  1. I like the information you have here but I am finding the links slide past where they should go. The seem to end halfway through the text section instead of opening to the top of the section. Thoughts?


      1. So what happens when i put in the anchor links, is that clicking on the navigation link brings the user to halfway through the text of the correct section of the one page layout 2017 WP theme.
        Clicking on the link should bring the user to the top of the correct section of the text where the span is located. It does not.


      2. Hallo,
        did you find a solution? It seems i have the same Problem, it all scrolls very fine to the content of the site but the titel is always hide behind main manu.


      3. Anchors have always been a problem in HTML – they have never worked correctly and they are worse on the 2017 Theme 😦 No matter where you put them the tool is just faulty and the 2017 theme even more so. smh
        So no I do not have a solution.


  2. Do you find that sites created with twentyseventeen have jumpy images when scrolling (with internet explorer and edge)?


      1. Sorry. When viewing any site which uses the twentyseventeen theme (including the sample on the wordpress site), using internet explorer or edge, when you scroll down the page, the photos in the background jitter / shake…


  3. Thing is that when you have a single column selected (time options) the scroll passes the page title and scrolls directly to the page content…
