Hey, I'm Matt and I just started with this course... just a quick question: You're using Sublime, but I'm used to Atom. Is that going to be a problem during the course?

Issues I'm trying to solve, would appreciate any help:

  1. Constistently lags while scrolling through different sections.
  2. Clicking nav links causes jerky jumps to sections instead of smooth scrolling
  3. When resized to a smaller screen, and the nav collapses into a menu button, the menu doesn't collapse again after clicking a link to navigate to.

Can anyone point me to some resources that might help with my 2nd and 3rd issue? The 1st might be some mess up with my code

Your culprit is the 'background: fixed'. Something about the browser having to repaint with background set to fixed.

Thank you for the feedback! I will change it and check again.
Well removing the parallax reduces but doesn't remove the issue :(. the parallax was part of what I liked about my page. Any other reasons? because there doesn't seem to be an issue in this page: http://codepen.io/diomed/full/dOeOve/

Made some minor modifications:

Seem to have some lag.

the lag is due to the images rendering I found out. thanks for your time though :). and the reason I started the div for the first background above the nav was because the bg wasn't spanning the whole page. @futuregit
