A while ago, we released a new headers & footers feature for landing pages. While working on further improvements to it we noticed that there were some header designs we couldn't accomplish the way we wanted, with the current features.
As a solution, we've added a new “Scroll Behavior” feature in Thrive Architect. Watch the video to see how you can use this feature to create awesome header layouts and how it can be used in various other ways to enhance your pages.
New in Your Editor's Sidebar
When you update Thrive Architect to the latest version and select an element, you'll find a new panel in the sidebar:
Note that the Scroll Behavior panel is available the following elements:
- Background Section
- Content Box
In practice, this means you can basically make anything scroll in various ways as shown in the video. All you need to do is create a content box or background section and place all the elements you want to apply the scroll behavior to, inside it.
For detailed instructions on how to use each individual feature in the panel, check out this knowledge base article.
It's All About Attention
We originally created this feature to allow more complex header layouts like the double and triple header example I showed in the video. Since the feature is available as a general option in Thrive Architect, there are many more things you can use it for.
Whenever you want to keep something in view for a certain portion of your page, the scroll behavior feature is exactly what you need.
This makes it a very useful optimization tool. After all, a big part of conversion optimization is about drawing someone's attention to the right place, at the right time. Keeping something in view on scroll is highly attention-grabbing.
I'd love to know how you will make use of this feature on your own website. And if you have any ideas about how we can make this feature even more useful, we'd love to hear your suggestions, too!
