Nicescrollr

Description

Get Nicescroll and a ScrollTop button! I really like InuYaksa’s Nicescroll JS plugin. I’m a fan. And I thought there may be others like me who would enjoy using his famous
library with a simple interface. So I came up with this plugin. It is a wrapper for that popular library, which is developed and maintained by InuYaksa. You can visit his official Nicescroll homepage here. An overview of the default parameters can be found on Github at the bottom of the page. This plugin enables you to use the Nicescroll scrollbar on both the frontend and the backend. It is fully customizable, you can tweak and tune every single parameter Nicescroll has to offer! You can style it totally different for both views. It’s all up to you!

FAQ

Why doesn’t it work with my theme?

Most likely, this is because your theme (or another plugin?) already has the Nicescroll library on board. If that’s the case, I advise you to uninstall this plugin again to prevent compatibility issues. Of course, you can always ask your theme developer to implement a function to disable the built-in solution if you like to use this plugin and its Options.

The capability required for being able to customize settings is the following:
* nicescrollr_edit – The user can change settings regarding this plugin.

Can you help me?

Well, I provide some basic support on this plugin’s support page. I check that place once or twice a month, so you may have to be a bit patient.

<p>I absolutely love this plugin - but lately, I've had some issues that have forced me to go back to a previous version or deactivate altogether.</p> <p>First Issue: Version 0.8 crashes my site - this is easily corrected by uploading the files from the previously installed version via FTP to the plugin directory - good thing I was not using auto-update though! ...this has been an issue since its release with no fixes in well over a month!</p> <p>Second Issue: I have a site that I am trying to develop as a model for a personal venture and I have had to de-activate this plugin for my testers to be able to scroll on their Android and Tablet devices... this too has been an issue for a while and no fixes have been forthcoming! :(</p> <p>Third Issue: After the latest, greatest update - still having the scroll issue, only change now is that on a laptop my OnePress pages only scroll so the top of the page title reaches the bottom of the menu bar - then nada. Too many issues for this plugin to even remotely be considered for a live production site.</p> <p>Given the severity of these issues - I have to drop my rating at least a star for each. :'(</p>

Does what it suggests except when there are accordions on the page. When opening accordions the whole length of a site becomes longer and nicescrollr doesn't consider that. The site stops scrolling at the initial length, not the complete length.
