Adding a scroll to top button to your website can be a great way to allow your users to navigate, especially if you have long-scrolling pages. A scroll button should be subtle and it has become expected to see one on the lower right of the page. Some sites include the button in the footer while others use fixed positioning to place the button and show/hide the button based on where the user is on the page. This tutorial will cover how to display the scroll button using jQuery when the user scrolls down the page a little. We’ll use an icon font from Font Awesome but you could easily substitute a Bootstrap glyph or any other icon.
