  3. [html] <a class="scrollup">Scroll</a>
  4. Include the following CSS in your stylesheet
  5. [css] .scrollup {
    background: url("images/back-to-top.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    position: fixed;
    cursor: pointer;
    bottom: 20px;
    display: none;
    height: 110px;
    width: 40px;
    right: 20px;
    text-indent: -9999px;
  6. Download and paste the “back-to-top.png” inside “images” folder (available in source code)
  7. Include the jQuery library in the header section (ignore if already included)
  8. [html] <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

    $(document).ready(function() {
    var scrollbtn = false;
    //detect scroll
    if(scrollbtn == false){
    var scrollTop = $(window).scrollTop();
    var docHeight = $(document).height();
    var winHeight = $(window).height();
    var scrollPercent = (scrollTop) / (docHeight – winHeight);
    var scrollPercentRounded = Math.round(scrollPercent*100);
    if (scrollPercentRounded > 50) {
    $(‘.scrollup’).css({‘bottom’: 20}).fadeIn();
    } else {

    scrollbtn = true;
    var docheight = $(window).height();
    ‘bottom’ : docheight
    }, 2000).fadeOut(function(){
    scrollbtn = false;
    $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 1200);
    return false;

  11. That’s it now test your website in any web browser

Note: It is better to create a separate footer (footer.php) and add all of your footer content inside footer.php along with scroll to top code, this avoids whiting scroll to top code HTML code in all the pages.

It would be great if you give a backlink as credit, if you use this code in your website.
