Single Page Design

Simple WordPress ThemeThe beauty of the Glider WordPress theme is in its simplicity.The single page layout allows content to be loaded on the same page. The user never has to leave or reload the home page to find the content they are looking for. Clicking a menu item causes the right content area to automatically jump to the relevant content area (About, Portfolio, etc.). Everything is contained all in one page. Very simple!

Note: because the Glider simple WordPress portfolio theme does not load content with different URLs, it does not maximize the benefits of search engine indexing.

Lightbox Portfolio Gallery

Simple Portfolio WordPress ThemeThe Glider simple portfolio WordPress theme was designed to help anyone publish an online portfolio. Creating image galleries for your portfolio items is fast and easy with the theme options panel and built-in portfolio page templates.

Once your portfolio page is setup, visitors can browse through pages of portfolio items. Clicking an image thumbnail opens a full size image in a professional lightbox overlay. This prevents the need for visitors to leave the page in order to view a full size image. They can also scroll through other images in the portfolio slideshow using the back and forward arrows.

Simple Portfolio WordPress Theme with Blog

Wordpress Portfolio ThemeWordPress was designed as a blogging platform that utilizes posts, pages, tags and categories. Many of these content organization features are not utilized with the Glider simple portfolio WordPress theme. This helps keep the layout cleaner and less text content disrupting the page design.

However, there are still some neat blogging capabilities built into this WordPress portfolio theme. The blog page template allows you to quickly publish topics relevant to your portfolio. Talk about new design ideas, promote event dates, and more!
