Stacks Image 642

Stellar

Allows you to have an eternal moving background image as a background behind any other stacks content.

Overview.

The stack provides a means for you to create an area of your page that has an eternally moving background image. You can choose the image and set the speed and direction of the eternal movement. The stack allows you to place any other stack inside, and thus over the moving background (just like the demo banner above).

The stack ships with a default stars image tile to get you started, as seen in the demo at the bottom of this page. But you may use your own background image by simply dropping it into the image drop zone provided.

Live demo.

You can see a few live examples of the stack in action in both the top banner on this page, and at the bottom of this page.

The demos are the moving images in the background. We have just added an image stack and some text inside the Stellar demos content areas to be displayed over the top of the moving backgrounds. You can add any other stack you like as content.

Stacks edit mode.

We pay great attention to how we approach the editing interface of every stack, to ensure intuitive ease of use.

By default the stack gives you the stars background image to get you started. You can swap this for your own by dropping your own image into the drop zone in the stacks settings. Just drop any other stack inside Stellar to be displayed over your moving background.
