Vertical Scroll Navigation Controls

When you finish adding your templates to vertical scroll widget, you will need to adjust the navigation controls.

Please consider that you actually have 3 navigation options, not only 2! Those 3 are: Mouse Scrolling, Navigation Menu, and Navigation Dots. If you don’t want to use navigation menu or navigation dots, thus, mouse scrolling will do the job.

But please keep in mind that mouse scrolling works even if you enable the 2 other navigation controls.

A. Navigation Menu:
– First, add list items by pressing on “+ Add Item” then, start naming your sections, for instance, Section 1 | Section 2 | Section 3, etc..

– When you finish, go and set menu position to the left or the right side of the page.

– Not only menu position but we have added offset controls, so you can manage menu top and left/right spacing.

B. Navigation Dots:

In navigation dots you have the option to add tooltips or you can keep it empty if you don’t want to add any.

– To add tooltips you have to separate each word with a comma “,”. For instance, Section 1, Section 2, Section 3, etc.. Then, you can adjust dots’ vertical and horizontal position.

– In addition, you can set dots horizontal and vertical positions.

  • Horizontal: Right and Left Options.
  • Vertical: Top, Middle, and Left.

Shape: Select the shape of the navigation circle or squares.

Entrance Animation: Select the entrance animation for navigation dots.

  • Scroll Speed: Set vertical scrolling speed in seconds. The default value is 0.7 seconds.
  • Scroll Offset: Select the offset that add to the first item.
  • Full Section Scroll: This option means that you will navigate between your sections by doing one scroll.

You can disable this option on the touch device from Enable Full Section Scroll on Touch Devices option.
  • Save to Browser History: Enabling this option will save the current section ID to the browser history.
  • Check Content Overflow: Enable this option to check if section height is larger than screen height and add a scroll bar for the content. For example, please check the second section on the demo page from here.
