A year or two ago a trend started to appear where a web site would be created with only one page. This one page contained various sections, such as â€œhomeâ€, â€œservicesâ€, and â€œcontact usâ€, and the menu at the top links to these various sections rather than to a separate page as might be the case with a more â€œtraditionalâ€ web site.
One of the advantages of this type of site is that particularly when using a mobile phone to browse the site, the user only has to scroll down the page to find all the content on the site.
They do have disadvantages:
Until recently I felt the disadvantages out weighed the advantages. However recently we had a new client, PostRoomPlus Isle of Wight who needed a very simple site, and there really were not many details we could incorporate into the site. It could have had a home page, a services page and a contact page, but there would not have been much information on each of these pages. A decision was made to use a one page site design, and we are pleased with the results.
