“This is the best template I have purchased from themeforest!” — Said drakestrategies, 3-4 years of ThemeForest membership, and 50-99 items purchased.
Live PreviewCheck out the live preview of the landing-page! It is made of selected standard WordPress pages and are combined into one page, the top menu is built automatically and can be overridden with a custom menu to also include links to other pages.
Enterprise-Level FeaturesThe concept of this one-page website template is to provide a great experience going from one virtual-page to another, while keeping all the benefits of separate pages (accessibility, browser history, bookmarkable URLs, SEO, and more).
The other great implementation of this design is the flexible, responsive layout. With one website you actually get 3-4 specific layouts for desktops, tablets, phones, and any other devices: The layout adapts itself to what the browser is capable of displaying. Go ahead and resize your browser to its minimum width while looking at the live preview!
