[resolved] Full Width Page Template Issue (4 posts)

    Ok guys, hopefully someone smarter than me can figure this out. I've spent the last couple of days reading at least a dozen related threads and nothing I have tried has worked. Here's the issue...
    I'm using the zeebizzcard theme, with a child theme. What I want to do is set up a custom page template with a wider content area. It doesn't exactly have to be full width or lose the sidebar, but it's ok if it is. I just want the content area wider to fit a flash game in.
    As of right now I have created a page template by copying page.php and removing the sidebar(since nothing else was working). I have tried editing and adding new css but nothing has worked.
    Here's the code for my custom template:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: fullwidth
    */
    ?>
    
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div id="content">
    
    		<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    			<div id="page-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    
    				<h2 class="page-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    				<?php edit_post_link(__( 'Edit', 'themezee_lang' )); ?>
    
    				<div class="entry">
    					<?php the_content(); ?>
    					<div class="clear"></div>
    					<?php wp_link_pages(); ?>
    				</div>
    
    			</div>
    
    		<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<?php comments_template(); ?>
    
    	</div>
    
    	<?php get_footer(); ?>

    and here's the link to the page in question: jasoncarnrike.com/jigsaw-puzzle

    Nothing I do to the "content" div in css changes the page at all. I (at separate times)created a new "content2" div and a content.fullwidth class, added them to the template and they also did nothing. I am clearly missing something. I've tried so many offered solutions, I couldn't even list them here. Can anyone help me with this or at least point me in the right direction? Thanks!

    What you are missing is... including header.php from theme wraps the page content into a 520px wide box(.wrap class) ..so even if you remove sidebar it doesn't take that area.

    Let me give solution using css..

    .page-id-1422 #wrap {
    width: 920px;
    }
    .page-id-1422 #navi {
    width: 100%;
    }
    .page-id-1422 #headwrap {
    display: none;
    }
    .page-id-1422 #sidewrap {
    display: none;
    }

    which applies to only that page with id 1422.

    For theme specific support post here, so that it will also be helpful for other theme users.

    Hi - I've created two pages recently and have selected Full Width Page (No Sidebar). Unfortunately, when I either preview or publish the new pages, information that I don't want to appear shows up. Example: " Posted on June 28, 2013 by Flapjack — No Comments ↓ " shows up and a Comments Section also appears at the bottom of the page. I'd not had this problem when I first created the site and those pages I previously created aren't exhibiting this issue. I thought the problem might be because it's a child page, but when I just tried to create a new page which will appear in the menu as a parent page, I ran into the same issue. What do I need to do to solve this issue? My website is http://theadventuresofflapjack.com

    This issue is showing up on http://theadventuresofflapjack.com/about-the-author/interviews-with-dan-and-flap/

    Please please help!

    Thanks so much!
