Top 15 Best One-Page WordPress Themes NOT on ThemeForest (2018)

One-page web design (also known as ‘single page web design’) is a great way to create a user-friendly website that works equally well on all devices. And, while it may have been out of vogue ten years or so ago, it’s made a roaring comeback and is now a staple for everyone from startups to creative agencies.

In this post, we’re going to look at some of the best one-page WordPress themes that aren’t listed at ThemeForest.

Why Not ThemeForest?

Well, mainly because we’ve already covered the best one-page themes on ThemeForest, so now we need to give some love to the independent developers!

Of course, we’ve absolutely nothing against ThemeForest — there are just a ton of great theme developers who simply don’t sell their themes on ThemeForest. So, if you limit your search to just ThemeForest themes, you’re almost certainly missing out on some great options listed elsewhere.

Without further ado, here are our top 15 picks for the best one-page WordPress themes that you won’t find on ThemeForest.

1. Parallax Pro

Parallax Pro is a child theme for the popular Genesis Framework from StudioPress. It gives you a stunning one-page design with distinct sections that pull readers down the page. The parallax effect, after which the theme is named, keeps things interesting.

Parallax Pro also uses the native WordPress Customizer for easy, code-free changes, while everything is responsive by default.

Finally, the fact that you have the Genesis Framework powering your theme’s core functionality means your site is going to have stellar performance, as well as good SEO optimization.

2. Zerif Pro

The Pro version of one of the more popular free themes at WordPress.org, Zerif Pro offers a flexible, parallax scrolling one-page design that’s easy to make your own.

Zerif Pro from Themeisle

The theme uses distinct sections to power your one-page design, which you can mix-and-match to meet your needs. What’s nice is that these sections are powered by the native WordPress Customizer, so you can see each change you make in real-time.

Zerif Pro is also WooCommerce ready, and built to integrate with popular WordPress page builder plugins.
