fullPage.js – jQuery Plugin for Fullscreen Scrolling Websites

A simple and easy to use libary to create fullscreen scrolling websites (also known as single page websites or onepage sites). It allows the creation of fullscreen scrolling websites, as well as adding some landscape sliders inside the sections of the site.

There are many ways to install the necessary files but if you prefer to use a CDN to load the needed files, fullPage.js is in CDNJS: https://cdnjs.com/libraries/fullPage.js


Required HTML structure

Start your HTML document with the compulsory HTML DOCTYPE declaration on the 1st line of your HTML code. You might have troubles with sections heights otherwise. The examples provided use HTML 5 doctype <!DOCTYPE html>.

Each section will be defined with an element containing the section class. The active section by default will be the first section, which is taken as the home page.

Sections should be placed inside a wrapper (<div id="fullpage"> in this case). The wrapper can not be the bodyelement.

<div id="fullpage">
	<div class="section">Some section</div>
	<div class="section">Some section</div>
	<div class="section">Some section</div>
	<div class="section">Some section</div>

If you want to define a different starting point rather than the first section or the first slide of a section, just add the class active to the section and slide you want to load first.

<div class="section active">Some section</div>

In order to create a landscape slider within a section, each slide will be defined by default with an element containing the slide class:

<div class="section">
	<div class="slide"> Slide 1 </div>
	<div class="slide"> Slide 2 </div>
	<div class="slide"> Slide 3 </div>
	<div class="slide"> Slide 4 </div>

You can see a fully working example of the HTML structure in the demoPage.html file.


All you need to do is call fullPage.js inside a $(document).ready function:

$(document).ready(function() {	$('#fullpage').fullpage();

A more complex initialization with all options set could look like this:

$(document).ready(function() {	$('#fullpage').fullpage({		//Navigation
		menu: '#menu',
		lockAnchors: false,
		anchors:['firstPage', 'secondPage'],
		navigation: false,
		navigationPosition: 'right',
		navigationTooltips: ['firstSlide', 'secondSlide'],
		showActiveTooltip: false,
		slidesNavigation: false,
		slidesNavPosition: 'bottom',		//Scrolling
		css3: true,
		scrollingSpeed: 700,
		autoScrolling: true,
		fitToSection: true,
		fitToSectionDelay: 1000,
		scrollBar: false,
		easing: 'easeInOutCubic',
		easingcss3: 'ease',
		loopBottom: false,
		loopTop: false,
		loopHorizontal: true,
		continuousVertical: false,
		continuousHorizontal: false,
		scrollHorizontally: false,
		interlockedSlides: false,
		dragAndMove: false,
		offsetSections: false,
		resetSliders: false,
		fadingEffect: false,
		normalScrollElements: '#element1, .element2',
		scrollOverflow: false,
		scrollOverflowReset: false,
		scrollOverflowOptions: null,
		touchSensitivity: 15,
		normalScrollElementTouchThreshold: 5,
		bigSectionsDestination: null,		//Accessibility
		keyboardScrolling: true,
		animateAnchor: true,
		recordHistory: true,		//Design
		controlArrows: true,
		verticalCentered: true,
		sectionsColor : ['#ccc', '#fff'],
		paddingTop: '3em',
		paddingBottom: '10px',
		fixedElements: '#header, .footer',
		responsiveWidth: 0,
		responsiveHeight: 0,
		responsiveSlides: false,
		parallax: false,
		parallaxOptions: {type: 'reveal', percentage: 62, property: 'translate'},		//Custom selectors
		sectionSelector: '.section',
		slideSelector: '.slide',
		lazyLoading: true,		//events
		onLeave: function(index, nextIndex, direction){},		afterLoad: function(anchorLink, index){},		afterRender: function(){},		afterResize: function(){},		afterResponsive: function(isResponsive){},		afterSlideLoad: function(anchorLink, index, slideAnchor, slideIndex){},		onSlideLeave: function(anchorLink, index, slideIndex, direction, nextSlideIndex){}

Creating links to sections or slides

If you are using fullPage.js with anchor links for the sections (using the anchors option or the attribute data-anchor in each section), then you will be able to use anchor links also to navigate directly to a certain slide inside a section.

This would be an example of a link with an anchor: http://alvarotrigo.com/fullPage/#secondPage/2 (which is the URL you will see once you access to that section/slide manually) Notice the last part of the URL ends in #secondPage/2.

Having the following initialization:

$(document).ready(function() {	$('#fullpage').fullpage({
		anchors:['firstPage', 'secondPage', 'thirdPage']

The anchor at the end of the URL #secondPage/2 defines the section and slide of destination respectively. In the previous URL, the section of destination will be the one defined with the anchor secondPage and the slide will be the 2nd slide, as we are using the index 2 for it. (the fist slide of a section has index 0, as technically it is a section).

We could have used a custom anchor for the slide instead of its index if we would have used the attribute data-anchor on the HTML markup like so:

<div class="section">
	<div class="slide" data-anchor="slide1"> Slide 1 </div>
	<div class="slide" data-anchor="slide2"> Slide 2 </div>
	<div class="slide" data-anchor="slide3"> Slide 3 </div>
	<div class="slide" data-anchor="slide4"> Slide 4 </div>

In this last case, the URL we would use would be #secondPage/slide3, which is the equivalent to our previous #secondPage/2.

Note that section anchors can also be defined in the same way, by using the data-anchor attribute, if no anchorsarray is provided.

Be careful! data-anchor tags can not have the same value as any ID element on the site (or NAME element for IE).

Creating smaller or bigger sections

Demo fullPage.js provides a way to remove the full height restriction from its sections and slides. It is possible to create sections which height is smaller or bigger than the viewport. This is ideal for footers. It is important to realise that it doesn’t make sense to have all of your sections using this feature. If there is more than one section in the initial load of the site, fullPage.js won’t scroll at all to see the next one as it will be already in the viewport.

To create smaller sections just use the class fp-auto-height in the section you want to apply it. It will then take the height defined by your section/slide content.

<div class="section">Whole viewport</div>
<div class="section fp-auto-height">Auto height</div>

Responsive auto height sections

Demo A responsive auto height can be applied by using the class fp-auto-height-responsive. This way sections will be fullscreen until the responsive mode gets fired. Then they’ll take the size required by their content, which could be bigger or smaller than the viewport.
