After a couple of years using the wp247 Body Classes plugin, I’ve added a new feature that I couldn’t find anywhere else. It started out just wanting to know whether or not the page content had been scrolled. It ended up being so much more.

The wp247 Body Classes plugin can now provide multiple Scroll classes that can be added to the body tag depending on how the parameters are set. It can be as simple as the visible content is at the top of the page (is-scroll-top) and the visible content is not at the top of the page (is-not-scroll-top) to as complex as the visible content is 13 pixels from the top of the page or the visible content is more than 5% of the viewport height from the top of the page.

Scroll Classes Settings

General Settings

The general scroll settings simple indicate that the content is/is-not scrolling or the content is/is-not at the top of the page. The general scroll classes are:

  • is-scroll-top
    • indicates the top of the document is at the top of the page
  • is-not-scroll-top
    • indicates the top of the document is not at the top of the page
  • is-scroll
    • indicates the content has scrolled (a synonym for is-not-scroll-top)
  • is-not-scroll
    • indicates the content has hot scrolled (a synonym for is-scroll-top)

Scroll By Pixel Settings

The Scroll by Pixel settings allow you to be as granular as you want with scroll measurement. You can measure as little as 1 pixel difference in scrolling.

Parameters
  • Scroll Increment (in pixels)
    • how many pixels between changing the class?
  • Scroll Start (in pixels)
    • how many pixels before we start indicating that we are no longer at the top of the document.
  • Scroll Limit (in pixels)
    • how many pixels before we stop measuring and indicate that the limit has been reached.

Scroll By Pixel is activated by selecting one or more of the following body classes to be set. All Scroll By Pixel classes end with a -px suffix.

  • is-scroll-mid-px
