JS Back To Top

The JS Back To Top is a WordPress plugin that will allows you to add some JavaScript code on to your theme that will easily let your visitors return to the top of the page.

This plugin comes with 2 options you can either add a text link to the bottom of your content on your single post pages. Or you can create a button to sit on the corners of your website. On clicking onto either of these two elements your visitor will return to the top of the page.

This plugin uses pure JavaScript to perform this action so it does not need to load jQuery or other third party frameworks onto your theme, this means it will not affect the performance or loading times of your website.
