Scroll Snap

Scrolling websites using Chrome or WebKit-based browsers may feel choppy if they contain parallax effects or animations that require users to scroll. To address this, add a plugin that enables visitors to scroll smoothly.

Scroll Snap plugin by CodeCanyon is one such free plugin designed to make scrolling on websites smoother by employing JavaScript for this purpose.

This plugin also offers various settings to personalize your scrolling experience, including setting the number of pixels between scroll events as well as controlling speed and acceleration of scrolling. Furthermore, it detects mobile devices to ensure a seamless user experience on both desktops and smartphones.

Enabling scroll navigation enables your visitors to move from section to section seamlessly on your website, making for an effective experience and seamless transitions between sections. This feature is especially helpful for sites with longer pages where smooth transitioning between them may be desired.

Link the menu anchor to a particular section by using your WordPress dashboard and opening Elementor Editor on that page, before finding where scroll navigation needs to go in Elementor editor for that section.

Anchor Links

Anchor links allow visitors to quickly jump to particular sections of a page without scrolling, without clicking around endlessly. They serve as clickable links that direct people directly to where they need to be – such as newsletter subscription forms or stores. Anchor links are especially beneficial on one-page websites like Elementor because creating them is straightforward and visual.

Elementor allows you to easily create anchor links by using its Menu Anchor widget. Simply drag it onto your page, selecting an element such as buttons or text and using its link field as your anchor point, before entering a name for your anchor link – make sure it matches up with whatever identifier was assigned – such as #linkname

Once your link has been created, clicking it will cause its content to gradually scroll to its anchor ID-containing section of your webpage. This feature makes your web pages more user-friendly and conversion-focused while giving visitors an immersive browsing experience.

Motion Effects

Are you looking to add an intriguing element to your website? Smooth scrolling with motion effects could add the finishing touches. In the past, web designers were forced to rely on third-party libraries in order to create parallax effects and animations; but Elementor Pro 2.5 makes this easier by offering all these tools directly in its editor.

Scrollsequence plugin makes it easy to create scroll animations of various kinds. There are various settings you can customize for each sequence, enabling you to see its results immediately in the visual preview. Furthermore, you can even alter its default behavior; whether the effect should kick in as soon as a visitor starts scrolling or only when they scroll down.

Another feature of the plugin is its ability to set how fast an element should move when visitors scroll. You have three choices for this setting – Direction, Speed and Viewport. Direction determines in what direction an element should move; Speed controls how fast it will move; Viewport specifies how much of its height it uses up.

The plugin also includes a Scale effect, which enables you to expand and shrink elements according to their scrolling rate. For instance, you could make certain elements larger when visitors scroll down while small when scrolling upward. Another useful setting is Stick to Id, which keeps an element visible even when scrolling downwards.
