For a home page scroll block we can change the background color in this example of the edit page.
Parallex Scrolling Effect
To enable parallex scrolling effect whereby the background image moves at a different rate to the page scroll speed click the button parallex scrolling to on.
This will only be enabled if an image has been uploaded or a preset is being used. Apply a color with transaparency to give the layer a tint. If the color is set to full opacity the background image will not be visible.
Adjust the space given at the top of the strip container and the bottom of the strip container. Giving large values padding, plus a background image uploaded and having parallex scrolling on can give a modern web effect seen on many websites today.
Text Media Container
The default is to display any text / media added in the text editor within a centered container of fixed width. To over-ride this setting and force text / media to full the entire width of the screen select Full 100% width.
