    hello,

    my customer wants an new website, but wants to stick to the one page layout he currently has.
    i was thinking about a page with two parts, the text part, and a sidebar on the right with contact info etc. (like the sidebar template in Twentyeleven)
    should i use this theme and "remove" the blog page? or do you guys know another theme?

    please reply, thank you very much!!

    I don't think it matters what theme you use, just use one with a sidebar.

    You don't need to 'remove' the blog page. Just don't publish any posts and don't put any blog oriented widgets in the sidebar (archives, categories, recent posts, calendar...). Then add the Text Widget to the sidebar and add the contact info.

    thanks you for your answer.
    lets say i use twentyeleven with the sidebar template.
    then i have a nav bar on top, below my header, i need that gone.
    also i need to set the "index" page to my created page, cause standard that is the blog page right? (the first page u see when you go to a site)
    so i need to hide the blog page somehow right??

    thanks!

    You can hide anything by display:none to css or remove css by creating a new child theme. Also, under "Reading" option, you can select "Front Page".

    Your needs are morphing!

    No, you do not need to hide the blog page. You need to add a new page, name it Home, or Welcome or whatever....

    Publish your new page. Head over to Settings=>>Reading and choose Static Page then select your new page from the drop down; VOIALA!

    I don't get the menu removal part. You can edit the header and take out the menu code, edit the css and set the menu div to display: none;

    You can create a template page that has the menu (or not) just how you like it. Google WordPress page templates

    cant seem to find it, thanks

    nevermind i found it, add this to your stylesheet css:
    #access {
    display: none;
    }
