How to Add Scroll To Top Button in Blogger

Scroll to top or back to top buttons are most generally an image or an icon placed on the bottom of a webpage which has a long content which has to scroll down for a long time to read. This type of websites or webpages will include a scroll to top or back to top button which scrolls you to the top of the webpage automatically in a bit of a second. This but will be fixed at the bottom and will not interfere with the content on the page and only will view after the page is scrolled. 

In blogger, this button will be very useful for the readers if the posts are so long and after reading if they want to go to the top of your blog to go to the home page or to access the navigation bar of your website.

  1. font awesome is blocked the page loading too much, we can use SVG icon

  2. Thank you. This is excellent -- worked perfectly. Question -- I picked the hand pointer. When it appears it is dark blue so hard to see with my theme background. Where do I change this, or does it work off the theme?
