    I am looking add mouse-wheel support to the ‘scrollTo’ method for scrolling to an ID or element. The attached jsfiddle seems to work partially, however, the mouse-wheel seems to scroll too far (skipping divs). If anybody can suggest a fix, that would be great. Thank You.

    Hi NSR!

    You could just add a flag which ignores mousewheel changes while the scroll animation occurs:

    var $current, flag = false;

    $(function() {
    $('body').mousewheel(function(event, delta) {
    if (flag) { return false; }
    $current = $('div.current');


    if (delta > 0) {
    $prev = $current.prev();

    if ($prev.length) {
    flag = true;
    $('body').scrollTo($prev, 1000, {
    onAfter : function(){
    flag = false;
    } else {
    $next = $;

    if ($next.length) {
    flag = true;
    $('body').scrollTo($next, 1000, {
    onAfter : function(){
    flag = false;


    Update the mousewheel plugin to 3.0.6, I think that fixes the issue. There were some changes in jQuery 1.7+ which required the mousewheel update.

    Try this:

    and this updated demo using the newest jQuery.

    Here is a demo of the final result of this thread. It’s a combination of the above updated demo with this one page nav demo.

    I thought I’d share it so others might benefit.

    Hey guys. I love this page and all your support.

    Im new at this and I never get to make it work on my pc. What am I doing wrong? I copy every part of the code in its tags, in the head or where it should. But it still doesn’t work. Am I missing something?

    Please HELP! Thanks

    @yabadabadoo: Did you include the jQuery file necessary? v1.6.4? It is not shown in any of the windows on jsFiddle.

    Yes @pcmac627 I actually did. Not working thow.

    Well here I put so you can tell me what is wrong.

    @yabadabadoo The order of script loading is incorrect. Load jQuery first:

    Thanks @mottie ! as simple as that.

    Ok so to complete the idea now I tried to do the same with the combined example and I don’t get the mousewheel effect. Thanks again!

    By the way: is there a way to change what you see in the URL bar at the time you navegate the sections? Like when you get to the section 3 the URL says www. example. net/Section3

    Hey Mottie,

    Thanks for the script. I want to use in on my parallax style website so one automatically scrolls to the next div when using the mousewheel. A question though: what do I have to add in the script such that the effect is also triggered when using the arrow keys. Good examples of this i find:

    Thanks a million

    Hi Mottie,

    Your script is exactly what I’m looking for! When implementing it turned out not to work with higher versions of jquery though. Any idea what I should do to fix this?

    Thanks a lot!

    Never mind, I found the update for jquery.scrollTo.js, now it works :)
