Smooth parallax scrolling effect for background images using the Jarallax
plugin from nk-o.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Visit the configuration page under Administration > Configuration > User
    Interface > Jarallax (admin/config/user-interface/jarallax).

  • Adjust the default settings and add the elements that you wish to add the
    parallax effect to. The parameters follow the options
    provided in the Jarallax library.


Long term vision includes:

  • Implementing more of the basic options into the admin UI.
  • Implementing Jarallax element and Youtube/Vimeo background video options.
  • Adding a modified hero block that lets you add image, text, etc. and
    configure the parallax effect all in one place.


Please add and review usage guidelines in the Wiki.
