Smooth Scroll to Page Top without an Anchor

Print Page

This little jQuery snippet adds a smooth scroll-to-top effect on a page.  Unlike some other methods, this doesn’t need an anchor for the scroll effect to work on a page.

You can change the scroll speed and “scroll up to” position in this script.

$(document).ready(function(){

    $(".top").click(function(e){

        e.preventDefault();

        $("body,html").animate({
            scrollTop: 0 // Top position
        },800); // Scroll speed

    });

});
