Introduction

This One Page Author Website is a WordPress design.

A one pager is just that, a single page website with no additional pages. With a single page website there are no separate pages. All of your content will be on the same single page and the reader’s will scroll down the layout to view more of the content.

A single page website will only show your readers the perfect amount of information. Everything is organized and you can promote a new book, or a sale. Reader’s can navigate easily. Collect subscribers and it’s easier to optimize your website for mobile devices.

You will receive up to five sections:

  1. Home
  2. Author
  3. Books
  4. Blog
  5. Newsletter

This theme is built on WordPress 5.6 and requires the Avada Theme to be customized.

Web Host

If you already have a web host, then please ignore this section. If not, then read on.

Our websites are of high quality and they need a good host to match. A host that won’t slow down your site or give you error messages.

Cheap or free web hosts ALWAYS give problems and headaches.

I recommend:

  1. SiteGround
  2. BlueHost
  3. WP Engine

Install WordPress

Whichever host that you decide on, there should be an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to install ‘WordPress’. Every web host is different, and you may need to browse your web host or contact them to figure it out.

Even better Google: ‘How to install WordPress on (name host).’

Tutorials for the following web hosts:

  1. Siteground
  2. Bluehost
