In this video, I show you how to add a scrolling progress bar to your Unbounce landing page.
This is a super awesome addition to your page that just shows the user where they are on the page. It’s definitely not necessary and you already have the scroll bar on the right side of the page, but this just adds a little flavor to the design and makes it look cooler.
This is very simple to set up. Simply follow these steps:
Unlike some other videos I made on Unbounce before, you don’t need any sort of element ID here – simply paste the code and that’s it for this step!
(2) The progress bar should now show up at the top of your page.
However, you might want to edit the color and the height of it.
To adjust the height number, simply delete the “8” that is there by default and replace it with the height in pixels that you want.
So if you want the height to be double of what it already looks like when you first put the code in, just double that height to “16. If you want to half it, then set it to “4” and so on.
To change the color, simply add the color code of whatever color you want instead of the one provided.
You can just head over to Google and type in “HTML color codes” and select any of the links provided there.
I used this website as an example: https://html-color-codes.info/
So you are free to use this one as well.
But that’s it! Save your work, publish your page, and you should have a working scroll bar!
Keep in mind that if you added the code from my previous video to this page already (the one with the “back to top” button here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA76BltV32M
This progress bar might not work correctly as they are incompatible.
But that’s it!
