Want a parallax scrolling page that includes all of your pages?
Five3 makes it easy, and you’re about to learn how.
But before you continue, if you’re new to WordPress or you aren’t familiar with all the features of Pages in WordPress, head over to the WordPress Codex and have a read of the comprehensive guide to WordPress Pages. The rest of this article assumes you know all the intricacies of WordPress Pages.
Now that you know all there is to know about Pages, let’s learn how to make a parallax index page in Five3.
Five3 provides two custom page templates: the Index of all Pages template & the Current Page & its Children template.
The first of these will display all pages on your site on the one page. The second will display the current page and all of its subpages. You can learn more about creating subpages in the organising pages section of the WordPress Codex.
To use one of these custom templates, choose it in the Page Attributes metabox on the Edit Page administration screen. For example, check out the Five3 Features page which uses the Current Page & its Children template.
Now you have an index of pages, but how do you customise the order of the pages?
Five3 works with WordPress’s built in Page Order feature. Notice that Order section in the page attributes screenshot above? Changing the number in that section will change the location a page appears in your page index.
To have a page appear last, set the order to a high number, like 100. To have a page appear first, keep its order value at 0.
When using the Current Page & its Children template, the parent page will always appear at the top and the child pages will appear in order from smallest order number to largest order number. When using the Index of all Pages template, you can set any page to appear at the top by giving it the lowest order value.
