I'm hoping someone is able to recommend a "user friendly" solution to my query.
My website is http://www.veronicacolvin.com
At the moment, my site is focused on what I do for a living - Hair, Make-Up and FX Artist.
I'm starting to get more active with my painting and sculpting.
I would like to create a landing page that sits on top of the current home page - and that it gives visitors two options - i.e. - to either click on:
Hair, Make-Up and FX Artist - (redirects to the current Home page - http://veronicacolvin.com/)
Artist - Painter & Sculpture - (redirects to a Painting/Sculpting page - http://veronicacolvin.com/paintings_and_sculptings/)
I've had a quick look at Landing Page plugins, but can't seem to find something simple that will do the above i.e. a clean theme, with a boxed section on the left with Hair, Make-Up and FX Artist - and a box on the right hand side with Artist - Painter and Sculpture (or something to that effect!).
This is going to be a little more difficult than you think at this point. The default home page for Modern Portfolio Pro is widgetized, meaning that the content is added through widgets. The widgetized home page uses a special template named front-page.php. It is automatically loaded via the WordPress built-in template hierarchy rules when a user accesses your domain.
You want to replace this page with a portal-type page that can branch users to different parts of the site. You can certainly use a static home page to do this, but you will lose access to the current home page unless you convert front-page.php into a standard page template and create a normal page to display it.
Once you change the url to point to the redirect page, the redirect page will become your new home page. Maybe someone else has an idea how you can do this more easily, but if I were you, I would figure out how to either highlight the new offerings on the current home page or bring up a new site just for the art.
Thank you Victor for getting back to me.
When you say "bring up a new site just for the art" - do you mean a new site with a new URL?
Thanks for the feedback Victor.
