Shift: Displaying parallax images on the homepage?

Recommended Posts

I’m currently on the Shift template and I’m unsure how to connect or “activate” the parallax images to show on the homepage, similar to the demo found here > http://www.squarespace.com/templates/?q=shift

Those individual elements show in my pages section, but do not currently show when i view my homepage. Unfortunately my site is under construction, so it’s locked down at the moment with password protect. Anyone have any ideas?

Are parallax images on the homepage possible?

I had this once that when you directly enter the link of (in your example) "RIDE" than this site was separated from the parallax connection of those 5 sites. But I'm sure that's not the problem?

did you place the background-images as "Thumbnail-images"

other reason could be that the images are to big and maybe CMYK?

you could also switch the template to another one, and switch again to yours. Then you get the example pages from the template you can compare with your own pages

hope that helps!

The Shift template uses Index Pages to create a parallax scrolling effect, which provides the illusion that the page is scrolling past the images faster than it actually does. There is more about this here:

Shift Index Pages

I would suggest getting in touch with Squarespace Customer Care for more information or assistance with setting this up:
