WP 5.6 breaks anchor scroll, sticky menu, parallax backgrounds in Betheme

edited December 2020 in BeBuilder

As title, WordPress 5.6, presumably due to jQuery changes, has broken the scroll action available for links to anchor tags. ie. any href="#target" with class="scroll" no longer functions.

To be clear, this does not fail gracefully with only the animation missing, unfortunately the link does not work at all. This is breaking rather a few of our sites.

Sticky menu is also no longer sticky.

Parallax backgrounds also non-functional (they appear but static).


  • Hello,

    It looks like some bug with parallax that appeared after recent updates.

    We will take a closer look at it, and we are going to fix this as soon as possible.

    If you need some workaround for that at the moment, you can change the Background | Position to fixed.

    But I have tested the anchor links and they worked for me.

    Please always attach a link to your website so we can check it out. If the page is offline(localhost) then our help will be limited, you will have to contact us when the page is online. Also please make sure that the page is not under maintenance before you provide us the link.

    It is always a good idea to also attach a screenshot, for that use services like snag.gy or pasteboard.co

    Anchor Scrolling & Sticky Header issue is fixed in Betheme 21.9.5 :D

  • We are having the same issue with Parallax. It is breaking all of our websites and we've had to revert back to an older WP version. Do you have an estimate on when the fix will be released?

    Thank you!

  • Hello @kar0898,

    We are working hard to fix that as soon as possible.

    We anticipate that the fix for that issue will be released next Monday.

    Best regards
