Full Width Page Template for Feature Site

  1. I am using the Feature Site Thematic child theme, and I was wondering if it's possible to use a full width template for a page, rather than a normal side-by-side (content / sidebar).

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Yes - (well "I expect it would work" with other Thematic siblings.)

    I have one basically done and working, I need to write it up so I can ask a coherent question which will lead to the answer of "Did I screw up the normal page with my CSS or my hacked code?". (I have a problem with some browsers now on the default page {with sidebar} -- so likely CSS)

    That was the reason I came here tonight. research...

    (not my approach, but they may know more than I --- not too hard there LOL but the CSS sures looks familiar)

    I expect to get on that Weds. or Thurs.

    Cheers

    Well I do have the 'wide format page' done and working correctly, I had a broken tag that soem browsers forgave, and others didn't. I am now sorting it all out into 'doable' parts, as I have many modifications in my theme.

    The parts are:
    A function in sidebar_extensions
    A page template
    A wide-content CSS fix.

    I need to break up all the parts, so I don't introduce problems from ny other fixes.

    NOW - I have to find out how to localize (language) my Navigation gizmo (it may become a plug-in). :shock:

  4. i dont know about the Feature site specifically, but for thematic in general this is a good tut on templates

    and covers creating a fullpage template. you can also do a similar thing for posts if you install the Custom Post Template plugin.

  5. The Feature site theme already comes with a full-width template, front-page.php.

    You can just rip out the front-block stuff Ian put in there and you've got yourself pretty much a ready to go full-width page template.
