The Map it with Google module is displayed at the bottom of this page in the custom_3 position. Simply enter your address and the module uses the Google API to display a map with a marker to the address. A user simply clicks the marker and they are prompted with a popup box to get directions. Clicking "Get Directions" will take you to google maps with your business address already entered so all they have to do is enter their address to get directions. You can also specify the size of the map and whether or not to enable or disable certain controls.
The floating menu feature is a great way for your users to easily navigate your website! The floating menu will show at the top of your browser once the screen reaches a certain point. You can determine the exact point at which this occurs via the template specific area of Vertex. NOTE: This is a Vertex addition and is not guaranteed to work with all Vertex Templates. Some custom CSS may need to be adjusted per template. This feature is not supported by IE7/8.

Features at a glance:

  • Set a background image to the menu, gradient or solid color
  • Set to snap or smooth scroll in
  • Determine at which point as you scroll down your page that the menu drops in
  • and many more features, just check out the screenshot below

Parallax backgrounds as well as other background options are built directly into the Vertex Framework. Parallax causes the background image of an element to scroll at a different speed than your browser. For an example of this view the homepage of the Velocity template here and watch the background of the top_row1 area as you scroll down the page. This feature is found under "Backgrounds" tab in Vetex, where you can control the background for many areas of your website.


  • Set the scroll speed of the images
  • Set background repeat style
  • Set background image size, 100%, cover, contain, etc
  • Set custom backgrounds for all s5 rows in the framework.
  • Enable or disable parallax on a per row basis
