    I have the Grisaille theme. On my first page which is a static welcome page I would like to only have one column. Is there a way to do this?

  2. The best way to do this, would be to
    1. make a child theme
    2. create a new template called front-page.php which would have the same code as page.php, but minus the sidebar.
    3. create new css to adjust the width of the main column on your homepage

    Thanks for your reply Christine. I did number one by creating a child theme. Number two is a little more difficult as I am a newbie on WordPress.org. Is there a tutorial on this?

    Christine,
    I found out what code I need to modify on the parent Grisaille theme to get rid of the side bar on the main page and widen the main text area with Firebug.

    My question is- how much of the code do I need to take? If I grab
    width: 900px
    and just paste it in the style.css sheet of my child theme, it doesn't seem there is enough information.
