Possible to create a widget-only page? (7 posts)

    I'm new to wordpress.... I'm building a blog, and and I'd like to create a secondary page that pulls feeds from selected sites. The RSS widget works fine, but my theme (currently iNove) keeps all widgets in the sidebar. This appears to be pretty standard.

    Is there a way to create a page which contains only widgets (not just limited to the edges). Or can you think of another way to solve this?

    Thanks!

    Well, you could create a page made up entirely of sidebars. Say you wanted 4 blocks on your home page. List each block as a sidebar in your functions file, and put the dynamic sidebar code into each block. That is how I would do it.

    Hi,
    I also want to do this. Can you give a little detailed instructions as to blocks in a page? When you say functions file, which files, the functions.php? I really need to do this, so please help.

    I can't give you a css lesson here, it's a bit more complicated than that. Say you have a layout with 4 divs two in each row. Each one of those divs can be made into a sidebar. Find a CSS layout that you like, then read about dynamic sidebars in the DOCS section.

    You can slso use custom fields to some extent. I've recently been playing around with theme options and they are really awesome.

    Keep reading, keep asking questions - it will come to you!

    This is a great plugin that should do what you want.

    Brandondove, thanks for the reply. But the question is how do I get that feed generaged from feedwordpress into specific page I created? In other words, I would like the page to display the feeds items, not just links to the websites? Is there any specific step by step instructions?
