  1. Hey!
    Thanks so much for this post! I’ve implemented the html code and I hope you can help me with a specific request…
    I’d like the floating image to show further down on the page, not immediately when people land on it.

    I have a sign up form on the top of the page and a long descriptive text underneath. I want people to see the floating ‘Sign up’ image (with a ‘back to top’ link in it) when they start reading the text to have the possibility to go straight back to the top to the sign up form.

    I hope I explained myself right… and it would be awesome if you could suggest how to do this

    Many thanks

    Sylvia

  2. I’m looking for different ways to add a scroll to top button for my site because my theme doesn’t have a built in button for this functionality. Luckily, I’ve stumbled upon this. Thanks for the quick tutorial. I might go with no. 1, though the image will be on a fixed position. Thank you so much Ammar!

  3. Go to Top Button definitely adds a greater functionality and user experience. So it’s one another quality factor. And most importantly it’s described in a suitable manner by Ammar.

  4. Thank you for this but my theme itself got that button. But few have asked me how to install into theme, now I’ll show this to people. :D
