I've done a lot of custom WordPress design and I'm above average in CSS/HTML. However,I know next to nothing about PHP. I've generally created WordPress Themes from scratch, but this time around I decided to use Twenty Thirteen as a bit of a "wireframe" if you will.
The landing page is going to be the blog page with the last 10 blog post excerpts. This page will be full width with NO SIDEBAR.
When you click "read more" or whatever to view the Single Post, I will have a sidebar.
Deleting the "Get sidebar" from Index.php was easy.
However, I would like to style the blog excerpt page (index.php) completely different than the single.php.
It shares it's CSS which is understandable. I figured I would just be able to go into the index.php and write completely different CSS identifiers for that page leaving the Single.PHP untouched. But, I can't seem to edit the CSS or layout of one without effecting the other.
I am sure this has to do with the PHP?
You can see my "theme test" site here:
Landing page/Excerpts (Full width/No Sidebar)
Single post (WITH Sidebar):
Any help on separating the layout/format of the single post and the landing page?
