How To Add Back To Top Widget To Blogger Blog

Adding Back to top widget will bring a very good look to your blog. This is the second customization I did with my blog. Previously i used jquery's BackToTop plug-in But little disadvantage with that is we need to write CSS code for ourselves. So I think this is time to create our own BackToTop plug-in.
So, Last two days I worked on it, finally I got it.


demo

Today I will explain how to add this to your blogger blog also I will give you the actual code so you can use it as you like but please give the credit to by putting techumber.com signature.

You may contribute to this plug-in made it more beautiful.

This blog it self using this so you can see the live demo here also at bottom right.

The main advantage of this is you just need to add two lines of code other than that you don't need to do anything.

1)Image URL
2)Fade Speed
Ofcource i will work on it further and try to add more customization options.
