For a smooth scrolling animation towards a #anchor, such as a button at the bottom to scroll to the top or a table of contents, this snippet does the job:

$(document).ready(function() {

	$("a.topLink").click(function() {
		$("html, body").animate({
			scrollTop: $($(this).attr("href")).offset().top + "px"
		}, {
			duration: 500,
			easing: "swing"
		return false;



<h1 id="anchor">Lorem Ipsum</h1>
<p><a href="#anchor" class="topLink">Back to Top</a></p>
