    I don’t want paralax, I don’t want scrolling images, etc etc.

    Literally all I want is

    (a) a background image
    (b) a text area in the center of the page (happy for this to be a post, page, widget or w/e)
    (c) a one-field form below the text area to collect email addresses

    I have tried so many different one page themes but none of them seem to work. I tried the landing page plugin but the templates which would work for me are premium. I have created complex websites through WP before yet I just cannot seem to create a simple landing page with just three elements.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    You’ll need to create a page template for that. If you want to hide footer and header then you’ll have to get more involved there as well. I suggest using Contact Form 7 for your form or Aweber. Depends on what you need it for.

    Read this article for more information

    I’d also suggest creating a child theme from the 2019 theme if you plan on using it as a theme.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have succeeded in creating what I wanted using:

    – BG image plugin
    – Posts page as home page (with one post)
    – Custom CSS to adjust post position, adjust line spacing, and remove links from post header and site logo
    – Remove meta data plugin
    – WP Forms for form submission

    This has been easier for me as I do not really know much about creating templates or child themes, amending themes etc. Sharing in case it helps anyone else.

    Best wishes
