Smooth Scrolling with MooTools Fx.SmoothScroll
I get quite a few support requests for my previous MooTools SmoothScroll article and the issue usually boils down to the fact that SmoothScroll has become Fx.SmoothScroll. Here's a simple usage of Fx.SmoothScroll.
<a href="#contact">Contact Us</a> <!-- goes down to the contact area -->
<!-- more stuff here -->
<a name="contact" id="contact"></a>
<-- more stuff here -->
The only HTML requirement for Fx.SmoothScroll is that all named anchors be given an identical id attribute.
Fx.SmoothScroll accepts two arguments: the area to scroll (defaults to the window) and options for the class. The default options are usually sufficient. One recommendation I do have is to make the duration quick -- no one wants to wait for the animation to finish.
My team mate Edna Piranha is not only an awesome hacker; she's also a fantastic philosopher! Communication and online interactions is a subject that has kept her mind busy for a long time, and it has also resulted in a bunch of interesting experimental projects...
Last year I wrote a popular post titled AJAX For Evil: Spyjax when I described a technique called "Spyjax":
One excellent way to add dynamism to any website is to implement a slideshow featuring images or sliding content. Of course there are numerous slideshow plugins available but many of them can be overkill if you want to do simple slideshow without controls or events.
