    Is it possible to have an offset for desktop versions and another offset for mobile versions based on a displays height and/or width?

      I solved this issue by using the #masthead selector

    PAGE SCROLL TO ID is awesome. Works like a charm for what I need. One question though…

    The site is:

    I have it set up with my MENU links to go to different parts o f a page. I’m using the ‘wrapper code’ provided:

    [ps2id_wrap id=’some-id’]
    your content…

    BUT it does NOT work at all if you are NOT already on the SAME MENU tab. For example – if Im on the “Reasons To Invest” menu tab and want to go to “Our Technology” – which is under the “Opportunity To Grow” menu tab- you must first click on the “Opportunity To Grow” tab.

    Please let me know if this can be fixed and how.

    Thanks !

      You simply need to add the full address as your links URL/href value instead of just the hash with the id (see this FAQ).

      For example, change the “Crunching The Numbers” link URL from:



      Likewise, “6 Steps To Ownership” from:



      and so on…

    Thank you so much for Page scroll to id. Sridhar Katakam helped me to make it work with the anchor links that the Zotpress plugin creates. I use Zotpress for scientific writing purposes. It handles references.

    I wonder if it would be possible to add some code to Page scroll to id for to create a so called “back-to-where-I-where arrow” from the reference list that Zotpress creates. If you click on an in-text citation in my pages you will now be slowly scrolled to the bottom, but you might then find it difficult to go back to where you were.

    It would be perfect to have a back-to-where-I-where arrow that is presented below the figure of the actual reference in the reference list. Do you think that would be possible?

      There are 2 basic ways to do this:

      1)Enable “Append the clicked link’s hash value to browser’s URL/address bar” option in plugin settings. This way you can use the browser’s back button to go back to where you were before clicking the link.

      You can also create a link that goes back one browser history step:

      <a href="javascript:history.back()">Back</a>

      2)Create an additional target before each reference link. Then, create a “Go back” link below each reference paragraph that points to the target you created. For example:

      But why do then some robots benefit of sleep [ps2id id='back-to-3'/] [3]?

      3. …Neurophysiol Clin. 2004 Apr;34(2):59–70. [ps2id url='#back-to-3']Back[/ps2id]

        Thank you so much. I will contact the developer of Zotpress and ask if she wants to add support for this in the plugin.

    I have been using this plugin for some time without hassles. Recently changed my theme and now I have a problem using this from the WordPress menu.

    Your instructions above says “Click to edit each one of the links you’ve created and insert the ps2id value in “CSS Classes” field”

    Now I’m not too technical so help me with the ps2id and the text I have to add here. If my id is named #Travel, is this what I add to that CSS field?

    If I open my use my menu to go to one of these pages, it opens on that spot on the page but jumps right back to the top of the page again. I don’t think it sees my ps2id

    Some help will be appreciated

      Give your link the URL:

      You should be able to see the id of any widget in Appearance > Widgets, so you can use this id as the target.
