patch that adds "return to top" links to section headers (5.06 KB, patch)
2006-09-23 02:49 UTC, Jimmy Collins

Description baumanns 2006-06-27 21:05:00 UTC
Why doesn't exist something like a [top]-button? I really miss that. If a page
is 'long', you've the table of contents to jump to a point on the page, but
nothing to jump back... So you must scroll back to top.

It would be nice if you could implement a [top] link next to each section
editing button. Perfect would be, if you can choose via user preference if you
want that link or not. So it's optional to have the button.

In most browsers, the "home" on your keyboard will do this.
Comment 2 Marco 2006-07-04 18:38:37 UTC
well, see laptop users... some lack this key
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-07-04 23:45:22 UTC
I know laptop keyboards are cut down, but not having a Home key is ridiculous.

patch that adds "return to top" links to section headers

Attached you find a patch that enables "return to top" links.

It`s not optional by user preferences but it could be enabled/disabled by
Comment 5 baumanns 2006-10-04 08:39:00 UTC
Is it possible that the "return to top" appears only if the page has for example
a table of contents (means that the lemma isn't a stub)?
