Setup the Parallax LayerSlider like the demo website

This video in this series provides an overview of how to setup the LayerSlider like you see on the Optional LayerSlider page of the Encounters demo website. Please note that this slider plugin is not part of this theme, but it is an option you may want to consider because of it’s capabilities and responsive features, but having the different layers slide in and around is a nice showcase feature to have! Also, please note that this is a commercial plugin which means it’s a paid to download plugin, but well worth it.

UPDATE: March 16, 2014

I’ve been checking out an alternative slider which you may want to look at if you are in the market for a commercial slider. I’ve been looking at the Revolution Slider instead of the LayerSlider, as it appears to be easier to use. Again, using these sliders are optional and not required. Revolution Slider
