This is way too complicated, probably pretty bad UX
?

What happens if i want two skills pages in my theme? Or if i don’t want a profile? Or if i want to move things?

I’m stick to whatever you’ve coded for me. I would not have any freedom with your theme..

These are great points guys, I will definitely look into changing the way I build my themes.

By the way, each section can be turned off, but yes I can see how the page loop would be the better method as the user would be able to rearrange the order of the pages/sections, and add as many pages as they want.

Nice work btw Ruben!

I just do with with shortcodes, usually the header & footer (usually a slider and a contact section) are defined by custom metaboxes on the page edit, and then the rest with shortcodes. With an OB buffer you can get shortcodes to really simply output complex loops etc. So a section would be something like;

[section id=”blog”] [blog] [/section]

Using the section wrapper you can then link the WP Nav to the ID as well, works out pretty well & it’s totally customizable.

I must admit it’s not the absolute best UX experience compared to something like a drag&drop, but I think it works better than a page loop.

I’m curious to why would you think this is better than the wordpress loop? I would think using default pages with a reorder plugin would work really well: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/my-page-order/

You know when you’re considering something, & think you’ve found the perfect way, then someone says something really simple that crumbles your world – I think that just happened! :D

I guess our too ways are very similar, I just don’t like to rely on plugins too much.

Bingo! But I am always open to having my world crumbled in order to rebuild a stronger one, with advice and professional tips from people like RubenBristian and FinalDestiny. ;)

Very true about plugins.

I am trying to build mine with queries instead of hard coding it as well. I am having trouble with it though because I found that some templates are being included twice and also the issue of getting single.php to load into index.php without reloading the page. I am now thinking that one massive query to cover everything might do the trick but that could be hard to figure out
