I've been away from Pagelines for a while now. I came back and was very impressed with all the new features and the new web design.
But then, as I dig around further I notice that things are still a mess.
Scroll Spy - I'd like to know what it is and how to use it.
I go to: to get a feel for what it is
The description mentions unicorns and spies in an effort to be cute
While cute, it's not helpful and quickly becomes frustrating when you read the 'explanation' Explanation
.scroll-header is the class that triggers the scrolling. The class can be added to any element, and is not restricted to headings.
Ok great. But what the heck is Scroll Spy?
Let's look it up in the pagelines documentation:
So, I go to:
I click on How to Use ScrollSpy:
In PageLines Framework 2.2, we have added a new called ScrollSpy. The ScrollSpy section adds an additional navigation bar that automatically updates nav targets based on scroll position. It is also useful for jumping from one section of your page to another instantly.
Great, a practical definition!
Let's look at the images. Wait, why do all the images say "

So, I hunt around for more info on the page and find these this:
ScrollSpy works within your Page's editor, as long as ScrollSpy is enabled on the template your page is using. For a more in depth look and tutorial on how to get ScrollSpy working on your page, please visit the new .
But that link goes here!
I find some more links that say:
In order to get ScrollSpy working on your page, it needs to be enabled in the Drag and Drop menu, and in the area.

I click that and it takes me to a page that says:
You guys really need to get it together. I just wanted a picture and definition of what the ScrollSpy section does. Next time I'll google it or just post to the forum or try to figure it out on my own, because the documentation/wiki is an obvious afterthought. Or maybe I'm supposed to buy Pagelines plus to deal with the headache?
The attribute title="Usage" is used as the actual label that sits inside the menu.
