I use a “Home” custom post type, much better than using pages so they can still be used.

This has given me a good idea… CPT “Home page layout” has the multi-select/sorter to pull in any page the user wants and handle sorting. Hopefully they would only want to pull in pages that they had filled out using the provided sortcodes.

Could you please elaborate on your version of this?

Chrome on my Nexus 7: the whole page jitters because the countdown constantly changes size. Consider giving it a min-width?

Hi All,

Working on our first WordPress theme to be converted from an existing, approved, single-page HTML template. Currently considering the best way to handle the structure of pages and how they will be included into the single page layout.

Here is what I’m currently considering: Each section in the one-page layout is a standard WordPress page using our theme’s ‘section’ template. At least one page must use the ‘Home’ template which is used to form the start of the page then loop through and pull in the rest of the sections. There will be a select/sort settings field in the options panel that will enable the user to add which sections they want included in the page and in what order . A toggle will allow switching between an automatically generated menu (based on selected page sections) and the WordPress menu function. Other necessary pages such as ‘blog’ are added to the end of the menu.

Shortcodes will be provided to give user access to the theme’s distinct features such as slide layouts, team, testimonials, columns and all the usual suspects. I understand that native WordPress facilities should be used wherever possible, so featured images etc. will be used where appropriate. It is also my understanding that content should always be portable in case the user changes themes. To support this, the shortcodes will be supplied in a plugin so the user can have access to their content after the change.

Does this sound like I am heading in the right direction? What is the generally accepted standard and best-practices approach to one-pagers? Can anyone offer suggestions?

Looking forward to a long and prosperous Themeforest journey!

Cheers, James

The entire design hinges too heavily on the photography. Try replacing all the photos with placeholder.it blocks and you’ll see how underdone the design is. I know it’s supposed to be minimal but there aren’t any premium finishes that make minimal templates work (eg. typographic flair)
