For years, now, I've used Joe Workman's free Elevator stack to let my visitors scroll back to the top of the page. That just changed.
Tommy (aka DeFliGra) just published GetUp, a 'Got To Top' stack with a difference.
'What can a Go To Top button do,' you may ask, 'except scroll the page to the top?'
Well, GetUp has a choice of 15 icons, but can also insert a text, an image/logo or another stack instead of the icons. If you wanted to invest a little time, you can also build your own sprites for Elevator (I've created a few), but a text or another stack – no way.
So why would you want to add a stack as a go to top button? Take a look at the DeFliGra demo page and find out. When you scroll down the page, a 'Buy Now' button appears, which not only whisks you to the top of the page, but also whisks you away to the Cartloom page.
Adding a stack as a button would allow a call to action, a lightbox or, with a HoverBox stack, a rollover button.
Multiple instances of GetUp can be added to each page, each with its own ID. When you see that each GetUp stack can be freely positioned, this actually makes sense – each button can appear in a different position, depending on your breakpoint.
GetUp is (typical Tommy) animated and customisable via CSS. Thankfully, the animation can be deactivated.
The setting that had me scratching my head is 'GetUp', with the values 6 am; 8 am; 10 am; Teenager and Night Watch. It turns out that these are the settings for the amount that the page scrolls down, before GetUp appears. Teenager and Night Watch are obviously meant for very long pages …
GetUp – a tiny, inexpensive stack that will find widespread use.
