Support » Theme: Highstarter » Header image is not sliding

    Hi Atanas,

    Looking at other Highstarter websites I noticed that, when scrolling down the page, the header image is sliding. On my site it doesn’t do that. How can I get my header image sliding?

    Regards, Thom

    Hi @thomschuthof ,

    Probably you are confusing this theme with another WordPress theme, written by me, Estera? Highstarter does not have a slider, you can only add a header image. If you really need a slider, you can use a plugin for that. However, please note that a slider can sometimes slow down the website’s performance. Unfortunately, I haven’t used a slider plugin before so I cannot really recommend something to you.

    Hi Anatas, I probably am expressing myself incorrectly. If you check the header of (a link from one of the other questions in this support page) whil scrolling down you can see what I’m trying to say with a sliding header image. If you than compare with the behavior of the header image on I hope my question becomes clear. Kind regards, Thom

    @thomschuthof ,

    I understand what you mean now. You want to enable the parallax effect on the header image. You can do that from the theme customizer => header options => parallax. If for some reason that does not work, try to add it via this custom css snippet:

    .site-header .site-branding {
        background-attachment: fixed;

    I hope this helps.
