"Back To Top" Button

On this blog {and my teacher blog} I have a "Back To Top" button in the lower right-hand corner. I love this button, because sometimes it's just nice to be lazy and take a shortcut back to the top. ;)

In this blog post you will learn how easy it is to add your own "Back To Top" button:

First, make sure you are logged into your blogger account. 
Then go to layout.

Then click on Add a Gadget.

Select the HTML/JavaScript gadget.

Next, copy and paste one of the following codes into the content box. 
{BTW: You don't need to put a title}. Then, click save.

Before viewing your blog, make sure you click on the "Save Arrangement" button.

Enjoy your new button!! I know your blog readers will!!!

You are a genius. Now if you can get the scroll up button on the TpT forums, that would be superior. Oh....Paul????

Miss Cosby said...

Love this. I seriously hope everyone does this because I get a little scroll-lazy. :) Loving the new blog.

Your blog is just what I need! There are so many tech things other people can do that I would love to learn how to do! However, it seems like you are giving advice to people who use Blogger; could you also advise those of us who use Wordpress?

Also, I would LOVE to learn how to make binder covers and spines; would you consider covering that in a future post?

Thanks for posting this...I've just added it to my blog & I love it!

Kate said...

I am so excited that you started this blog! You've posted a lot of great tips already! I tried adding the back to top arrow to my blog, but there was a white box around it... any idea how I can make the box go away?
