SONNY / One page website

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am all new to Squarespace and I am French so sorry if my sentences aren't clear... I'll try to explain as much as I can.

I am still in the free time period so I'm not sure you'll be able to access my website.

Anyway, I downloaded the template "Sonny", and I want to do a one page only website, with links in the navigation bar leading to the different posts of this one page. .Here is a perfect example of what I'd like to do, I believe this is a squareplace website https://www.asgeirmusic.com/

So as you can see clicking the link just below, this one page (home page I guess) will include several posts following each other by scrolling down : home, about, news (being a dispatch of summaries of articles leading to separate pages this time, I won't put every articles on this home page, only my main navigation).

My problem is, and I tried with different templates it seems to be the same problem, that when I add a new page or button in my main navigation, it automatically creates a completely seperated new page, when I want it on the home page so I can just scroll down to access it. And if I add a new page/button in the hierarchy of my home page, it will create a new post on this home page, just like I want it, but it won't appear in the navigation bar ...

For example, I created a home page called "home" on which you immediately arrive when you click on the link of the website. I tried to add an "About" page, which I want it to appear on the home page by scrolling down BUT I also want an "About" link to appear in the navigation bar, so that when you click this button in the navigation bar, it leads you to this "about" section of the home page.

Will I be able to do this with a "personnal" subscribtion? I know i cannot modify code with this subscribtion ....

I am not sure everything is clear, but do not hesitate to ask me if something's not understandable ! To sum up everything, I would like to create a website like this one https://www.asgeirmusic.com/, but can't seem to have navigation links leading to different sections of the home page ...

 

Thank you everyone in advance for your help! And again, I am all new to this and still on the free trial period ...

The reason is that templates like Brine, and the 7.1 multiple design template use an index page, which makes all the pages in that index scroll like one page but those pages do not show up on the nav bar. So folks who still want nav links, put a link to all the pages in the nav bar and those links are anchored to the various pages so you can have the best of both, scrolling and menu selecting. Here are the 7.0 templates that can do what you want and how to set up the anchor points:
