Roots Discourse

Live Examples


Looks fantastic! Great!

Just a question: when I scroll down on my Chrome 67.0.3396.87 for macOS, the background of the navigation turns white (from transparent) while it moves up to hide. Is that on purpose?

edit: oh, and I really love the typography on both websites.


Glad you like it!

Yes, the behavior you describe is intentional: If the nav bar were to remain transparent when overlayed on the page, it would easily end up overlayed on top of content which would make the nav bar very difficult to read and interact with, so it has the following behavior:

  • When at the top of the page, the nav bar is transparent
  • When the user scrolls down, the nav bar slides up and out of sight
  • When the user scrolls up, the nav bar appears again, but opaque
  • …Unless the user scrolls all the way to the top of the page, at which point the nav bar becomes transparent again.


Yes, that makes sense now. Possibly hidden navigation would be decremntal to the ux, especially if the bar is not sticky.


Both are stunning, great stuff.


Both of the sites look great. What parts of the roots ecosystem did you use for them?


Thanks! Both of them are built on Sage, and managed/deployed by an internal tool that was very heavily Bedrock-inspired (our hosting environment wouldn’t allow us to use Bedrock or Trellis). One of them was based on my own (slightly modified, now somewhat behind) fork of Sage.


We launched a site for a South African photographer, built using Sage 9


You’re probably aware, but there’s a problem with the site at the moment.


built on sage 9. We use 8.5.4 for work at the agency still but that was just a revised portfolio I threw up when 9 came out. enjoy.


It’s back up again - no idea why it was down :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


all Roots - Sage 9

Hi all,

I’ve recently launched this site with SAGE 8.5.1. Last before SAGE 9:

It’s a corporate website for a well know agency in Spain:


I just launched - full Roots stack with Sage 9. I’d love any feedback!

A few personal firsts in this one. First time writing a custom plugin to make API for property data. First custom AJAX search.


Another project based on Sage9!
