Help adding a non-animated down arrow to tell users to scroll down

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.queeniedang.com

Hi!
On my portfolio website I have a large header section that takes up the whole screen, with a project gallery underneath. I want to add a simple arrow like the one in the attached image (crossed out the persons name for privacy). 

If the arrow could be clickable and actually move the page down, that'd be neat. However I just want something simple so if making it clickable will make it complex, then I'd rather just have the simple arrow.

 

Thanks!

Could you try this code?

How do I make the scroll down arrow on my homepage clickable and to scroll down to the section below? - Coding and Customization - Squarespace Forum

I have added the code but it duplicates the arrow. See below and I've added the code below the screenshot:

@bangank36 Thanks

Replace the script part with this

<script>
	$(function() {
      $("#page .sections > section:first-child").append('<a href="#" class="next-section"><span></span></a>');
      $('a.next-section').on('click', function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: $("#page section:first-child").next().offset().top}, 500, 'linear');

@bangank36 Amazing, thank you!

Would you know what I need to change to make it bounce like the following link: https://www.cookmellow.com/

Update the whole script for animation change

@bangank36 Thank you, appreciate it.

Replace this if you only want it on homepage

<script>
	$(function() {
      $(".homepage #page .sections > section:first-child").append('<a href="#" class="next-section"><span></span></a>');
      $('a.next-section').on('click', function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: $("#page section:first-child").next().offset().top}, 500, 'linear');
      });
    });
</script>

Sorry this is a late response, but it works great! Do you know how to change/remove the word "scroll"? I kind of just want the arrow 🙂

snippet just have arrow, not the 'scroll'
