Introducing Onesie, a free landing page theme for WordPress

Onesie Free WordPress Landing Page Theme

Onesie is a free WordPress theme for creating a responsive “landing page” website. If you’re looking for a simple way to build a website fast, with zero complexities, Onesie is a great option.

Onesie is very simple to use and setup and it takes just a few minutes to build a finished website. Onesie doesn’t show Posts or Pages. It doesn’t support custom menus, custom headers, sidebars or widgets. Onesie is powered by theme options and the custom background feature in WordPress.

Onesie Pro is the premium version of our free landing page theme Onesie. It offers the same pleasing landing page aesthetic but we’ve expanded its functionality to include blog posts, pages, portoflio entries and e-commerce integration through our Sell Media plugin. Onesie Pro also includes drag and drop organization that allows you to change the order of the sections on the front page without touching a single line of code. It is an out-of-the-box solution for everyone who craves a pleasantly simple portfolio that doesn’t distract and is easy to manage.

Four Sections

Onesie includes four sections:

  1. Intro – Add your logo, a custom welcome message and a custom “call to action” button.
  2. Portfolio – Add an infinite number of portfolio items on the theme options page.
  3. About – Add a little text that introduces you to your site visitors.
  4. Contact – Add your contact info.

Onesie WordPress theme

What’s Included

  • Custom Background image support.
  • Robust theme options page for adding content to the landing page.
  • Add infinite Portfolio entries on the theme options page.
  • Aside from the Intro section, all other sections are optional (portfolio, about, contact). This means you could just use it to show the site title, description and call to action button.

What’s Not Included

This is a one page landing page theme as mentioned in the description above. Thus, it doesn’t contain any templates for showing Posts or Pages. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be a landing page theme after all, now would it? So here is what you cannot do with this theme:

  • You cannot show Posts or Pages
  • You cannot create Menus. The menu is automatically created for you based on the options that you will fill in on the Theme Options page.
  • You cannot create a Sidebar.
  • You cannot add Widgets.
  • You cannot add a custom header image (although you can insert a logo on the Theme Options page).

  1. Hi Thad,

    Looks interesting from the screenshots, but how do I view the demo on my iPad?

    The mobile previewer makes it impossible for those on real mobile devices to see the theme.

  2. Looks like an easy way to get a landing page up. I am also getting the $299 option only though I am logged in. Weird issue.

        1. Coupons are used for applying discounts on paid products. This is free and only requires a free account.

  3. I’d be interested in using this as a music website. What I’m seeing is a grid of thumbnails and song titles. Click on one and a music player shows and plays automatically. Close the music player and the grid populates again. Or, click on song title from grid and a larger window opens with a music player. Click play on that player to hear music. Close this window and the grid returns. First would be more elegant, of course. Would you be willing to modify this theme, or can it already work of the above two ways? You can email me at [email protected]. I’m a previous subscription customer of yours.

  4. nice theme! the large ‘download resume’ spills out of the column in mobile, you should potentially give it relative font size (em/rem) and white-space it to initial since long button name also spills out.

    so on .big-btn:
    font-size: 1em;
    white-space: initial;

    solves it.

    anyhow its very cool! thanks!

      1. this was my question. I haven’t tried this theme yet because I was worried about its appearance on mobile. the button seems to large. has it been fixed?
        was also wondering, and I saw some people were able to do this, if you could make a dark bar behind the nav because its difficult to read over the top of other elements.

    1. Google will index any keywords and content that you add on the homepage. Sprinkle some good keywords in the intro and about sections and Google will pick those up just fine. It will not index specific project pages, since technically they are all listed on the homepage.

      1. Thanks for your explanation! But technically those specific project pages exist? I mean, to add new projects you have to create new pages or is something like a gallery?

        In the other hand, it would be possible to show a different url in the address bar to each project? Something like that:
        http://demo.graphpaperpress.com/onesie/#project1

        It would be great to send a link to someone showing a specific project.

        Thanks for your feedback!

  5. Hi Thad, I’ve just used your Onesie theme for my website. I’m using it like a portfolio and not like a landing page. I like it because it was easy to setup. I added some CSS to change the text and the hyperlinks in black. I removed the background too, and used the button link for my Facebook profile: http://www.fabbbio.com

    I hope you like it.

    Merry Christmas!
    Fabio

    1. hi fabbio, can you share the new template you used with black font? I’d like to use something similar for my site. Thanks!

      1. Yeah, these guys don’t seem to have an answer for me so I got some help from a developer who cared enough to look through the source code and help me out. He discovered a piece of code that is wrong (as far as I understood – in the theme it self)

        Go to the theme’s index.php file and change the “large” part in this code to “thumbnail”.

        Like I said, I needed to get help from him so if this doesn’t help, i can’t help you further…

        1. How did you make not squared thumbnails? I’ve tried what you wrote here but my thumbnails are 150x150px :/

        2. Well, that part is actually provided by Graphpaperpress. You have to change the media sizes first.

          Go to Settings > Media

          Set the thumnails size to 600 wide by 400 tall and check the crop option so thumbnails are cropped to those exact dimensions.

          Set the medium size to 900 max width and set max height to 0 (no max height).

          Set the large size to 1600 max width and set max height to 0 (no max height).

          When you are done you need to regenerate thumbnails to get it to work. Use any plugin..

  6. Thanks for the great theme! I am using it as a wedding photography portfolio to hopefully “land” new clients.

    http://www.joygabaphoto.com

    I didn’t want to caption my photos so I just removed the whitespace in the stylesheet when the images are untitled and uncaptioned. It would be nice for there not to be a white tab in those situations. Also, I would love for it to have built-in dedicated social media link buttons which I’m going to attempt to put in place of the single link button. For now, I’m using the single link button for my facebook page.

  7. Hi,

    I have a problem…
    In portfolio – links to web page got mixed up?!?

    The link of second image in on first, on second image is correct link, on third also good, of fourth for the fifth….

    Help please?

  8. I installed Onesie, but the preview gives me a white page and activating the theme gives me the same error: white page of death!

      1. Hey girls! Go to Appearance/Customize/Theme Options and add this on the custom CSS box:

        .btn-translucent { /*This is for the button in normal state*/ }
        .btn-translucent:hover { /*This is for when the mouse hovers the button*/ }
        .btn-translucent:visited { /*This is for when the button has been clicked*/ }
        .btn-translucent:active { /*This is for when the link is active*/ }

        Hope it helps 🙂

  9. I used it as a temporary website for my photography page. You can check it here http://www.ahphoto.pt/
    I’m having trouble with the thumbnails, they don’t crop correctly, so I can only use pictures in landscape mode.
    Also I don’t know if there is a way to rearrange the order of the images without having to reupload them all again.

    1. You can reorganize them by editing the gallery (click on the gallery icon in the post editor). Did you figure your thumbnail issue out? They look great to me.

      1. What about uploading more images? If I use the Portfolio tab in Theme Options, it deletes everything and I have to upload all the images again, I can’t add new images without losing the other ones.

        1. This is driving me crazy! And to arrange the photos in an order you want to have them shown it seems you have to click on them in the order you want them on the page. It’s tough with 50 images!

    2. How did you manage to get the button on the front page to scroll down to the gallery? I’ve been trying to figure it out for a while without getting anywhere. Any pointers would be great, thanks.

  10. I installes the onesie theme. love it. but I cannot seme to get the menu/sections right. I dont see them anywhere. what am i doing wrong?

  11. My menu section isn’t showing. I see I can’t create a custom menu, but I don’t even see the automatic one… help!

  12. Is there a way to remove the top “page” (with the headline/message/button) and have the page start with the portfolio? Second question, is there a way to modify/remove the “Portfolio” text? Thanks for your help.

  13. I love the design and using it now on my personal website http://seeliger.cc – but I feel that it makes the website a little bit slower. Can that be or is it just because of my bad internet connection?

  14. Loving the theme. Is it possible to instead of my header image linking back to the site to make it create an email message?

  15. Is there a way to set up separate pages but without a menu? So that the only way to bring up one of the other pages is if you have /address?

  16. Hey I love the theme however, once activated I get the White Screen of Death. I cannot log in to admin to change anything and going to the site has a white screen as well. I uninstalled WordPress and installed fresh. Doing so solved the problem but I’d like to use this theme. I’ve had similar issues with a few other themes when doing a live preview so I never activated it.

    So, what’s the fix? Thanks

      1. maybe you should see the other comments, being free is not enough if there are so many bugs and difficulties to change anything

  17. I’ve been trying to figure it out for a while without getting anywhere. Any pointers would be great, thanks.
