Lax Scrolling on Mobile?

Recommended Posts


I posted this on the Pagelines 5 section, then realised that this may be better off in this section. Soz. 


Hey everyone, I'm having a little difficulty making my website mobile friendly. 

First off, my website is www.joshofalltrades.tech and I'm pleased with what I have done so far, the only problem that I am having is with the mobile version of the site. 

The main problem is the paralax scrolling doesn't seem to work on the mobile site. It looks really good when used on the desktop version, but on the mobile version the images that act as the background on the lax appear as regular pictures (they don't have the 'paralax' effect'). The two images that I am discussing are the pictures of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs

Does anyone have any fixes for this/ideas?? I've seen other mobile sites where the paralax scrolling does work, are they using something other than PG5?

Thank you kindly in advance (:

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      This just happened to a site I'm working on. When I decrease width of browser to check for responsiveness...the pagelines content section is not responding???

      While building my website, I set a padding of 5%, 25%, 5%, 25% so the text on the pages is not too wide.
      However, it looks crappy on mobile.
      How do I get the same effect and still have it look good on mobile?

      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!
