I am creating a one page portfolio website with WordPress and seem to have run into a couple of snags and could use some advice/a shove in the right direction.
What is the best way to go about pulling in template files or page content into my index.php? Or should I create a separate template and call in the different pages?
I have my index.php pulling in page contents from other pages using the 'Embed a Page Inside a Page' but it seems to have some limitations in regards to what is actually pulled in - for example, another instance of my navigation menu within each page template does not come through, only the the_content(); and the_title(); - probably excerpt too, haven't tried it with a 'Featured Image' either.
Is there a better way to do this? I'm going out on a limb just trying it and haven't had experience with it before so I can imagine there are other ways of doing it. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
