    After seeing Simon Marlow's superb single page portfolio parallax (scrolling) website in this forum I thought I would have a go myself.
    This scrolling page is intended to redirect people to various sites I have for different areas of my life.
    What you see is the first edition. I intend to improve on the smoothness of the scrolling
    I would welcome suggestions or reports of any thing not working too well.
    I realize mine is a rather pale copy of Simons

    I'm sort lost as to what the advantage is having this sort of site that redirects people to your other sites. I say sort of because I also sort of see a use! I have a page set up on AboutMe which I guess does the same kind of thing. I don't however every use the page in terms of directing people there.

    The Parallax part of Simon's site refers to the way the backgrounds move at a different speed then the page giving a 3rd dimension effect.

    Single page websites are quite good for short-n-sweet websites ideal for portfolios with the single call to action to get in touch.

    Feedback: I would get rid of the scrollbars for each of your 'pages'. Then I would use something like jquery to create a sliding scroll effect when the user clicks on your navigation.

    I don't see any such effect in FF.

    Nor in Safari - it goes up, it comes down and that's it.

    Thanks for the feedback. It seems to be working ok in various browsers.
    I realise mine doesn't do what Simon's does ....yet.!
    I'm going on to stage two, the parallax part next. It took me a bit of an effort to write the html for what I've done. Simon kindly helped me out with the bit to make it work ok on iPad.
    It's correct, I don't really need this site but I'm using it for learning and I have the domain name any way,
    Ian
