The Customizr theme introduces parallax scrolling for your sliders (carousels) 11


I’m really pleased to announce the introduction of a really cool feature in the Customizr theme : parallax scrolling for the sliders.

This feature has been introduced in Customizr Pro v1.2.28 ( Customizr v3.4.23 ).

Parallax backgrounds has become a webdesign standard to better engage users and improve the overall experience that a website provides.

In the Customizr theme, the option is enabled by default in the customizer > Global Settings > Image Settings (see below)

This new feature has been engineered to be lightweight so that it doesn’t impact your overall page load performances.

      Hi,
      The featured image size has not changed. If you are having any specific issue in your installation, you can post at the support forum.

  • Ohhhh this is really, really cool! Well done 🙂

    Hi,
    This happens because as the resolution goes higher, the width of the screen remains the same. So, instead of stretching the image to fill the width, the image is centered vertically and cropped on top and bottom.
    I don’t think it has any connection to parallax scrolling.

    • Ok, thank you. Maybe this has been like this before, and i just noticed it now because i bought a higjher res monitor 😀 But i was just wondering because the slider has the default images, and they act like that. … i mean, you would think the default slider has more “pro” way to acting images.

        Hi,
        How should a “pro” slider respond to change in screen resolution?

        • Good question 😛
          Maybe so that the important stuff doesnt get cut off, or the stuff that look weird when they get cut off, like in this case the curly arrow . .. so maybe it should be something like this: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8f964c078f03fe349496150202d5e351fb495dd973c30f291b4affdfa709e8c1.png

            Hi,
            Thanks. The important stuff may depend on the image (how the user uses an image). The assumption here is that the important stuff would be centered. In any case, I shall take your point to the notice of the developers. 🙂

              Hi,
              You can also try checking against
              Dynamic slider images centring on any devices under Image settings. This doesn’t cut off the slider images. Would this help?
