I have created this jsfiddle with a floating back to to top button.
At the bottom of the page is a footer with 5 headings.
I want to be able to make the button be in a fixed position until reaching footer after which it goes up.
I am trying to imitate the functionality of back to top button at http://www.sony.com/all-electronics
I am terrible at jquery and javascript so please don't change the jquery already present in the jsfiddle
Rather add more below to make it do what I want.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I've updated the fiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/voz8p8w6/1/

you just need to detect when the footer element comes into view and make the floating "UP" fixed

Added to your backToTop function
var _height = scrollTop + window.innerHeight;
            if (_height > $('footer').offset().top) {
            	$('#back-to-top').addClass('fixed');
            }
            else {
            $('#back-to-top').removeClass('fixed');
            }

Open in new window

CSS
#back-to-top.fixed {
  position: relative;
  float: right;
}

Open in new window
