You might be interested in my other plugins
Easy Smooth Scroll Links WordPress Plugin creates page anchors and add smooth scrolling effect (you can also choose other scrolling animation effects) to links linking to page anchors. You can set scroll speed and offset value. Works on IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari… You can also enable a simple yet elegent GoToTop button.
The HTML of an anchor is something like this :
By inserting an anchor to a certain part of the page, we are setting up an address for this section, it gets an address like this :

1. Setting Up Anchors
Set up an anchor for a section, and then link to this section on the same page with #anchorname
Note: You can also use shortcode to insert anchors, in case the button doesn’t show up in Visual Editor.
2. Anchor Scrolling Settings
You can set scroll speed and offset value. Choose from 30 Scrolling Animation Effects
Offset means: there could be a distance between the destination of scrolling and the anchor. (By default, the destination is exactly where the anchor is.)
3. Disabling Scrolling to Some Anchors
This plugin works by judging whether the hyperlink begins with #
If you link TEXT with #apple, then this plugin will take you to anchor with the name apple. This can sometimes cause problems, especially more and more complex onpage modules are using # within their structure, like Tab module, Accordion module.
Thus, I designed this function allowing you to disable scrolling to some anchors.
a). Disabling Scrolling to Anchors with the same prefix
By default, I have excluded anchors links beginning with #tab #quicktab #pane these 3 are the most used prefix for Tab plugins/modules. like the Woocommerece plugin.
b). Disabling Scrolling to Individual Anchors
Take my blog widget as an example,
I can exclude them with prefix #bl , which is recommended.
I can also exclude them one by one, but it’s not so smart, as you can type less words with method 1
4. Enabling GoToTop Button
Since this plugin can apply lots of scrolling effects to anchor links, I added a bonus: a simple yet elegent GoToTop button, you can now get rid of those heavy, buggy gototop button wordpress plugins. Cheers !
What’s more, you can set speed and animation effect for this GoToTop button, these won’t affect the above anchor link settings.
1. It doesn’t work !
It should work on all major browsers and all modern wordpress themes. If it doesn’t, check the footer.php file in your theme folder.
There should be
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
before the end of
If not, add this line yourself. :) The plugin relies on this line of code to work…
If it still doesn’t work, check if you’re using JS minify plugins like “WP Minify“, you should exclude inline scripts and
from combining or minification.
2. I can’t see Anchor Button in CKEditor?
CKEditor For WordPress has its own Anchor Button:
3. I want to know about about the animation effects.
