OK, I forgot to add how to apply the template to a page.
Go into your page editor to edit your static page. If you scroll down on the right, you'll see a section called Virtual Template. From the drop-down, you should be able to see the custom template that you just created. Select it and click the Update button.
Some other notes:
One other difference that you will see between the custom template that I created and the default page template is I took out this code which creates the sidebar so that there would be more room for the blog entries:
<div id="widgetarea-one" class="col4">
<?php dynamic_sidebar( 'Widget Area ONE' ); ?>
One of the strengths of Montezuma is that it allows you to create widget areas wherever you need/want. The default setup for the theme has a widget area in a right sidebar, but you can create a widget area in the header, footer, create a sidebar on the left, etc. Another advantage of the theme is that you can create virtual templates like this one, so if you have a page where you don't need a sidebar because you need more space for the content, you can create a custom template just for that page (or similar pages).
Note also that the widget area that was taken out had a class assigned to it of col4. Montezuma's responsiveness is based on a 12-column grid system. The entire width of the content area is divided up into 12 columns. For a 960px layout, a column is therefore 80px wide (960px/12). You can read about it in Appearance > Montezuma Options > CSS Settings, but the important thing to remember is that when laying out the elements that go across in a "row", the column classes should add up to 12 for the responsiveness to work correctly. In the default page template (as well as the index and single templates), the content area has a class of col8, which would be 640px wide, while the sidebar has a class assigned to it of col4, which would make it 320px wide. So if you wanted to adjust the width of different areas on the page, you do it by assigning different class names in the format col#, making sure that the elements in a row add up to 12.
So because I took out the sidebar, which had a class of col4, I changed the class of the content area from col8 to col12.
