Scroll to Top jQuery plugin
If you happen to have on your site some pages that are a bit long, and therefore will lead your users to scroll down quite a bit to read your content, they may not have the patience to scroll again to get back up to the top. That's where this little plugin, hand made by NOE interactive comes in handy. Just put it on your website, and it will help your users get back to the top of pages with a single click, and with a small smooth animation (how nice is that :) ).
In this article featured on NOE interactive, you'll learn how you can install the jQuery plugin on your website. There's a complete step by step guide as well as a demonstration. If you wish to download the plugin, it's also hosted on Github.
Thank You for Downloading
I'm glad that you found my work useful. If you did, it might help some other people too. So why not helping me spread the word with a tweet? You could also buy me a coffee to thank me for my code and explanations if you prefer ;).
I hope you'll enjoy your download. Regards. Jeremy.

The FancyBox is one of the plugin that I like the most. It's so easy to use and renders really nicely, especially with images. It's a Mac like zooming tool that you can customize quite well and really looks amazing. Source and © Janis SkarnelisRead more
Composer is an awesome and powerful tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them, and their respective dependencies for you. To make your own libraries or packages usable by composer users, you need to declare them towards composer. When the package is public, less steps are required. You could host your repository online on GitHub for example, then declare it towards the packagist.org index for example. When the repository is private, it's a bit trickier, and I spent some time figuring it out, so here's a little feedback on my attempts.Read more
WordPress and jQuery are both very famous for their plugins. In the case of jQuery, plugins allow developers to extend the library's capacities in order to create beautiful effects. In WordPress, they allow anyone to benefit from the work of others, as they come under the form of a module that you can easily activate from within the administration interface, and start using right away.
Creating one of those modules is not that difficult, but if you are not familiar with their syntax, it could end up being a headache. There are many jQuery plugins that have been transferred into a WordPress one already, but what can you do when it is not the case? How do you do when you have found the perfect jQuery plugin for your latest site, but it is not yet available as a WordPress plugin?
In this tutorial, we'll see how you can easily create a WordPress plugin from a jQuery one. We'll review what a jQuery, or a WordPress plugin is actually made of, so we'll find the elements they both have in common. From there, we'll show how it leads us to perform some simple operations to allow us to benefit from our jQuery plugins in a WordPress template.
