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.

Divi WordPress Theme

Creating id targets

Creating id targets in post block editor (Gutenberg)

You can create your targets in more than one ways in the block editor, e.g. using the group block, the “Page scroll to id target” block, the shortcode block, block class attribute, HTML anchor field etc.

Create id targets using the group block

Click on the “Add block” icon and select “Group”. This will insert a general container block that can group other blocks and we can add the id on this group/general container block.

On the group block properties (right panel) you can add the id you want in the “HTML Anchor” field.

Create id targets using the “HTML Anchor” field

If you use headings in your content, you can use the “HTML Anchor” attribute of blocks to set a target id. Select your block, click “Advanced” in the right panel and insert the target id you want in the “HTML Anchor” field.

Create id targets using plugin’s “Page scroll to id target” block

The plugin has its own custom block for inserting targets: “Page scroll to id target”

Create id targets using “Additional CSS Class(es)” field

You can generate id targets for any block element, by setting its class name to: ps2id-id-yourid, changing the yourid part to the id value you want.

Click on a block element (e.g. a paragraph), click “Advanced” in the right panel and set the target id you want in the “Additional CSS Class” in the form of:
ps2id-id- plus the id you want.
For example, if you want to create the target id “last-section”, give the element the CSS class:

Create id targets using the shortcode block

You can use plugin’s shortcodes in the block editor. Click on the “Add block” icon and select “Shortcode”.
Add the [ps2id id='section-1'/] in the shortcode field to create a target with id section-1.

You can also use the [ps2id_wrap] shortcode accordingly.

Creating id targets in post visual editor (classic “old” 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...

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

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


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,, /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. or the relative-root URL (e.g. /page/#some-id).

You can use plugin’s shortcodes in the block editor. Add the shortcode: [ps2id url='#some-id']link text[/ps2id] inside any block element to create a link that points to the “some-id” target.

Keep in mind that since “Page scroll to id” version 1.6.3, the plugin is enabled by default on all links with a non-empty hash value (e.g. #some-id) in their URL. This means that you don’t have to use plugin’s shortcode to create links, as any link you create via the WordPress editor will work.

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,, /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:

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


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.


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.

        Posted on October 20, 2015 at 04:09 Permalink

        Worked in me case, simply by adding the rel=”m_PageScroll2id” line into the button code:

        <a href="#my_work" rel="nofollow">My Work</a>

        <a href="#my_work" rel="nofollow">My work</a>

        …and it works like a charm. May be button type dependent, though.

    Hello everybody,

    I have a problem. I install plugin and than I went in menus and I created all the menu links. I also inserted in every menu item m_PageScroll2id. And after that only contact (in menu) is working in scrolling way all the rest in menu does not work.

    As far as I know the next thing I have to do is to put some HTML in pages itself. But I do not know where to find that html code.

    I created in my theme child pages of the front page.

    I am stuck and I tried already to put some html in pages and nothing worked :(.


    • Arin
      Posted on October 1, 2015 at 22:50 Permalink

      Hey Nina,

      Do your menu items look something like this? Then you shouldn’t have to manually put any special HTML in the page as long as you’re using the right attribute to scroll to. Make sure there’s only one of each attribute on the page – if there are two elements with class="scrollToMe", and you told your link to scroll to “.scrollToMe”, then it won’t do anything.

      If you’re writing content in a page and they don’t have attributes attached to them (for example, a regular <p> tag instead of <p class="scrollToMe">, then your links won’t scroll. Just go into the page/post editor in HTML mode and manually put tags around your content. <div> tags are useful for this, especially if you have a lot of content that isn’t necessarily all text.

      Good luck!

    I was wondering if you could advise my why on a responsive menu on ipad/phone my links do not work?
    I am using Genesis theme and the links work fine on Computer Desktop in Firefox and Chrome scrolling smoothly but Safari does not scroll smoothly – simply jumps to the link – I assume as Ipad uses Safari – it is Safari that is the issue here??
    Thank you

    Note – Under ABOUT US are the page scroll links

        Posted on September 24, 2015 at 02:18 Permalink

        Replying to my own query here – I have narrowed it down to this – IF Safari Browser is less than 600 px – it JUST JUMPS to the links – Wider and it’s fine???
        Any suggestions on what the issue might be?

    Hi, I am using the target short code in the text editor, and it scrolls automatically just fine, but when I view my site a grey box is appearing where the short code was entered. Right now, my site is hosted locally, so I can’t show it to you. But if it helps I’m using the Shopkeeper WordPress template, which uses Visual Composer. I am entering the short code into a Text Block page element. Lastly, I have little to know experience with coding and figuring out how everything works as I go, so please go easy on me with jargon if you can. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    • malihu
      Posted on September 17, 2015 at 00:31 Permalink


      Although not familiar with Shopkeeper, the problem is probably that the theme’s text block has a default style (by your description it sounds like it has a gray background color and some padding).

      I’m not sure if you can change the CSS of the text block (via some custom CSS), or if you should (as it’s probably used elsewhere). Maybe there’s another way to enter the shortcode(?)

    • Kyle
      Posted on September 17, 2015 at 01:33 Permalink

      I was able to figure out a solution. Instead of putting the short code in a Text Block I put the section id in the Row ID field under Row Settings. When I did that it didn’t have the grey box. Yay!

    Thanks for the great plug-in. I’m calling pages to the homepage and each page is a new section that the page scroll id can scroll to with the Nav. That works fine but how do I block the page URLs of the pages being called as I don’t want Google sending people there or visitors finding there way there.

    Great plugin!! But I have a problem ๐Ÿ™ I use a Prophoto theme and the Menu options of wordpress is not available. I create a menu directly from Prophoto.

    I create a id secctions in my home page, and I linked every menu button like that:

    What I have to do that the plugin works with the effect?


    • malihu
      Posted on September 11, 2015 at 13:52 Permalink

      If you cannot set the m_PageScroll2id rel attribute in your menu links, you have to change the default plugin selector to match your navigation menu links (see “Activating plugin on links without rel attribute” section for info).

      In your case, the menu links selector is:
      #primary-nav li a

      So go in plugin settings and add the selector in “Selector(s)” field (while keeping the default one in case you need it):
      a[rel='m_PageScroll2id'], #primary-nav li a

          The current scroll speed value is set to 1300 and the easing to “easeOutBack”, which are exactly what I get when the page is scrolling. Aren’t those the values in plugin settings?

            Posted on September 17, 2015 at 10:27 Permalink

            I change indifferently the speed and the animation and always it works equally. I want a rapid animation and a linear effect as that of this

            Doesn’t work the offset scroll position, I put pixels or the selector #primary-nav. Why?

            Sorry for all questions

        • malihu
          Posted on September 17, 2015 at 18:30 Permalink

          If you want linear easing select “linear” in “Scroll animation easing” field. You may also want to disable (un-check) “Auto-adjust animation speed”.

          The offset (75 pixels) seems to work.

      Posted on August 16, 2015 at 23:18 Permalink

      I fixed the issue, something I never noticed before, built the theme from scratch with Bootstrap 3. Never noticed the difference between get_gooter() to load the footer template and wp_footer () within get_footer() to load js in the footer. I haphazardly didn’t have the wp_footer, not noticing the difference and it’s importance.

      After being a developer for a while, it’s often simple oversights like that, that result in a big problem. WordPress under the hood isn’t that complex.

      Hope that helps someone!!

    1. On tablet/mobile offset not working properly

    2. In mobile/tablet there is mobile menu whit all links to page sections. But on homepage load in menu is selected last link (probably because first page section is not visible). Also same situation is on portfolio pages.

          Ah ok, I wasn’t sure this was the URL you needed help with.

          I checked your site and the plugin cannot work with your mobile menu. This is because the mobile menu is a select element and Page scroll to id works with links (anchor elements).

          That’s why animation, offset etc. don’t work (the plugin doesn’t handle the mobile menu at all).

          The only way to make the mobile menu use the plugin, would be via a custom script which would trigger plugin’s scrollTo method each time a select option is changed.

Is there any other way I can make menu items such as #contact work?

    • malihu
      Posted on August 1, 2015 at 18:27 Permalink

      The theme seems to create its own data attributes on the target sections, for example:
      The top links point to this data attribute.

      In order for the plugin to work, you’ll have to somehow change the links URL (href attribute) to point to the id attribute instead.

      For example, you’ll have to change the “GetRewarded” link from:
      which is the target element’s id.

      You don’t have any target sections in your content or template.
      Your links point to #page-id-10 and #page-id-29 but your page does not have any sections with such id attributes, so there’s nowhere to scroll to…

      For more info see Creating the target sections

    Hi I’m the PlugIn works well on the same site, but it doesn’t work to jump to an other site with one click it needs to click twice! the first click it goes just to the page!

    I’m was testing with a custom link as a menu and also as a sub-menu with the same result.

    trying under WP 4.22

      I think you might need to enable ‘Scroll to location hash’ in plugin settings.

      Your links are not handled by the plugin… I can’t find the plugin scripts in your code. Maybe you deactivate it?

    Im trying to create a link to another page, but all I get is a scroll to the top of my page. SImple scroll works fine. (i have enabled Scroll to location hash). (click on Minions link on home page under “our brands” and it should get you to about page – instead it just scrolls to the top of my home page).

    Please HELP!
    Thanks in advance

    Hi thanks for this plugin!
    Can you specify where in the HTML and CSS do you put the code for target sections & links highlighting?

    • Amandine

      + I tried it but I cannot “click” the links of my menu, but the highlightning works!
      Surely because there is no href in the a so no way to go, but there is nothing about it in the tutorial.

    I downloaded this plugin, but I’m not that experienced with wordpress.
    I followed the instructions but can’t get my page to jump to a position that I want it to.

    I created a link in menu (the second angebote) and I insert the code also into the page, to where I want it to jump to.

    I put the offset on 100px, but nothing happens.
    Surely I’m doing something wrong, but I don’t know what.

    Can you help me,

    First of all “thanks for the plugin”

    I do have two small problems I can’t figure out.

    I have made a single landing page with links in one page which works fine.
    However, as soon as I go one level deeper (for instance blog or shop), my links in the page don’t work anymore.
    Only way to navigate is to first click home again. Is there a way to deeplink?

    Second problem is that I can’t seem to make the offset work.
    Nothing visually happens on my part.

    Thanks in advance,

      For the first issue, you need to add the full URL in your links, for example:
      You’d also want to enable “Scroll to location hash” in plugin settings to enable animation to/from different pages.

      For the issue with the offset, I can’t really help unless I see your page and plugin settings.

        Thanks for your quick reply.

        Adding the full URL’s in links works to go and come back from Shop, in blog I can’t add an id section.

        The temp url is

          The plugin is not activated on your menu links.
          It seems that you have the following value in “Selector(s)” filed in plugin settings:
          a[rel='ps2id id=']
          which is not correct.

          It should probably be:
          or just the default one.

          Your links don’t have a rel attribute at all…
          Have you followed the Creating the menu links guide?

    Great looking plugin, if I could only get it to work.

    When I inspect element, i can find the id’s as all i see is

    Please advise…

      The code you posted got stripped (place the code inside code tags).

    Thanks you so much for this plugin. I have not tried it on my developing website (above). The question I have is, does this plugin work with Visual Composer by WPBakery Visual Composer ( This website is a one-page/Parallax website.

    Thank you for responding!

    thank for the plugin.

    I’ve used to create some page submenus. They work properly but there is a problem.
    If two or more links start with the same word, the menu doesn’t scroll the page as if the two lines overlap.
    For example.
    In one page dedicated to a list of Hotel, i’ve to create different blocks for different hotels and the list is “hotel 1”, “hotel 2” etc.
    In this case, starting with the same word, the scrolling menu doesn’t work.
    How can i make it work? I can’t change the names of the hotels. Thank you.

      What you describe should not happen (plugin’s demo and examples also use the same pattern and they work well). Can you send me link with your implementation or a test page?

      • Tommaso Gavioli
        Posted on May 11, 2015 at 12:31 Permalink


        this is an example page:

        The submenu ID is generated by the first word of the title and Custom Fields.
        As you can see two of them start with the same word and the menu doesn’t scroll both of them.
        Do you have a hint to solve it? May be it’s a little thing…
        Thank you

          Both links have exactly the same href:
          so they point to the same target.

          Clicking either link scrolls the page to the same target as expected (tested on Chrome and Firefox).

          • Tommaso Gavioli
            Posted on May 13, 2015 at 18:37 Permalink

            exactly. But that is the problem? how can i bypass it? The links are automatically created everytime i open a box with custom field. And they become part of the menu. If the name is the same, i cannot use the scroll, can i?

        • malihu
          Posted on May 13, 2015 at 20:45 Permalink

          The plugin will scroll the page to the id. That’s what it does.
          You could maybe use plugin’s shortcodes to create your links instead of custom fields(?)

          If both links are the same how would you use them with or without “page scroll to id”?

          • Tommaso Gavioli
            Posted on May 14, 2015 at 14:07 Permalink

            ok, i’ll figure it out.
            thank you.
