What WordPress theme should I use for a website with many pages?

Saumyakanta S August 30, 2013

I’m planning to convert my website to wordpress format, but my website contains many pages, so far I’ve seen themes which display posts instead of pages . So what are the themes that can view many pages like posts ?

    The best ones I have come across personally are GhostPool (link below). They have a few really well designed themes and most of the support mega-menu's. Apart from them I would be searching Google for WordPress themes that support mega menu's. There's no real point in me doing that when you can do it yourself. :-)

    You wouldn't normally link to all 75 pages from within the main navigation menu (plus that is a lot of pages). You would usually link from page to page like breadcrumbs. However, if you do need to link to all 75 pages from within the same navigation menu then I would recommend using sub-menu's. Or better still, get a theme that supports "mega menu's" where you can make really large menu's for a lot of pages within you navigation.

    Pretty much all WordPress themes can support as many pages as you need. WordPress was designed around blogs, so by default a lot of WordPress sites are blogs and therefore their posts are there homepage usually. However, this can easily be changed so that any page can be your homepage instead of your posts. You can then set a different page for your blog posts through the WordPress reading settings.

    You can then use the menu editor (very simple to use) to setup a navigation menu for your multiple pages extremely easily. So to answer your question specifically, pretty much any WordPress theme can be used for a page centric website as well as a post centric site. I'd stay away from single page themes though as this wouldn't be much good for you.

    Just to show you how page centric WordPress sites would work (and how different they can look) here are a couple of page centric WordPress sites that I have designed:


    My personal website is a single page site, so here is a link to that so you can see how they work differently to a "normal" site:


    Hope this helps you. On a side note, I personally think that Theme Forest are by far the best suppliers of WordPress themes.

    Good luck! :-)

      thank you for the answer . I'll try those themes , but I have nearly 75 pages . so most of the themes can show 5-10 pages on their bar , but after that it looks messy ,
