Section scrolling, or full page/section scroll, is a popular and modern tool to achieve the most immersive viewing experience on a website. Visuals are usually spread fullwidth to grab a viewer’s focus and to really showcase a magnificent photograph or beautiful product.
Section scrolling smoothly snaps to the next section on a site’s page as the user scrolls. When a user scrolls lower with either a mouse, trackpad, or the arrow key, they trigger a scroll. This animates the page to the next section. Sections can also be used to organize your site’s pages (including the Homepage, About, Contact, and FAQ), or be intended to share your company’s story, taking the reader on a timeline of events.
This is also great for doing presentation slideshows and if you’re looking to feature more interactive content. You can also combine section scrolling with entrance animations for foreground headings or images (ie. slide in, slide out, fade in/out, bounce in/out, etc.). Your modules would enter the screen when the next section is triggered and scrolling up.
If you’re wondering how to start a lifestyle blog, the first thing you should do is decide which topics capture your interest best. Speaking on what you’re passionate about will easily generate the best content. Finding your niche will also help determine what style of blog to create and which layouts better favour your particular focus.
Whatever your target, one key factor of the most beautiful and successful lifestyle blogs is that most all use WordPress! WordPress lifestyle blog themes put the control back in the hands of the user, allowing even the most technically unsavvy to publish blog posts and stylishly edit their content.
But without a little inspiration and a few WordPress tips & tricks, it’s hard to know where to begin and how to emulate the best of the best. We’ve done the legwork and put together the ultimate lifestyle blog WordPress theme, the Ultra Lifestyle. You can instantly have an identical site with our 1-click demo import and just edit the content.
Having a contact form on your site makes it simple for your clients and audience to interact with you. Choosing the right contact form plugin can be a bit daunting as there are so many to choose from. So we created this simple list of the top 10 best plugins out there to assist you in making the right choice.
WPForm is hailed as a beginner friendly contact form plugin for WordPress. It makes form building easy as it comes with templates and a drag-and-drop builder for customizations. They include a multitude of addons enabling you to add features such a Paypal integration, Stripe, custom captcha, and geolocation data. There are many more addons available for the plugin so if there is something particular you'd like your form to do, it is likely that there is an addon for that available.
Fee: This plugin has both a free and paid version. It is important to note that the paid version is a subscription, not a single purchase, so that should be kept in mind when making your purchase.
Hubspot offers this all-in-one contact form builder that allows you to build forms and pop-ups from three options. Either embed a contact form directly on the site, appear as a pop-up in the centre of your screen, or slide up as a small box from the bottom of the screen. The plugin also includes a dashboard to show the emails logged in your forms and a contact database with insights on your leads.
Fee: Free and with no time limit. However there are various price tiers of different plans available based on your needs.
