Animated Blocks on Scroll

Description

Add scroll based animations to WordPress Gutenberg blocks.

Features

  • Choose from 76 cross-browser CSS3 animations or add your own
  • Preview animations in the editor
  • Adjust the animation duration, delay, scroll threshold, and offset

Settings

  • Duration: The speed of the animation in milliseconds.
  • Delay: How many milliseconds to wait before animating the element.
  • Threshold: Add animation when x% of the element enters the screen.
  • Start with opacity 0: Set the element to opacity 0 when the page loads. The option works for elements transitioning to 100% opacity through CSS.
  • Offset Top (available in the block’s advanced settings): Number of pixels to offset the animated block from the top of the page. Useful when a page has a fixed top navigation bar.
  • Class name „ab-animation-end“ is added to the animated block after the CSS animation has ended. This class name can be used to add custom styles.

Requirements

PHP 5.6+ is recommended, WordPress 5.0+, and Gutenberg must be active.
