  • Hello

    I just can’t seem to create a static landing page without the template stuff included

    i want my site to be like this https://www.obama.org/ (only the picture to show up on the landing /home page)
    With two Call to Actions (2 buttons) leading to the respective pages.

    but all the template stuff keeps getting included and the latest string of posts etc.
    I went to customise and unticked all those stuff from being displayed but then it removes it from ALL the pages!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • How to do this would depend on what theme you’re using. But I would start by making a copy of page.php and calling it front-page.php. In this new page, remove the call to the get_sidebar() function.

    I will need to do it by manually editing the html code and download / upload with Filezilla, correct?

    where can i find the page.php file? I just checked i can only see index.php in the main folder

    Maybe your theme doesn’t have a page.php?? It should be in the main folder along with style.css and functions.php. Does the index.php have calls to get_header(), get_footer(), and get_sidebar()?
