How to Add Parallax Background in Magezon Page Builder

Add parallax background in Magezon Page Builder

Parallax scrolling is a special effect in web design where background content (e.g. images) moves at a slower speed than foreground content while scrolling. Parallax scrolling creates an illusion of depth with a 3D effect, thus definitely making your sites more lively and grabbing visitors’ attention.

In today’s article, we’ll look at how to add background with parallax scrolling effect in Magezon Page Builder

Step 1: Add Background

* Please note that with Magezon Page Builder, you can add background for rows, columns and even elements. 

1. Open the page you are building with Magezon Page Builder. In the builder area, hover over the row, column or element you want to add background. A top bar will show up like this:

2. Hover over Row section in the bar, then click Design Options in the drop-down menu to add background for the row. Do the same to add background for column and element. 

Open design options

A popup will be opened as follows:

Design option tabs

3. Scroll down and you’ll see Background Type with 2 options: Image and Youtube/Vimeo. Just choose your wanted background type.

If you select Image type, simply upload an image or select it from the media gallery to set as background.

If you select Youtube/Vimeo type, you need to both upload an image and enter video link to make the video background work. Also, you can decide Start Time and End Time of the video (in seconds) and whether or not to enable video background on mobile.

– Parallax scrolling works with both image and video background. 

– A parallax background for row will look better if the row is at full width (in other words, the row stretches to cover the full width of the browser). To set a row at full width in Magezon Page Builder, please do the following:

1. In Row settings popup, open General tabs.

In Appearance field, choose from 3 options: Full Width Row, Full Width Row and Content and Full Width Row and Content (no paddings) to set the row at full width. 

Set full-width row

2. Next, open Design tab in the page you’re editing and choose 1 column Full Width in Layout

Set page layout at 1 column full width
