Bloggers and online content creators use posts to reach thier audience. And just like with everything visual today, the user experience (UX) is key. One way to improve the visual of your blog posts, is by including a scroll progress bar.

What's a scroll progress bar indicator?

The scroll progress bar indicator, is the horizontal line on top of the page. That moves according to your position within the post. (Showing how far down you've scroll) or how much of the article is left.

How to create Scroll Progress Bar Indicator in Oxygen Builder / WordPress / using CSS and JS

Total Time: 5 minutes

Add Code Block

First of all, open the single post template in Oxygen builder. Assuming you're adding this to the Blog posts only. However you can add it to any post type.

Add on top of the structure a Code Block.

Code Block Settings

Go to Advanced > Layout > Position : Fixed

Add Class & ID

add-class-and-ID

Add CSS Class to the Code Block: bar-line
Add CSS ID to the Code Black: bar-header

Add CSS Code

Now add this code to the CSS of the same Code Block:
.bar-line {
height: 8px;
background: #00A99D;
width: 0%;
z-index: 1;
}

Change the background color as desired.

Add JS Code

window.onscroll = function() {oxyScrollFunc()};
function oxyScrollFunc() {
var winScroll = document.body.scrollTop || document.documentElement.scrollTop;
var height = document.documentElement.scrollHeight - document.documentElement.clientHeight;
var scrolled = (winScroll / height) * 100;
document.getElementById("bar-header").style.width = scrolled + "%";
}


And there you have it. A nice scroll bar indicator for Oxygen Builder based posts. With simple CSS and JS.
