I'm not sure what this is called, but when a site's navigation takes you to the relevant section on the same page that the navigation is on. Here's an example (click "Home" at the bottom): http://newcareersrevolution.com/
I have a new client who wants to work with a template that already does this. The problem is, it's an event production company offering quite a few services and quite a large portfolio they wish to display, so there's simply too much to fit on the home page.
Is it bad practice/UX to allow the nav to zoom to the relevant section, then, if appropriate, have further links on that section of the page to more in depth pages?
If not, the question then becomes, what happens to the nav/scroll aspect? My thought was to simply replace the above-the-fold content of the home page (just a big hero image and headline) with the content of the new page, and keep everything below it the same - that way retaining the nav functionality.
Can anyone think of a better solution, or is this a bad idea altogether and I should encourage the client to stick to a more conventional navigation structure?
