This article will help you how to add smooth & light Jquery back to top button to your website design with fading effect. You can customize & use for any of your requirements.

HTML part – Place this code inside the web page body. Make sure the web page has content to scroll.

<a href="#" id="back-to-top" title="Back to top">↑</a>


#back-to-top {
    position: fixed;
    bottom: 40px;
    right: 40px;
    z-index: 9999;
    width: 32px;
    height: 32px;
    text-align: center;
    line-height: 30px;
    background: #f5f5f5;
    color: #444;
    cursor: pointer;
    border: 0;
    border-radius: 2px;
    text-decoration: none;
    transition: opacity 0.2s ease-out;
    opacity: 0;
#back-to-top:hover {
    background: #e9ebec;
} {
    opacity: 1;

Javascript – Place this javascript code after the jquery

if ($('#back-to-top').length) {
    var scrollTrigger = 100, // px
        backToTop = function () {
            var scrollTop = $(window).scrollTop();
            if (scrollTop > scrollTrigger) {
            } else {
    $(window).on('scroll', function () {
    $('#back-to-top').on('click', function (e) {
            scrollTop: 0
        }, 700);
