Hi there

We have a search page where I use this code to scroll to the results when changing the search:

jQuery( document ).on( 'js_event_wpv_parametric_search_results_updated', function() {
jQuery('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: jQuery("#search-results").offset().top-180}, 'slow');

Now I'd like to use the same effect when coming to the search results page from a search field placed on a different page. We have a search field on our main page. But when opening the search results page, it doesn't scroll. I Is it possible to add the ID as an anchor in the shortcode?

{!{wpv-form-view name='only-search' target_id='123'}!}

Where I have "123" I would like to be able to set the URL including the ID, e. g. /search-page#search-results.

It that possible?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Marcial,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Based on what you're saying the search results page is different from the search page itself.

Do it like this.

jQuery( document ).ready(function() {
jQuery('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: jQuery("#search-results").offset().top-180}, 'slow');


The scroll should now activate when you navigate to the page after it has fully loaded.

Please let me know if this helps.


Thanks a lot, that works perfect!
