the page structure is pretty rigid in 7.1, but you could do something like this

  • have all your main pages as "not linked" so that there's no navigation at the top
  • add in a section at the top of your page for Navigation and add links to your sections using text elements.
  • When you put in where you want the links to go, use "#" and then give a name for each section. e.g. "#about" "#prices"
  • Then go to each section and insert a code block and put in HTML of <a id="#about"></a> or whatever your page is called.

that should get you started. you might need to tidy it up with some css, but mostly that will get you what you want. e.g. you want to get rid of the site header competely by adding some css to hide it like "header { display:none !important".

As usual with these things, I think its better to try to work with the templates not against them if you can, it will make it much easier to maintain in the long run...
