    Dear Friends,
    (WordPress 2.7) I'm a rookie! Please can someone tell me how to create a new page that does NOT have a post area on it. I simply want to create an "About Me" page with just a list of my credentials etc.. BUT NOT IN A POST FORMAT. ????? I'm wondering if this may be a code related question.. My about me page is on my site now but not the way I want it to look. You can see it at http://www.redzoneradon.com Thanks

    So you would prefer it to not have the formatting on the sides? Would yo ulike it to display as a stand alone page?

    I think that is to do with the coding, and editing the sidebar.php, or yourpage.php.

    Not sure to be honest.

    EF,
    If i could figure out both that would be nifty. i've already tweaked the code in the templates to get my banner to work, so i can handle code manipulation. Do you think maybe if i deleted the posting template(?) that it would just go away without causing any shock waves?

    Unless I have misunderstood your question - you have answered it yourself - create a PAGE not a POST in WP

    to do it outside of WP is a bit more involved but not difficult. The easiest way is to create a PHP page and add this to the top

    /* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
     *
     * @var bool
     */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);
    
    /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
    require('../wordpress/wp-blog-header.php');

    you will need to adjust that path in the require call above to match the location of your wordpress install relative to where you save the new page

    then you will most likely want to copy and include the relevant code out of your template files for the header, sidebar, footer and maybe more.

    Thank You for the OUTSIDE input. That me be a little difficult although i may be able to work through it, BUT ideally i would like to just create a new page inside WP that is everything the same minus the post area. How do i do this and create a text box to type my credentials in? TY JA

    In WP 2.7 - log in and get to the dashboard.

    click Pages on the left - click Add New

    again - unless I am misunderstainding what you want to accomplish.
