How to create Smooth scrolling links in your blog ?
WordPress themes supports special Divisions in themes like Footer, Header, I am using all these “div”s to implement this plug in. You can create your own links and places on your sites where the link navigation will stop.
So here is how.
Whenever you write a long post you can add special navigation links in same post. Same as this page.This page itself is using smooth scrolling links effect for navigation using implementation of below codes. you can go to Top to check the Navigation menu.
Add this code place where you want the navigation should stop
<a name="MYLOCATION">My Location</a>
And add this code where you want a link to specific area of your post.
<a href="#MYLOCATION" title="Go to MYLOCATION" target="_self">Go to My Location</a>
So now where ever some one clicked the Go to My Location link [CODE2], he will be scrolled to the place where you put the [CODE1]
- PROBLEM : Even after enabling footer links, there is nothing in Footer
- SOLUTION : Actually your theme doesn’t have
<?php wp_footer(); ?>in footer, so please edit the footer of your theme and insert that code. To edit the theme go to Design >> Theme Editor >> Select “Footer.php” from right hand list >> and paste
<?php wp_footer(); ?>just before the ‘< /body >‘ tag or Place it where you want to display your link.
