Twenty Ten: Hide widgets on main page (13 posts)

    Hi all,

    I've managed to hide the widgets on the other pages by changing the template layout to one column, but cannot figure out how to do the same on the main page. I don't want any sidebar widgets at all on my site, as it's meant to serve as a web site and not a blog site for now.

    Thanks!

    You can do that using custom post template I have a article and video on my website on how to set one one up so you will have same option like you have for pages.

    See Creating_a_Static_Front_Page. Use the same template for the Home page as you did for the other pages.

    That doesn't sound like a posts page for the front page to me...

    I created the static front page, but I'm getting Leave a Reply fields, which I don't want either:

    I created one page, not two, and called it About Us.

    Wait, I just got it to behave;) Unfortunately, the page menu bar link is still called Home, but I can live with that:)

    Thanks people!

    Looks like you using About page as front page if you want that to be Home then create a Home Page and use that as Front Page.

    No, I want the About Page to be the About Page. I want to get rid of the word Home everywhere completely.

    Then use About page as front page in Settings General

    I don't see that option under General Settings, only under Reading Settings, and I already did that as Esmi indicated.

    I see you using a twenty ten theme so you can create a Custom Menu by clicking on
    Appearance>>>Menus and change your header labels from there so change Home to About Us then you will not have Home as Title of page.
