I want to build a wordpress theme in which there is a landing page made by an image and a logo; when the logo is clicked the theme have to go to another page in which there is the navigation bar and other stuff.

Thus, the sequence is this:

  1. Landing page (image and logo);
  2. Home page (navigation bar, etc..)

My initial idea is to use the front-page.php and the home.php; is it right?

I thought splash pages died in the 90s? – helgatheviking Apr 1 '14 at 10:10
As I always say, died with the dinosaurs, good riddens, and I'm not talking about the dinosaurs – Pieter Goosen Apr 15 '14 at 10:25

1) create one template page on your page-templates dir in landingpage.php with this code


 * Template Name: Landing page
<div id="main-content" class="main-content">

    <div id="primary" class="content-area">
        <div id="content" class="site-content" role="main">
                // Start the Loop.
                while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
                </div><!-- #content -->
    </div><!-- #primary -->
</div><!-- #main-content -->

2) Add your page content with image and apply link who display on click

3) see your landing page on run time and make your css for landing page. enter image description here

Love the screenshots! What are you using to capture/annotate them? This does leave the issue of logos and other "home" links probably pointing to the static front page, though that is hardly insurmountable. – helgatheviking Apr 1 '14 at 10:38

After some research I came to conclusion that this splash screen will destroy the website SEO and the usability, so I have decided not to add this kind of page.
