This article will provide you with a best practice for the scrolling function on your pages.
- Place Important Information & Action Items at the Top: Crucial navigation elements and content that calls to action should be at the top of any page. Long page content that will likely scroll is acceptable, as long as it is made obvious that there is more to see below.
- Reasoning: With a multitude of device sizes in use today, there is no longer an ideal screen size. Different devices display web pages at varying sizes and a user may miss some information if it is not easily accessible at the top of a page. See Responsive Web Design for more information about how to adapt websites to fit multiple devices.
