WordPress: Building a One-Page Style Site

Affiliation: UIUC

Provider: Lynda.com

Type: Streaming Resource

Description: One-page sites with JavaScript-based scrolling navigation are popular, especially for creative portfolios and company websites. However, in WordPress, single-page sites also have severe restrictions and can be hard to manage. This course shows you how you can create a dynamic one-page front page for your WordPress site that pulls content from different areas and displays it in a visually stunning way. This method allows the front page to update automatically as site content changes, without you having to constantly manage it. Staff author Morten Rand-Hendriksen will take you step by step through this solution: creating a new template and content pages, calling content to the front page with custom loops, and adding JavaScript to enable sticky menus and scrolling.
