links.
    When I try to put a Home entry in my menu the link does work, but there is no scroll animation.

    I tried:
    1) Full website root url
    2) /#
    3) /
    4) /#top

    They all work but they all produce the same effect, i.e. no scroll animation.
    How can I solve this? Thanks!

    Not sure, I fully understand your issue:

    The plugin is called “Scroll to anchor“,
    your link doesn’t have an anchor,
    but you want a scroll animation anyway?

    In theory in HTML5 you can use a href=”#top” or a href=”#” to link to the top of the current page. More Details.
    So I kinda just assumed the same would work with the plugin.

    As a matter of fact the link does work and I get correctly brought on top of the current page. It’s just that there is no animation 🙁

    I “solved” manually adding an anchor in the header.php file and then overwriting it with the existing one through ftp.

    But still it’s strange, I was expecting the plugin to work with the default HTML5 “top” anchor.

    This simply isn’t what the plugin was made for.

    The purpose of this plugin is to set anchors in long text and provide a smooth scrolling animation if you click a link targeting to the anchor. The anchor should always be named and also included in the content. The documentation of the plugin covers this quite well.
    Dummy-anchors (http://example.com/#) are excluded for reasons, mainly because they get used for different purposes (like triggering a JavaScript function).

    I could add functionality for a #top-anchor in the future, although I’m currently not even sure, how to get the plugin compatible with the new Gutenberg editor.

    If you want a smooth transition to let the user return to the top of a page, I may recommend you look for one of the many plugins, that were made for this purpose.
