Velocity from Shape 5

I actually had to look up the word velocity. I sort of knew what it meant, but I didn't know with absolute certainty what it really meant. Does that ever happen to you?

What I mean is, if I was to tell you that velocity means 'speed of motion' would you have known that was the Collins dictionary definition? There is every chance you did. I'm just getting old.

Swiftly moving on

Anyway, this is a new one from Shape 5 and it's called Velocity and while I usually write something now about how themes these days can be used for pretty much any type of website, but this one is geared towards a magazine or news site and it really does work this way.

It's got loads of module positions, is easy to set up and start using and as long as you've got your content, you're good to go.

This month Shape 5 have also added a new parallax backgrounds feature to the Vertex framework (that is what the theme is built on). Parallax is a Javascript effect that allows the background image of certain elements to scroll at a different speed than your browser. Sweet right?
