Highlight on scroll
var top = $(window).scrollTop();
var offset = 130;
var trigger = top+offset;
var elements = $('h1, h2, li');
checkElements(trigger, elements);
function checkElements(top, el){
// circle through elements
for (var i=0; i<el.length; i++){
// get top and bottom of element
// color is triggered when in between
var up = el[i].offsetTop;
var height = el[i].clientHeight;
var bot = up+height;
if(el[i].className == 'active'){
if(top < up || top > bot){
el[i].className = '';
} else if (top > up && top < bot){
el[i].className = 'active';
