[resolved] Is it possible to have blank WP pages? (5 posts)

    Hi

    I would like to have a mini sales page (or squeeze page, but with links) just to advertise my free newsletter, and although there will be links to the rest of my WP site, I don't want ads or any of the panels that the other pages have.

    Is this possible within WordPress?

    Thank you

    Thanks for your help, but the info assumes the reader knows how to create a file:


    "To create a new Custom Page Template for a Page you must create a file."

    Sorry, but is this within WP or on my PC to upload via FTP?

    If in WP, how do I create a file please? I cannot see such an option in my WP-admin.

    And if on my PC via FTP, then am I right in saying it won't be part of the WP site? (which I want it to be).

    Sorry if I've got that wrong.

    Thanks

    On your PC using a plain text editor. Download a copy of your current page.php file, give it a new name (eg: sales.php) and then start editing it as per the instructions.

    Once completed, upload the new page to your current theme folder within wp-content/themes. The new template will then become available in the Template dropdown of the Attributes tab in your Edit/Add New Page area.

    Hi thank you.

    I was struggling a bit, but I found some video tutorials on YouTube that I found easier to follow than the text, but now I know how to do it, I see the text is simple after all.

    Thanks again.
