on swipe to next slide; jump to top

Is there a function already built it or a minor tweak that can be made so that when I swipe left or right to any given slide, instead of being taken halfway into the next slide, I'll be taken to the very top of the slide.

This is essentially being used for the content within a mobile site and so when swiping it's confusing when swiping into the next slide. I'm sure this could be a helpful option to others too.

Hope that makes sense

Thanks for any help!

    Honestly, I don't really understand what you want, what you mean by "when swiping left it'll be taken to top of slide"? Please be more descriptive or draw simple illustration, and I'll tell you if it is possible.

    I am using Royal Slider for the 'content slide' .

    I am using it for a mobile based website. So each 'slide' is a page.

    Being on a mobile device, the pages (slides) are quite long.

    So if I swipe in either direction I will be taken halfway into the next slide - ideally I would like to swipe and be taken to the very top of the next or previous slide.

    Hope that makes more sense, thanks for the response!

    Oh, I get it now. Well, you may use slider API to scroll to top after slide change. See events subsection - http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/documentation/#api

    great, thanks so much - I'm not actually that great with API - where would I edit / add code to make this happen? - I literally have no idea at this point.

    If you don't work with JS I recommend you hiring someone, cause you may create mistakes that you're not aware of. Anyway, you need to put this code in document.ready(), after slider initialization, it'll scroll window to top before changing of slides.

    var slider = $('.royalSlider').data('royalSlider');
    slider.ev.on('rsBeforeAnimStart', function() { 
        $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 200);
