Add a Back to Top function in Wikivoyage desktop version

  • Problem: The content of any page of Wikivoyage is constantly increasing. Although we have the Pagebanner directory function, when the page moves down, Pagebanner will not follow it. So I think we can add the Back to Top function to the lower right corner of the page, which is convenient After clicking, return to the top Pagebanner block.
  • Who would benefit: Reader and editor
  • Proposed solution:Add a function for Back to Top or Pagebanner can move down with the page in Wikivoyage desktop version
  • More comments: This feature will help readers find the Pagebanner directory they want to query faster.

  • I wouldn't mind seeing the menu bar remain in place when scrolling down the page. Don't know if we need the whole banner. However, I don't see the point to a "back to top" link; Ctrl+Home works just fine. LtPowers (talk) 21:09, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
  • I like the idea of the menu bar and tabs staying in place when scrolling down a page. Acabashi (talk) 18:45, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Not all Wikivoyage versions use pagebanners. But a sticky TOC at the top could be useful, but could be implemented with some CSS/JS locally on the wiki. DerFussi 19:51, 8 December 2020 (UTC)


  •   Support However, I believe it is possible to replicate something like that by using templates. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 20:24, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose The Home button on keyboards already does this. No button is necessary on the screen. Martinkunev (talk) 23:44, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
    •   Comment @Martinkunev: Phones don't have a home button. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 10:43, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
      •   Comment @MarioSuperstar77: This suggestion is about the desktop version. The desktop version is by definition something not designed to work on phones. Martinkunev (talk) 11:32, 9 December 2020 (UTC
