A Web page with multiple sections that are not completely visible can have links to make the browser jump to specific sections of the page.

However, once you click on a link to jump to a section you no longer see the links for other sections.

This jQuery plugin provides a solution that shows in a single scroll bar that is always totally visible, buttons to make the page jump to specific sections, always keeping visible buttons to jump to other sections.

Advanced jQuery Scroll Progress Tracker v1.2.2

Dynamic Scroll Progress Tracker plugin for jQuery

(c) 2016 David Whitworth (david@whitworth.de)

Released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)

Description

A very versatile jQuery plugin that creates either a horizontal or a vertical (or both) scroll progress indicator based on your content. It is highly customizable and has a built-in linking function, so it can be used as an interactive table of contents.

Using the various options it is also possible to display one tracker (for example vertical) on large screens and another (horizontal in this case) on small screens. On top of that it is very easy to control the position, behaviour and appearance of each tracker individually.

Setup

  1. Copy the files from the css and js directories to your corresponding asset directories.
  2. Include the advanced-progress-tracker.css or advanced-progress-tracker.min.css in the <head>
<link href="css/advanced-progress-tracker.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

  1. Include jQuery (if you haven't already) followed by advanced-progress-tracker.js or advanced-progress-tracker.min.js in the <head>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/advanced-progress-tracker.min.js"></script>

  1. Initialize the plugin below the included scripts, like so:
<script type='text/javascript'>
    $('body').progressTracker();
</script>

Or with custom options...

<script type='text/javascript'>
    $('body').progressTracker({
        horNumbering: false,
        horTitles: true,
        horMobileOnly: true,
        verTracker: true,
    });
</script>
