Plugin Manager » System - SmoothTop » Basic Options
Link Text: Text as you would have it appear in the link, something like "Scroll to Top". Can be left blank if you are using a CSS background image. Default is blank.
Link Title: New feature! Text as you would have it appear in the tool tip, again, something like "Scroll to Top". Can be left blank if you are using a CSS background image. Default is blank.
Button Reveal Position: Show the button after the page is scrolled to this pixel distance from the top. Setting this value to 0 will cause the button to always be visible. Setting this value to 1 will cause the button to become visible after the page is scrolled just 1 pixel. Default is 250.
Run in Admin: New feature! Do you want SmoothTop to appear in the administrator back end? This can be handy if you have long lists of articles or plugins. Default is No.
Horizontal Position: Horizontal position where the SmoothTop link will appear. Default is Right.
Horizontal Offset: Horizontal offset distance — has no effect if 'Center' Horizontal Position is chosen. Default units are 'px' and you don't need to enter it. You can also use '%', 'em' or any other valid CSS units. Default is 5.
Vertical Position: Vertical position where the SmoothTop link will appear. Default is Bottom.
Vertical Offset: Vertical offset distance. Default units are 'px' and you don't need to enter it. You can also use '%', 'em' or any other valid CSS units. Default is 5.
Transition Effect: Choose from applicable MooTools transition effects (easeInOut). Some transition effects are not included (Back and Elastic) because they could/would go beyond bounds of the scroll bar. Default is Expo.easeInOut.
Transition Duration: Duration for smooth scrolling, in milliseconds (1000 = 1 second). Default is 500.
Non-hover Transparency: New feature! This controls how transparent SmoothTop appears when the mouse pointer is not hovering over it. 0.1 is almost invisible while 1 is completely opaque. Default is 0.7.
Use Styles: Enable the styles below. Disable if you plan to style the link using your template stylesheet. Default is Yes.
Link Style: CSS Style for the link, must include the id #smoothtop at a minimum. To use other arrow images, use up-arrow-blue.gif, up-arrow-green.gif, up-arrow-grey.gif, up-arrow-orange.gif, up-arrow-purple.gif and up-arrow-red.gif. If Joomla is installed in a subdirectory, be sure to change the image path here or the image will not appear.
