Not everyone wants this button to show up so it's not built in.
As for hoping to find a solution that doesn't involve HTML, well I guess you have to speak the language the browser understands and that language is HTML. When in Rome...
If you want it available in an easier form, Go to Dashboard->Stacks and create a new stack called 'Go To Top'. Add an HTML block to that stack and paste the code above into it and approve the changes.
Now whenever you want this button to show up on a page, just edit any area and choose 'Add a Stack' instead of a block. Find your 'Go To Top' stack in the list and your done. It doesn't matter what area you choose.
If you want this button to show up on every page without manually inserting it, here's how to do that. Put your page in edit mode and look near the top (or bottom) for any area that says 'Add to SITEWIDE Area Name'. Go to Dashboard->Stacks and find a stack by that name in the top section of the Stacks list. Edit this stack by adding an HTML block to it and paste the code above in and approve the changes.
Now the button will show up on every page and you can't stop it from showing up. If you do this remember to remove it from the 'Add header content' on the pages where you had manually added it before.
For everyone's reference, I added 'type="button"' to make sure that the text input field didn't come up. this was especially important using any mobile device, where the keyboard would usually pop up in the middle of browsing.
<input type="button" id="scrollup" value="Go To Top">
i don't know if this works only in version5.6.
i tried it in 5.7.3 and only the button shows in its correct position but without scrolling up.
in edit mode, it works fully though.
thanks for your input.
It works for me on a 5.7 test site.
i use newest firefox and safari (mac) on a site with "elemental" theme.
it shows, but does not go to top. no change of cursor.
as long as logged in: all fine.
i check if i find an error somewhere.
and tada ! i works.
