Dear Nimble Builder users, this is the release note for the Nimble Builder plugin, version 1.1.9.


What’s new / improved ?

A parallax background option

The parallax effect has becomed quite famous in web design. It basically creates the visual impression that the background is moving slower than the other page elements, which is a good way to create eye catching section content.

You can see a live demo of the parallax effect on the first and last sections of this page.


To enable it in your sections built with the Nimble Builder :

  1. move your mouse over the desired section, open the section menu, and click on the settings icon
  2. Check the parallax option in the background settings of the section
