Easy Peasy Scroll To Top Button

0



Hey! Wanna know how I got that spiffy new "Back to top" button you see at the bottom right of the screen? I MADEEEE ITTTTT! Yeah, me! Mrs.No-Techie-Techie made this bad boy!

Before you think I'm the Yoda of blogging code, (Actually, Aimee is my Yoda) I searched far and wide, and I just couldn't find easy instructions, or buttons that were cute, so I decided to make my own, and share it with you guys!

OK, this is what I did, and this is for BLOGGER only. I can't help you if you have any other sort of formatting.

To use my Back To Top Button- 

1. Create a widget.

  • In Blogger, go to Layout, and create a new HTML/JavaScript widget at the footer part of your blog. (This is where you're going to put all the coding) leave the box open.
2. Add the code!
  • This one below was found on My Blogger Tricks.  Copy all of it, and paste this code into the widget box. Now, this one has my graphic with the gold arrow and words. If you'd like to make your own, see the second set of instructions.  
3. SAVE SAVE SAVE! 

  • Save your widget box and go check out your spiffy new Back To Top button!

TA-DA! You DID it! 
IF you wanna brave designing your own button, look below. 

SECOND SET OF INSTRUCTIONS- For creating your own design- 

1. Create a widget.

  • In Blogger, go to Layout, and create a new HTML/JavaScript widget at the footer part of your blog. (This is where you're going to put all the coding) leave the box open.

2. Make your design-  
  • You can use a photo shop software or website. Make the graphic 100x100 (or whatever size you prefer) and design it any way you'd like! Save it to your computer. 
  • Then, you upload it to a hosting site, I personally use photobucket. Keep this open in a tab. 

3. Add the code!
  • This one below was found on My Blogger Tricks Paste this code into the widget box that you left open. 
  • After that, you'd add the URL to your graphic to the code, replacing the words IMAGE LINK  (Please be careful with this part to ONLY replace those words and no other letters, spaces or symbols)
4. SAVE SAVE SAVE! 
  • Save your widget box and go check out your spiffy new Back To Top button!
