I'm now using the Omega theme; no child theme yet.
The above code removes the header from every page, but what I wanted was to be able to create a unique home page without header or nav, leaving all other pages with their header/nav styling.
This theme doesn't seem to give any page template options, is that right?
So even if I created a new page template that doesn't include the "get header" function, I wouldn't have the option to choose this new page template in the wp page creation interface, correct?
But you do have different layout templates available for posts??
Thanks for your response.
