Page scroll to id for WordPress tutorial

Basic tutorial for using “Page scroll to id” WordPress plugin on your WordPress site.

In order to use the plugin on your WordPress site (after installing and activating it), you need to do the following:

  1. Create id targets the page will scroll to or find existing id attributes in your theme to use with your links.
  2. Create links that point to those targets or enable the plugin on links that already exist in your site.

Creating id targets

Creating id targets in post visual editor

tinymce-custom-btn-ps2id-target In post visual editor, click the toolbar button “Insert Page scroll to id target” to create a target at the cursor position in the editor.

page-scroll-to-id-target-modal In “Page scroll to id target” modal insert the id value you want (e.g. some-id) and click “OK”. The target shortcode (e.g. [ps2id id='some-id' target=''/]) will appear in the editor. Update/save the post/page. You can now use this id value in your link(s) URL (e.g. #some-id).

Creating id targets in post editor via shortcodes

In post visual or text editor, enter [ps2id id='some-id'/] in the place you want to create the target and set the id attribute to the value you want. This will create a simple anchor-point target. If you want to wrap your content (or part of your content) in a target id (same as adding an id attribute to some content), use the [ps2id_wrap] shortcode:

[ps2id_wrap id='some-id']
your content...
[/ps2id_wrap]

Update/save the post/page so you can use this target value in your link(s) URL (e.g. #some-id).

Click here for more info on target shortcodes

Creating id targets in HTML

Wrap your content in a div with an id attribute (recommended for better link highlighting) or add simple anchor points (with id attributes) before each content section. Examples:

<div id="section-1">
  <p>Section 1 content...</p>
</div>

<div id="section-2">
  <p>Section 2 content...</p>
</div>

<div id="section-3">
  <p>Section 3 content...</p>
</div>
<a id="section-1"></a>
<p>Section 1 content...</p>

<a id="section-2"></a>
<p>Section 2 content...</p>

<a id="section-3"></a>
<p>Section 3 content...</p>

Creating id targets in WordPress widget areas

Create targets in your widget areas (Appearance → Widgets) via plugin’s “Page scroll to id target” widget.
Keep in mind that all WordPress widgets have existing id values that you can use with your links. You can find these id values within each active widget under “Page scroll to id target” label. The option to display these values is “Display widgets id attribute” which is enabled by default.

FAQ

Divi WordPress Theme

Creating links

page-scroll-to-id-target-menu The plugin is enabled by default on WordPress Menu links (Appearance → Menus), so you can start adding custom links and set their URL to the id/target you want to scroll to.

Edit your menu and add “Custom links” as these type of links allow us to enter a custom URL with the id we want. Your links URL should be in the form of #some-id, http://my-site.com/page/#some-id, /page/#some-id etc.

Please note that if you want your links to work from other/different pages, you’ll need to insert the full address with the target id in their URL (e.g. http://my-site.com/page/#some-id) or the relative-root URL (e.g. /page/#some-id).

tinymce-custom-btn-ps2id-link In post visual editor, click the toolbar button “Insert/edit Page scroll to id link” to create a link at the cursor position in the editor or from text you’ve already selected.

page-scroll-to-id-link-modal In “Page scroll to id link” modal insert the link’s URL and text. The URL should be in the form of #some-id, http://my-site.com/page/#some-id, /page/#some-id etc. When ready, click “OK” and the link will appear in the editor. You can edit the link via both “Insert/edit link” and “Insert/edit Page scroll to id link” buttons, as well as inline.

“Page scroll to id link” modal provides additional options like “Offset” and “Custom class(es)” that can be used to change link’s offset, its scroll duration/speed etc.

In post visual or text editor, enter [ps2id url='#some-id']link text[/ps2id] in the place you want to create the link and set the url attribute and link’s text to the values you want. The shortcode provides the same options as plugin’s “Insert/edit Page scroll to id link” toolbar button via attributes.

Any link with ps2id class or m_PageScroll2id rel attribute value will be handled by the plugin. For example:

<a href="#some-id" class="ps2id">link text</a>
<a href="#another-id" rel="m_PageScroll2id">link text</a>

You can instruct “Page scroll to id” to handle any link in your page(s) by using the “Selector(s)” field in plugin settings.
If you need to enable “Page scroll to id” on all links with URL containing a hash (#), insert the following value in “Selector(s)” field:
a[href*=#]:not([href=#])

Click here for more info on “Selector(s)”

FAQ

Links highlighting

Each time a target element is visible on the screen (i.e. is within the viewport), the plugin adds the mPS2id-highlight class to its associated link or links (i.e. the links that scroll to this target). You can use this class in your theme’s stylesheet or custom CSS to style the current/active link(s), e.g.
a.mPS2id-highlight{ background: #ff0; }

Common case scenario and example

Lets say you have a sticky menu containing links that scroll to various targets/sections within the page. Your links text color is black (which may be set by your theme or some other stylesheet):

.memu-item a{ 
    color: black; 
}

When scrolling through page sections (i.e. targets) you want the link of the visible/current target to become red. You can do this by adding the following CSS:

.memu-item a.mPS2id-highlight{ 
    color: red; 
}

Notes and more info

The default highlight classes for the links are: mPS2id-highlight, mPS2id-highlight-first and mPS2id-highlight-last (you can change these class-names in plugin’s settings if you want).

For more information about the highlight classes and options see “Classes & highlight options”, “Highlight selector(s)” and FAQ below.

FAQ

Offset scrolling for sticky menus

If your page has a top sticky/fixed-positioned menu, you’ll probably need to use plugin’s “Offset” option in order to prevent the menu from overlapping your content. This option allows us to shift (i.e. offset) scrolling, so in the case of a top sticky menu, we usually need to “stop” scrolling a few pixels before the target reaches the top of the page (to accommodate for the space the sticky menu occupies).

Go to Settings → Page scroll to id → Offset and insert an offset amount equal to your sticky menu height (in pixels). You can insert its height value as a number (e.g. 100) or you can insert your menu selector (e.g. #my-sticky-menu), so the plugin calculates its height automatically.

The plugin provides special selector expressions in order to define advanced offsets and work with responsive menus. For more info see “Offset” option.

Scrolling from/to different pages

The plugin has the option to scroll from/to different pages enabled by default. This means that when you click a link which points to a target id on another page, you’ll still get the smooth scrolling effect which will happen immediately after that page is fully loaded.

The only thing you’ll need is to make sure your links have the full address with the target id in their URL (e.g. http://my-site.com/page/#some-id).

    Hi Malihu,

    Thanks for your amazing plugin. It really helped me. But I have a problem with the offset feature. It doesn’t seem to be working. I tried to stop scrolling the page before my sticky menu by setting the offset to the height of my menu. but it didn’t work. Appreciate your help.

    Thanks.

      Hi,

      You have an error in your offset value:

      nav-bar-wrapper:height(73)

      It should be:

      .nav-bar-wrapper:height(73)

      i.e. you need a dot before the class name.

      Hope this helps

      The plugin does not work because your theme does not scroll the whole page. All root elements (i.e. html and body) in your theme are hidden without a scrollbar.

      The theme you’re using is currently scrolling an inner element (.content-wrap) that wraps your content. “Page scroll to id” does not work on overflowed inner elements like this.

      I’m not sure why the theme is designed this way but if you add the following CSS in your theme (e.g. as additional css), everything should work:

      html, body, .container, .content-wrap { overflow: auto; height: auto; }

      Let me know if it worked

    The buttons Insert Page scroll to id target and Insert/edit Page scroll to id link have disappeared from my WP visual editor. It’s hard to use the plugin without them. Where have those buttons gone?
    I’m running WP 4.9.6 with the Genesis Framework Parallax Pro theme. I also use the SiteOrigin editor (although I’m not using it for my current post. “Enable insert link/target buttons in post visual editor” is checked.
    Can you help, Malihu?

      It’s not possible for the “Page scroll to id” buttons to disappear by themselves without any changes to your installation. Did you install/update a plugin?

      Some page builder plugins do not allow third-party plugin buttons (like the ones by “Page scroll to id”) on their editor, so maybe this is the case(?)

      This said, you don’t need the buttons. Plugin’s shortcodes do exactly the same thing, so maybe you could use them directly in the editor.

      Let me know if the shortcodes work for you, otherwise we’ll find another way.

    Hi Malihu,

    Thanks for this Cool Plugin, but I have a question.
    Can this plugins works like this : https://theoffshorepartners.com/

    Each section as you scroll has its own url, I tried creating links manually on the homepage, but no luck

    <a href="#some-id" rel="nofollow">link text</a>
    <a href="#another-id" rel="nofollow">link text</a>

      Hello,

      The plugin cannot work like this (at least not without extra code and additional plugins).

      This said, I would avoid this functionality on my website. Changing browser’s URL on-the-fly while scrolling (without an actual action from the user) is not a good thing for like 99% of sites.

      This functionality messes with browser’s history without adding anything meaningful for the user (if I want to see the “previous” page, I just scroll up).
      It changes the way users use the back and forward buttons on their browser which is not a good thing (the user will hit the back button endlessly just to go to the actual previous page). It seriously traps browser’s history.

      This is just my suggestion 🙂

    Hello,
    Thank you for your plugin.
    I am using your plugin in my client’s site and it is working nice.

    However, I am curious about your video tutorial.
    In your browser, I can’t see the URL with the each section id in the address bar.

    From mine, whenever click one of menus, I can see the URL with the menu id like https://www.websiteurl.com/#about.

    Can I make it invisible like you did?

    Thank you in advance

      To see the hash (#) value in browser’s address bar, you need to enable the “Append the clicked link’s hash value to browser’s URL/address bar” option in plugin settings.

      Do you have this option enabled? If yes, just disable it.

      If you don’t have the option enabled and you still see the URL hash in the address bar, there might be some other plugin (or theme functionality) doing this. If you can post your page URL where you have this issue, I could check it and I’d probably be able to give you a solution.

          I checked your page and the plugin is currently not enabled on your menu links. This probably happens because your theme uses a custom non-standard menu function which prevents “Page scroll to id” from being enabled on the menu links automatically.

          But don’t worry, it’s very easy to manually enable it on your links.

          Go to “Page scroll to id” settings and change the “Selector(s)” option value to:

          a[href*=#]:not([href=#])

          Save changes and test your page.

          You can read more and find alternative solutions in the “Creating links in WordPress Menus” section above and FAQ.

    Hello,
    can I use this plugin to initiate auto scroll to specific element ID after page load?
    The page is for search purpose and I want to auto scroll because in mobile view, the first visible element is side bar.
    I would like to scroll below sidebar.
    If it is desktop view, nothing would happened as the element and sidebar are on top.
    But in mobile view they are not.

    I can’t add plugin shortcode as no text will appear in page. The page is as I mentioned for search purpose and it will not show any other element.
    But I can look at the code and find the ID of element I want.

    So any way to achieve auto scroll on load with this plugin regarding above?

      Yes you can but you’ll need to add javascript in your theme/template. Can you do this? If yes I can provide an exact script for the ID you want to scroll to.

      Hi,

      You can trigger a scroll event programmatically (i.e. without a click action by the user) via plugin’s scrollTo method. This is done with javascript like this:

      $.mPageScroll2id("scrollTo","#my-id");

      You can see more info about the method here:
      http://manos.malihu.gr/page-scroll-to-id/#methods-section

      Not sure if this is what you need. If you could give me an example of what you want to do I might be able to help.

    Hello!

    I’m having trouble getting Page Scroll to ID to play nicely with my Acid theme. From what I can see, Acid is no longer available for download or support, so I’m kind of at your mercy. Acid should have had this scroll-to feature built into it already, but I digress.

    I notice that when I click my menu links, it no longer puts a #nameoflink at the end of the URL, so I think it’s doing *something*….just not scrolling. Or highlighting.

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
    Info to look at site:

      Hello,

      Please check this FAQ:

      http://manos.malihu.gr/page-scroll-to-id-for-wordpress/2/#faq-1

      The plugin works only with browser’s native/default scrollbar. It works strictly by scrolling the document’s root element (html/body), not overflowed div(s).

      Your site/theme uses an overflowed div with a custom js scrollbar so “Page scroll to id” cannot do its thing.

      Edit: I’ve removed the user/pass so it’s not public

      FYI I can’t open your site because it’s blocked by antivirus.

      Are your links point to same-page sections or sections on different page(s)? When you click a link does the page reload? If yes, you need to set the correct URL in your links. Make sure your links URL matches exactly your site URL (www part, https etc.).

      Hi,

      This is an issue with your theme (if you temporarily deactivate “Page scroll to id” you’ll have the same problem).

      Your theme has a script that handles your menu links that point to same page sections. The script is:
      ...themes/engage/js/engage.main.js
      The code that does this is the function in line 445

      You can try this:

      Go to “Page scroll to id” settings and enable/check “Prevent other scripts from handling plugin’s links” option. Save changes and test your page.

      If the above doesn’t work (which is very probable by seeing your theme’s script code), then you’ll need to manually edit engage.main.js, find the line 445 and change the part:
      #main-menu li a
      to:
      #main-menu li a:not(._mPS2id-h)

      Hope this helps

      I could only see this as a different plugin (maybe complementary to “Page scroll to id”) but not as a “Page scroll to id” core feature, as its functionality is not related to what the plugin does.

    Hi Malihu,

    I’m using your plugin and it works great, thank you.

    I have one question/issue about a behaviour with the browser url though.

    Is it possible to hide the hash value all the time? Because when I click on a menu link that opens another page, the hash value is still appended eventhough ” Append the clicked link’s hash value (e.g. #id) to browser’s URL/address bar” isn’t checked.

    Any advice?

      Hello,

      There’s no option to hide the hash value when coming from a different page/URL. The appended hash value is necessary so the plugin script knows where to scroll the page (since there’s no user triggered action, like clicking a link).

      It’s usually good for the user experience to have the hash value appended in browser’s URL when changing pages (it allows the user to bookmark sections, use browser’s back button etc.)

      This said, the only way (at least for now) to hide the hash when coming from other pages is to manually edit plugin’s script and changing some code. If you want I could tell you which file and how to modify it and see if it helps.

          This will instruct the plugin to load the non-minified scripts that you can edit. You can add the above code before the “That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging.” comment in wp-config.php.

          2.Go to plugin directory (e.g. /wp-content/plugins/page-scroll-to-id), open the js folder and edit jquery.malihu.PageScroll2id-init.js file.

          Change line 43 from:

          var href=window.location.href.replace(/#.*$/,"#");

          to:

          var href=window.location.href.replace(/#.*$/,"");

          You can change the line above or comment-out the original and add a new one with the modified code below it.

          Remove (or comment-out like below) lines 81-85:

          /* if(window.history && window.history.replaceState){ window.history.replaceState("","",_hash); }else{ window.location.hash=_hash; } */

          That’s it. Save the file and test you page.

          You’re welcome 🙂

          Please note that on the next plugin version I’ll probably add an option for this feature. So if/when you upgrade, you’ll just need to remove the constant from the wp-config.php and enable the related (new) option in plugin settings.

    well it’s a great plugin but I am having an issue with the jumps, when click on any “#” or anchor link to jump on page. It cuts down the fist 1 and a half lines.

      I just checked your page (lookgadgets.com) and the plugin is not installed/activated.
      Not sure if this is the page/site you’re having trouble with or how can I help(?)

      SOLVED

      I heard the same issue. Try this plugin ‘iMeud’ It auto hide the header
      when scrolling. And what is amazing it re-appears again. So the user may be able to interact with sections properly.

      I think this is one of the best solution for this problem.

    the plugin works well on the same page, it places some links with texts, and when you click it works correctly.

    <a href="http://lafactoria.pe/agencia-de-comunicacion/#Factoria" rel="nofollow">Que cosa es La Factoría</a> <a href="http://lafactoria.pe/agencia-de-comunicacion/#Hacemos" rel="nofollow">Que hacemos en La Factoría</a> <a href="http://lafactoria.pe/agencia-de-comunicacion/#Programas" rel="nofollow">Programas de La Factoría</a>

    But when I put the links in the main menu, the page appears as a jump and is not even framed as it should appear
    http://lafactoria.pe/agencia-de-comunicacion/#Factoria

    The link by itself from the browser works, …

    Might you help me?

    Where do I insert the “rel” code if I’m using the visual composer “button” settings?
    I can only put the URL link.

      If you want to enable the plugin on any link, button etc. without adding the rel or class attributes, do the following:

      Go to “Page scroll to id” settings and change “Selector(s)” option value to:

      a[href*=#]:not([href=#])

      Click save changes.

      The plugin will now be enabled on any link in your page that has a hash (#) in its URL.

    Hi Malihu from Italy !

    I am using your plugin in my site and it is working wery well.

    However, when I navigate the first time on home page and select the last menu tab (contatti) the window does not scroll enough and I have to click two time to set ancor correctly. This appears too when I click on the same tab menu from another page. Is there a way around this?

    Thanks in advance!
    Alessandro.

    Hi Malihu from the UK!

    I am using your plugin in my site and it is working perfectly inside a page.

    However, when I navigate to my scroll id from another page (say the homepage) the window does not scroll enough. I think this is because I am using images with height set to 100vh (so the images load and re-size after the page is loaded). Is there a way around this?

    Thanks in advance!

      Hello Ibraheem,

      You could try using the delay for scrolling to target on page load option to how many milliseconds after the page is fully loaded, the scrolling will take place. For example insert 500 (i.e. half a second) in delay field, save changes and test your link(s).

      The issue you describe though sounds like you’re using a lazy-load image plugin (a script that loads images as you scroll down the page). Do you use such script/plugin?

    I would like to be able to scroll between front page sections of my site using a button. So for instance. Front page one was a button on it that says Read More which would scroll me to front page 2 section. It used to work using:

    <a href="#front-page-2" rel="nofollow">Learn More</a>

    But it doesn’t work anymore.

    <a href="#text-31" rel="nofollow">Learn More</a>
    (but I don’t know how to add the button class to this.)

    Any advice?

      Let me try that again! I would like to be able to scroll between front page sections of my site using a button. So for instance. Front page one was a button on it that says Read More which would scroll me to front page 2 section.

      It used to work using: <a class="button" href="#front-page-2">Learn More</a>

      So I changed it to: <a href="#text-31" class="ps2id">Learn More</a> but I don’t know how to get my button back.

      Also, there are being done through the widget section.

        Change your button to include both classes:

        <a href="#text-31" class="button ps2id">Learn More</a>

        Is this what you need?

    I have a question. Can you put more then 1 selector in the offset field> for exampe: #masthead and .mob-menu together. I am using to 2 menu’s together when it goes mobile. Is that possible?

      No, you cannot put 2 selectors in the “Offset” field.

      You can use plugin’s offset expressions in order to bypass the offset value in one of your menus (e.g. disable offset on mobile), but I’m not sure if this helps you.

        Thank you for your response. This helps. What I did was use the class and set a value of 120 in the offset. It works. thanks,

    Hi from France Malihu !

    Thank you for this plugin really practical ! Easy to use however but i have a problem.

    I made my page with Builder SiteOrigin.

    When I click on my tabs menu I have my page scrolling on the desired section but each time it goes up the site before descending on my desired section. (always up & down grrrr…)

    And when I’m in the lower section of the page and I want to go back a section for example, it reloads the page at the top to immediately descend on the section.
    Is SiteOrigin a problem or who did something wrong?

    In the idea I will exactly like the result of your video !! : ^)

    Thank you very much for your help !!!!

      Hello and thanks for your comments 🙂

      Your issue is very easy to fix.

      Your server is configured to always redirect to the www subdomain. So when you go to your-site.com/some-page/ it automatically redirects to www.your-site.com/some-page/.

      Your links URL do not have the www part. That’s why when you click a link the page reloads (seems to go up before scrolling), instead of just scrolling to the section.

      You just need to add the www part in your links. For example, change “Accueil” URL from:

      http://sebgarciaportfolio.com/#accueil

      to:

      http://www.sebgarciaportfolio.com/#accueil

      and it’ll work 😉

        I am a beginner, I would probably need your help again for other settings such as the tab highlighted! 😀

        Thank you very much !
