Beautiful scrollbar for WordPress with Scroller plugin

The Scroller is a beautiful scrollbar for WordPress website, any element on, or a whole WordPress page. The Scroller is explicitly designed to customize the scrollbar on your WordPress site. This WordPress plugin turns an ordinary annoying browser scrollbar into a lovely stylized scrolling control.


The Scroller may not be compatible with other scroll control plugins. If your WordPress website has a smooth scrolling plugin or another custom scrollbar plugin installed, they may not work together.

The installation process is typical for WordPress plugins. It is simple and easy. If you need help installing the plugin, read about Installing WordPress plugin.

Click on the Scroller in the WordPress side-menu, to open the plugin settings page:
