Anchor Links On Load #38

SuperScrollorama sends the page back to the top when the init function is called. That means the url's anchor hash is ignored—the page won't jump to the correct position automatically.

Is this a bug, or is it standard behavior?

This is standard behavior. We could add a setting to disable it. For now you can comment out line 39:

// $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 0);

An option to disable would be nice, unless it breaks something somewhere else. I assume you're doing the jump to the top for a good reason. I'll use your suggestion for now. Thanks.

To my mind it is in the code, because up until recently superscrollorama didn't work if you would have jumped past a pin or animation using an anchor link. It might also be there to trigger the first position check.

I also stumbled over this line and I think it can be removed and "doUpdateOnNextTick" should be set to true from the start to init the first position check.

I decided to remove this line from the code.
This line really has nothing to do what superscrollorama is supposed to do and so might be a surprising side-effect to people using it.
If the user wants to do a forced scroll to top at page load he should do it outside of superscrollorama.
If not superscrollorama calculates the correct animation and pin states/positions, even if the page is loaded with an anchor link or refreshed having scrolled down.
So there's really no reason to keep the line.

Hope you agree, @johnpolacek?

Works for me.
