    HELP. I'm new to web creation! I'm finding the thematic theme fairly simple, but I can't seem to change the format to a single column (remove the sidebar). How do I do this?

  2. // Do not display Sidebar
    function kill_sidebar() {
    	return FALSE;
    }
    add_action('thematic_sidebar', 'kill_sidebar');

    then you'll need to change the style rules for #container and #content

    and if you arent using them then you may want to get rid of the primary and secondary widget areas

    function child_widgetized_areas($content) {
                  unset($content['Primary Aside']);
                  unset($content['Secondary Aside']);
    
                  return $content;
    }
    
    add_filter('thematic_widgetized_areas', 'child_widgetized_areas');

  4. hold your horses. the whole point of thematic is that you can use it to make child themes w/o ever modifying the core code. can i ask how you ended up here, asking a question on the forum, w/o knowing the basic premise? i know it sounds like i am being as ass, but i am really curious how people miss this, b/c this isn't the first time i've answered the question and i doubt it will be the last. i'm inclined to think that it says something about how the Themeshaper homepage isn't exactly clear on the point. the customization guide is buried in the menu and not exactly illuminating once you get there either.

    you should probably start here:
    http://www.catswhocode.com/blog/wordpress-how-to-easily-create-a-thematic-child-theme

    there is a sample child theme in the thematic.zip file, but i really like to start w/ Devin's Child Options:
    http://wptheming.com/2010/04/thematic-options-1-1-released/

    all php modifications go in your child theme's functions.php all CSS style rules go in your child theme's style.css
