Scrolling currently plays a major role in the design of websites and applications. But the question is how can it be used to design modern and professional sites?

First of all, for those unfamiliar with the word scrolling, we need to explain that when you scroll to a website or an application at the bottom of the site or its application (using the mouse roller, the arrow key on the keyboard, or swiping the screen), You are actually scrolling through a site or program.

Scrolling actually engages the user and engages them with the website. Sometimes scrolling through the site is fun, but most importantly, it actually tells a story to the user. One of the best ways to design a site is to look at the website as a storyteller, whatever the purpose of the site, the truth is that it is always telling a story to the user.

Today, most websites use Vertical Scrolling to guide the user to the internal pages of the site or to read the rest of the articles, which can be used in different types of web design.

Full Page Scrolling

Full screen scrolling has recently become one of the most popular methods in website design. One of the features of proper scrolling for site design is that in addition to visual effects, it also focuses on increasing the use of the site.

Fullscreen scrolling sites use JavaScript and CSS3 to make visual changes to photos to create a responsive website with outstanding graphic effects and, most importantly, a site with storytelling features.

By designing all-scroll sites, you can control the user’s path and how the site content is displayed to him. In fact, this system is very similar to browsing photo slides one after the other, which tells a story to the audience in a visual way.

One of the best ways to design a full scroll website is when you want to introduce a product.

Parallax Scrolling

Parallax scrolling is another way of designing scrolling sites. Parallax scrolling is simply a part of website design in which, when scrolling with the mouse roller, the background content – image or anything – moves at a different speed than the foreground content of the site. The design of this type of scrolling on the site is done with the help of JavaScript and CSS3, which has become very popular among web designers today.

The downside to Parallax Scrolling is that it still doesn’t work well in mobile browsers. This method also requires several high quality images that may increase the space occupied and the size of the website files. Of course, this problem can be solved by managing files and using this technology in certain places of the site and not all pages.

Infinite Scrolling

If your website has a lot of pages and archives, one of the best solutions to save the user from clicking too many links is to design the site using unlimited and endless scrolls. Infinite scrolling means that the site page is constantly loading content so there is no need to click to see the rest of the page. In fact, when you go to the bottom of the page using the mouse roller, the past information and archived pages are loaded and displayed without the need to click. Of course, this method also has weaknesses, one of which is the user’s lack of control over the content. Of course, this problem can be solved to some extent by categorizing the content and creating different sections on the site. In general, if the endless scrolls are not designed properly and in the right places on the website, they will waste users’ time.

Endless scrolls can be used to design extremely high-content sites, such as news websites or social networks. Twitter and Facebook websites are examples of using this method in designing their site.
