Parallax Only Works if it is the First Section

Recommended Posts

mccooluk

Hi Danny, I have read through all the recent posts about the parallax background effect not working and there doesnt seem to be a resolution yet. Is this the case?

 

My situation is that the parallax effect will only work if it is the first canvas section on the page. As soon as I drop it lower down the page the background is static.

 

Here is the site Im working on:

 

http://greyfoxwebdesign.com/

 

It is the section with the text "from buying your domain...."

 

I have disabled all plugins, removed all scripts and customs css and this did not fix the issue

 

Thanks

 

Chris

Hi Chris,

 

It has been reported before, but when our developers performed a test, they were unable to recreate the issue. However, I have just this moment added three Canvas sections, all with the same image, same min-height etc.. and the third canvas section didn't perform the Parallax effect. So there must be some kind of issue.

I will report this again and inform our developers.

Thanks Danny.

 

If your developers can't recreate the issue, feel free to get in contact and I can set them up a login on my site for them to see a non-working example.

Hi Danny, has there been any update on this? I am still having the same issues and looking through the forums it was first reported over a year ago!

 

I sent over login details for the developers to see the issue on my site, but they never logged in to check.

 

Thanks

 

Chris

      Hi,
      I am having an issue with the Lax sections on Platform 5. I can embed a widget or text box into a Lax section which is really neat, but the image in the background (the parallax image) seems to get stretched and doesn't scale in an attractive way.  For example, the page http://ed6.61e.myftpupload.com/#clients has a parallax section with a woman's face  and I thought is would scale as the browser window gets smaller but the zoom-level never changes. Also, the amount of parallax shift seems more dramatic than what we want. I thought that if I uploaded a shorter image it would scan/scroll less since the height from the image's top to bottom would be less. However, that doesn't seem to have any effect and I am at a loss of how to properly control the way the image is displayed within that box. Any thoughts, tips, or suggestions to get me pointed in the right direction?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hi there! 
      I'm wondering if I can and how I can easily make a one page scrolling parallax site with menus which scroll rather than take me to a new page?
      Something like this: http://demo.vellumwp.com/home-pages/one-page-resort/.
      Thank you kindly
      Nate

      Hey,
      I've made a simple landing page for a friend, and while the parallax feature looks great on desktop, it resizes (zooms way in) the image on the mobile version and it looks really bad. When it first pulls up, the image looks like the correct size, but once I try to scroll on my phone, it zooms in the image and seems to have a slight parallax effect. 
      There are two separate sections that have a background image on the canvas with the "Alternative Parallaxed Background Image" effect. I was thinking that I could just disable the parallax on the mobile version only, but I haven't had success in figuring it out.
      Ideally, on the mobile site, I would like the background images to fit the full height of the screen instead of zoomed in so much. 
      Any suggestions? 
      Here is the site for reference: www.sweetnectarkirtan.com
      Thanks!

      The parallax and hero sections are jumping to the top of the template in PL5 See  here http://screencast.com/t/TLajih8MEM6
      No matter what I do, clear browser cache, whatever. The Parallax with the embeddded Hero section will ot stay on the bottom of the page above the footer.
      Help, please. This started happening at the worst possible time, when I was in a client meeting walking here through the site that is already LATE.

      does the LAX extension provide a parallax option?
