Stack from Nick Cates Design
Version 1.0.0 released 1 year ago
Some web design trends stay because of how we use things as humans, and one page site design has remained popular because scrolling down a page is refreshingly easy.
A one-page theme could be made, but every theme imposes it's own limitations. For a one page solution that can be used in any theme - we've created the Rails stack for RapidWeaver 6 and Stacks 3!
The Rails concept is simple, desktop visitors scroll down content sections aided by a navigation list. On mobile devices, the navigation list is hidden for uninterrupted swipe down behavior.
Rails streamlines one page content design, and adds control and context with a navigation list to swiftly move between sections. Customize Rails with over 500 navigation icons, diverse animated transitions, and perfect your layout exhaustive formatting and color controls. Rails creates perfect one page layouts, in any theme, and keeps scrolling down a single page - refreshing easy.
Rails does not hide content like an accordion or tab based container. Search engines have trouble indexing hidden content. Rails streamlines one page content design and adds a navigational list to swiftly move between sections. Keeping all content visible on a webpage is excellent for SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and allows content access with simple scroll down and swipe gestures.
Rails does not change the natural behavior of scrolling or swiping. Some websites "sense" when a user scrolls or swipes, then manually transitions to more content - it's a very controlled experience. In short, I hate this method, and will never create a product that hijacks scrolling.
Sometimes a completely one page website is not practical. If you feel a product or topic should be given it's own separate page - your probably right! It's perfectly fine to mix one-page content design into a site with multiple pages, this is a standard practice for Apple, Audi, and Ford websites - just to name a few.
