Creating Static Home Page w/no sidebar, categories/archives (2 posts)

    I'm trying to create a home page for my site (currently http://www.coolpillows.com) that will be a static page. As explained in this helpful article I found thanks to this forum:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    The home page I'm envisioning wouldn't have "Categories" and "Archives" over there on the left column. I'm using Atahualpa as my theme and this may be a question for that theme's settings. There is a whole admin interface for controlling the CSS for the theme and I believe I can turn off anything occurring in the left-hand column.

    But I'm trying to understand if got this right. I've created a static page, currently called "Home." And conceivably, the "Blog" page and others could sit under this home page, with different layouts. How might I implement this?

    Thanks in advance all!

    Hope this makes sense.

    You just need to create a new page template, and use that page template on your static home page.

    If you don't want the same widgets on the homepage, you can use a different sidebar with that custom page template, or remove the sidebar completely.
