    So I am using the theme OceanBeach (http://www.skinpress.com/ocean-beach/) and im trying to remove the sidebar from just one of my pages. I have put the following code into my header that points to a new stylesheet but I cant seem to actually get rid of the sidebar. What am I forgetting?

    <?php if ( is_page(array('3','103','471')) ) { ?>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/no_sidebar_style.css" />
    <?php } else { ?>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <?php } ?>

    I removed all items in the new stylesheet that pertains to the sidebar, but cant seem to get rid of it. Here is a before and after the changes I made to the code:

    <img src="http://i230.photobucket.com/albums/ee187/codeblue2k/WordpressImage2-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    <img src="http://i230.photobucket.com/albums/ee187/codeblue2k/WordpressImage-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    Is there some other place that the actual sidebar is called? I did this on another website and all that I remember doing was what I did above. Please help :) thanks!!

    are you sure you don't have one of those set up as a widget?
    admin - appearance - widgets

    Samboll - One of what? The stylesheet? Ive done nothing to the code of the theme besides whats stated above.

    Here is what the new style sheet looks like. About half way down you can see where the code was for the side bar, between /* sidebar*/ and /* end sidebar*/

    Theme Name: OceanBech
    Theme URI: http://www.askgraphics.com/
    Description: Widget ready theme with two sidebars.
    Version: 1.0
    Author: AskGraphics.com
    Author URI: http://www.askgraphics.com/

    [huge chunk of code moderated - please use a pastebin]

    no - you have 2 meta's in the sidebar
    I think your problem may be you are trying to use widgets and edit code - you may be outwitting yourself.
    you can do both but must do it in the correct locations
    just look at your widgets - if that's not it we can move on

    I looked in admin - appearance - widgets as you suggested and I no longer have any widgets assigned to any of the sidebars. Issue still seems to be sticking around.

    I also looked thru the rest of the files in me theme and still cant seem to find where the sidebar is being loaded.

    I figured it out!!

    Instead of just deleting the sidebar section from my new CSS I replaced it with

    #sidebar { display:none;}

    Worked like a charm
