Back to Top button is a very useful feature for any website. It provides an easy solution to go back to the top of the page, in one click. Without having to scroll all the way back up. Especially on blog posts, with long articles. You can find some ready-made back to top buttons here. However, in this tutorial we will create our own, and customize it.

Oxygen builder doesn't have the option by default. So to add a back to top button in Oxygen builder, follow these easy steps:

Step One:

In the main template (the one that's active for all pages)

Add a new Code Block at the very bottom (under the Footer section). And in the HTML part of the code block, enter this code:

<button onclick="topFunction()" id="back-top" title="Go to top">⮝</button>

Step Two:

In the same Code Block, add this code to the JavaScript part:


window.onscroll = function() {scrollFunction()};

function scrollFunction() {
  if (document.body.scrollTop > 20 || document.documentElement.scrollTop > 20) {
    document.getElementById("back-top").style.display = "block";
  } else {
    document.getElementById("back-top").style.display = "none";

function topFunction() {
  document.body.scrollTop = 0;
  document.documentElement.scrollTop = 0;

Step Three:

In the main CSS style sheet, add the following code:

#back-top {
display: none;
position: fixed;
bottom: 2.5em;
right: 0.7em;
border: white;
background-color: #40C351;
color: white;
cursor: pointer;
font-size: 2em;
border-radius: 10px;
padding-bottom: 0;

Step Four (Bonus)

Additionally, you can style the CSS as you please. If you want to have the exact same button/effect that we have on PIT Designs website, use this CSS code:

#back-top {
display: none;
position: fixed;
bottom: 2.5em;
right: 0.7em;
border: white;
background-color: #40C351;
color: white;
cursor: pointer;
font-size: 2em;
border-radius: 10px;
padding-bottom: 0;
transition: 1s;
}#back-top:hover {
padding-bottom: 6em;
transition: 2s;
background: transparent;
color: transparent;

  1. Neat, but it isn't scrolling for me. I have a sticky header if that makes a difference. Also, what do you mean "main css style sheet"? Where would one find that?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Randall,
      That's any external CSS sheet (if you have a main/master CSS stylesheet)
      Or you can simplely paste the CSS code in the same Code Block (CSS box) you'll use to add the HTML and JavaScript (from Step One)

    1. You can use CSS scroll behavior

      html {
      scroll-behavior: smooth;

      Or Oxygen's builtin smooth scrolling (I haven't tried it but should be straight forward)
      Manage > Settings > Page Settings > Scripts

    1. Hi Azel,
      Did you assign the correct ID?
      Also, if you're using it on the template, remove it from other individual pages.
      It should work. What you see on this blog post is actually setup on a blog template.

  2. Good day Ninos,

    Thank you. Very practical. I have tried the various page options that you mentioned to get the scroll run smooth, but that did not work. Your other suggestion was enough:

    scroll-behavior: smooth;

    1. Hi, it must be this part (HTML Code , step one)

      you can change the symbol with "up" and try :

      I tried checking the site schweizer-rechtsanwalt.com but it doesn't seem you've enabled it?
      feel free to send the demo link will check.

      thanks for the coffee 🙂

  3. It's awesome, thanks for the detailed tutorial. I would like to ask is there any way to change the scroll depth for appear the button? i.e. 50% or 60% scroll depth then it appears.
