Created by David Walsh, this “Back to Top” plugin is one of the cleanest options available.
This jQuery option adds a “Back to Top” link on the bottom right of the page, which fades into view.
This tutorial will help you build a scroll to top link, that appears when the user scrolls down, and disappears when users reach the top of the page using a combination of CSS and jQuery.
The styling of this option isn’t great, but the animation is pretty cool.
6. Scrolling Parallax: A jQuery Plugin
Scrolling Parallax is a new jQuery plugin that binds a parallax effect to the scrollbars and mouse wheel. This allows a background image or anything else to scroll at a different pace than the web page when a user scrolls around.
If your pages are long winded, it’s a good idea to provide viewers with an easy way to quickly/ automatically scroll back to the top of the page. That’s where this script comes in. It displays a stationary control at the lower right corner of the window that when clicked on gently scrolls the page back up to the top. And instead of always being visible on the user’s screen, the script lets you specify how far down the page the user is at (in pixels) before revealing the control.
This is another useful option, in this version you have both down and up arrows.
simplyScroll is a jQuery plugin that can animate (scroll) a set of elements either automatically or manually, horizontally or vertically. It can also accept dynamic image input via a Flickr feed (note not full API integration) or a local JSON source.
10. WP To Top
Yet another WordPress â€˜Back to Topâ€™ plugin solution
This is not a new effect but, this “infinite scrolling”effect is definitely interesting and something that you’ve never played around with.
