Infinite Scroll / Pagination Navigation

To set the pagination option, go to Themify > Settings > Theme Settings.

  • Infinite scroll means the posts are automatically loaded when it hits to the bottom of the page. If "Disable automatic infinite scroll" is checked, it will display a Load More button instead of auto loading.
  • Numbered page navigation will display the navigation in page number 1, 2, 3, etc.

Section Post Type Removal

Note: since Parallax 1.6.6, the Section post type has been removed. To provide backward compatibility, the Section posts and the Query Sections pages will remain functional if your site has existing Section posts. It is now easier to build the parallax scrolling pages with the Builder by following this tutorial.
