I'm using WordPress as my CMS and also as a blog. I'd like to drive PPC traffic to my site and my question is about landing pages.
I'd like to be able to remove the navigation on selected pages, my landing pages. For example, if I make a page about toy trains that I sell with the goal of getting people to purchase from the page, I'd like the people seeing that page not to have any navigation options. That way, my PPC campaign doesn't bleed traffic into the rest of my site; i'll just have visitors either converting or going back.
But for the rest of my pages and posts, I'd like the navigation to show up as usual.
A secondary question I have (please answer the above first if you answer either of these) is about modifying the template of individual pages. Again, if I make landing pages, I'd like to be able to modify the template to make the text column wider, add certain elements mini sidebars and boxes etc. How can I do that for one page and not screw up the rest of my blog/site's template?
