    I have added the necessary CSS to my NEWSCAST theme, so that at the bottom of the site, the words “scroll to top” appears, like the CORONA theme has it here:

    The only thing, that I don’t know how, is how to achieve this smooth scrolling effect to the top?

    Where can I add it and how?



    Found the solution here:

    If someone needs this for NEWSCAST, too, here is, what I’ve added:

    Open custom.js file, add in line 31

    k_smoothscroll(); //smooth scrolling

    and add after line 787 this code:

    function k_smoothscroll()


    jQuery('a[href*=#]').click(function() {

    var newHash=this.hash;

    if(newHash != '' && newHash != '#' )


    var target=jQuery(this.hash).offset().top,

    oldLocation=window.location.href.replace(window.location.hash, ''),




    // make sure it's the same location



    // animate to target and set the hash to the window.location after the animation

    jQuery('html:not(:animated),body:not(:animated)').animate({ scrollTop: target }, duration, easing, function() {

    // add new hash to the browser location



    // cancel default click action

    return false;





    That causes this nice smooth scrolling to the top effect.


    Thanks for posting your solution so others can read!
