Though Semplice is primarily designed for portfolio building, it is possible to use it to build a other website. We have quite a few customers who use it for this purpose. Some of them use custom code to meet their needs and others build their sites with native Semplice features.
Find examples of non-portfolio sites built with Semplice, visit our Showcase and use the filter at the top.
That said, we recommend finding another solution if your site needs complex functionality or advanced blogging features. Semplice does not offer a sub-navigation system, so the need for a more advanced navigation system will not be met with Semplice without heavy modifications. If you choose Semplice for non-portfolio purposes, we generally recommend using it for a basic informational or marketing website.
