Top of the Page
With native MooTools AND jQuery modes, compatibility in all major browsers (including IOS and Android), Joomla cache friendly, and a ton of other features - this is ORIGINAL WORK and the most advanced top-button plugin available for Joomla!
"Return to Top" links do nothing for SEO and can even detract from it, and they can clutter your page. When you have a very long page, how do you decide where to put them? Do you need more than one? Are they visible when the user is already at the top of the page?
Top of the Page removes these concerns by creating a "Return to Top" link when the page has been scrolled by a certain (configurable) designated distance. When the page is scrolled back to the top (above the configured distance), the link disappears. If your page is short and users can't scroll down, the link will never be visible.
Your button can be text or images and as of version 2.0, can include an icon using your own icon-fonts - stylable in the plugin configuration, so you're not limited to any included images. The text is set using standard Joomla translation files, and can be overridden using the Joomla Language Manager (instructions included).
In MooTools mode, this plugin implements ScrollSpy by David Walsh ( http://davidwalsh.name ).
Joomla 2.5 users in jQuery mode MUST provide your own jQuery. I suggest jQuery Integrator here in the JED. It's very nice. An alternative is jQuery Easy, also here in the JED.
New in 2.0 :
More efficient and streamlined (yes, it's even faster)
JS & PHP rewritten and optimized for performance
JS minified (with debug versions)
The button can contain icon-fonts (super cool)
Squashed weird jQuery animation timing bug
No more top anchor (better for SEO)
No more smoothscroll library (faster without it)
An extra dollop of love.
What isn't new: All available transitions (for both jQuery and Mootools) are present, automatic z-index capabilities. Button text overrides. No pre-set images (meaning, no limitations). Switch between Mootools and jQuery without noticing a difference in the front-end.
Some other extensions in this category are actually forks of a very old version of this plugin which still contain most of the bugs I squashed years ago. The JED rules prevent them from forking this plugin a second time, so they're stuck in the past.
