    Is it possible to scroll a page down without user interaction, to activate a scroll on page load or shortly after?

      Sure but you’ll need to add an extra js script in your page/theme template.

      For example, you can add the following script in your theme/child-theme footer.php right before the closing body tag (</body>):

      <script> (function($){ $(window).on("load",function(){ $.mPageScroll2id("scrollTo","#id"); }); })(jQuery); </script>

      and change the #id to the id you want to scroll to on page load.

      The code above is the basis and you can expand it with a delay, run on specific page(s) etc.

    I found your plugin to do just what I need—highlight menu items as I scroll through a long, one-page website. So thank you! I have a question about styling, though.

    My website is (Please disregard all content and colors. They are just placeholders as I figure out this styling issue.)

    I am able to change the text and/or background color of the links when I scroll by targeting .mPS2id-highlight.

    My nav is a ul, with each link as a li, which I think is pretty common. I would like to be able to style the li that contains each link when I scroll, rather than just the link itself.

    I have figured that if I give the li no padding and hidden overflow, and I display the a as block, the a fills the li container. That works great for changing the background color of that menu section.

    Is there a way to give that section a box shadow? I would love any insight you can offer. Thanks!

      You don’t really need the li element to be overflow: hidden. You can remove it and give the link the box-shadow you want and it’ll work. Is there a reason for having the hidden overflow on the list item?

        Nope! I was experimenting and came across the advice to do that. I’ll take it off and see if I can make it do what I want. Thanks so much for your reply!

    <script> (function($){ $(window).on("load",function(){ $(document).on("click",".mega-menu-link .mega-menu-item .mega-menu-item-type-custom #.mega-menu-item-1501 .mega-menu-item-object-custom ._mPS2id-h",function(){ $(".mega-menu-toggle.mega-menu-active").trigger("click"); }); }); })(jQuery); </script>

    I cannot get the mobile menu to hide when I click on contact.

    Kind regards,

    Hi, Malihu. I’m using your wonderful PS2ID plugin on an Elementor site but I’m having the issue that others have mentioned: the mobile menu won’t close on click. I’ve tried some of the scripts you’ve posted and they don’t seem to work. Can you help me with this? The link above is a prototype page for my one-page site, and I’ll be using the same mobile menu on additional portfolio pages.

    I appreciate any help you can offer. Let me know if you need more info.

      Yes, of course I can help 🙂

      Try the following script and let me know if it works:

      <script> (function($){ $(window).on("load",function(){ $(document).on("click",".elementor-nav-menu .menu-item ._mPS2id-h",function(){ $(".elementor-menu-toggle.elementor-active").trigger("click"); }); }); })(jQuery); </script>

        The script worked great. Thank you, Malihu!
