    Can you make the images on top of each other? So you can only see one image, but when you click on it, you will be able to scroll like you do at 50:00

    Great tutorial btw! Really enjoyed watching it!

    Had I watched this a few years ago this may have been of help for me so I am sure it will help others just starting out for the very first time trying to figure out how to create a web site of pages.

    This does not help me as I am trying to create a PROFESSIONAL business web site and everything I have seen from this and every other DIY platform — they all fall short — so I am trying the very difficult task of learning HTML CSS JAVESCRIPT JQUARY AJAX – PYTHON PHP SQL XCODE SWIFT and what ever else I need to learn to create my idea — NO I HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY OTHERS TO CREATE MY IDEA so I refuse to simply give up in life because life is hard.

    Thanks for doing this video for those others out there.
