Section Post Type removed from Parallax and Flat Theme

The Themify Builder's popularity has been growing, thanks to the increasing number of positive feedbacks from users because of its simple drag & drop framework. With this in mind, we've decided to update our Parallax and Flat theme by removing the section post type, and enable the users to use the Builder to customize pages and posts. This was done to avoid confusion, allow users more frontend page editing, and make everything integrated with our simple 'drag and drop' Builder. In addition to this, we have also updated our Parallax documentation page and created a video tutorial to show users how they can recreate many of the custom designs on the Parallax homepage with shortcodes. Now everyone can take advantage of our simple and easy-to-use drag & drop Builder with our Parallax and Flat theme on all their pages.

Note: To provide backward compatibility, the Section posts and the Query Sections pages will remain functional if your site has existing Section posts for both the Parallax and Flat themes. It is now easier to build the parallax scrolling pages with the Builder by following this tutorial.

    What will happen if we update a theme for a site already created with sections?

      It could be plugin conflicts. Try to disable all plugins and make sure you are using the latest version of Koi.

    Nice video, but I do believe it is incomplete, until you show how the menu is built, since the video is showing how to do the parallax scrolling, there is no scrolling without linking word or phrase!

    So here I am, trying to figure it out!

    New user here. Had a question, I see that section posts were removed form parallax and flat. I am looking at using the fullpane theme and in its documentation it says to use the section posts. It seems like you could reproduce the one page scrolling effects using the Themify Builder.
    Is fullpane an older theme which wasn’t updated for the removal of section posts? Should I be using section posts with this theme or try to mimick the format using themify builder for parallax.

      We’re updating Fullpane as well to replace the Section post type to Builder. An update post and a video tutorial should be released soon.
