Parallax refers to placing an image in the background and then having text, buttons or other items scrolling over the top of that while the background image also moves while scrolling.
The parallax effect is created when the background image moves at a different rate than the stuff on top of it.
You can have one or several parallax sections on the home page each divided by solid or simple patterned color sections.
NOTE: Parallax only happens on the front page of the site.
Once past the Home Page the site can have full width content or a content/sidebar structure.
