I know this topic has been covered to death, so I apologize if seeing one more about it is like sharp stick to the eye.
I have read the post on creating a full-width template here: http://wptheming.com/2010/03/custom-page-templates-thematic and I "get" it. I'm confused on how to do this for other types of layouts. I know that thematic has several CSS layout styles. How could I call those layouts into different page templates? I'm probably over thinking this.
I've tried creating page templates that call the different css styles and I haven't gotten it to work. Any pointers are greatly appreciated. I'm going to do some push ups and karate stick fighing in the meantime. Brb. =)
