WordPress is a great platform for blogs and websites with multiple pages, but what if don’t have the time or skills to create a multi-page WordPress site? Or if you need just the one as a landing page to promote a mobile app, or a simple portfolio or online resume to showcase skills and draw new clients. Well, the good news is WordPress has many attractive single-page WordPress Themes available as well.
As expected, single-page themes display everything on 1 page, so there’s only one URL that you have to be concerned about. Many of these themes have different sections, all in the same page, that you can customize as desired. You will probably be impressed with the transition effects among other cool special effects.
