4 Examples of Scroll top with animation by jQuery plug-in: scrollpress

Scroll to top with animation

The scrollpress is a nice plug-in if you want to let users scroll top by pressing a button with smooth animation.

The page scrolls up smoothly while the button animates in a nice way. You may style the button with CSS and optionally use the font-awesome or other icons. The duration of animation can also be set by using plug-in options.
