    I have tried to change the template of a single page on my site to the Full Width template. For some reason, it still shows up as "3c-r-fixed". Can somebody help me figure out what's going on? The page of my site which is supposed to be changed is this:

    The truth is, I only want it to have the secondary sidebar on the right. Not the primary sidebar. I don't actually want to remove both sidebars, if at all possible.

    By the way, I have tried out a whole ton of themes, and I must say, I prefer building from a framework by far. And also, I tried all the frameworks on the official WordPress site's list, and Thematic is the best by far. Through thematic, I was able to build a really flexible and attractive semi-fluid site. Thematic rocks!

  2. are you sure that is a wordpress "page"?

    are you sure that you have enabled thematic-compatible dynamic body classes?

    i ask both, b/c this is the body class for the page you've linked to:

    forum-archive forum bbPress windows chrome ch

    even w/o thematic that should be showing page-template or something similar i think, which makes me think that it isn't a page in the first place.

    It's a page.

    It's the first page in the page order too. Everything on the page except the forums, which is inside #content, is created either by thematic or my thematic child theme. The page you see is not a bbpress-forum-only page.

    What are thematic-compatible dynamic body classes? If it means anything, I am using a child style.css, which I created myself, starting with the example files that came with the theme download.

  4. thematic-compatible body classes mean you put this in your functions.php:

    //Thematic compatible

    or at least that first one. basically, thematic couldn't pass theme review w/ its classes, so it uses WP classes by default lets you switch to the more advanced ones w/ this bit o' code.

    ok, so it is a page, but it isn't displaying as a regular page, b/c of what i said in my last post about the body classes. my guess is that however you are implementing bbpress is overriding the default "page" behavior.

    Alright, somehow I got it working by deactivating and reactivating my few plugins, one by one. I'm not sure how it worked. I did already have thematic-compatible body classes. Also, the full width template DID work, but not on that one particular page. I'm not sure which other pages it wouldn't have worked on. I do know that the page it didn't work on was a first-level page, and the page it did work on was a sub page.

  6. did you have a bbpress plugin of some sort?

    If you're using the bbPress plugin for WordPress, remember that it uses page.php as the template.

    I haven't figured out a way of forcing the full width template.

    According to bbPress, it's not supposed to work with the full page width template.
