Hey Hey NYCTECHCLUB in the house!

How To: Parallax WordPress Website Custom CSS

So you’re making a parallax wordpress website using the NYC TECH CLUB video tutorial? Awesome!

I wanted to make this little guide to support the video on How to Make a Parallax WordPress Website so you understand what all the custom css that we’re pasting in is about and so you know what to change to customize your colors.

What you need to do:

  1. Go to (website)
  2. Decide what color you want your buttons and links to be (color codes here: http://htmlcolorcodes.com)
  3. Change color code into the red areas for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6
  4. Choose an alternative color for your contact form and post buttons (if you want)
    1. Paste in the alternative color code into 7 and 8
  5. Paste in code
  6. Paste in code for 9 to customize fancy header and footer
