I'm new to WordPress, so please be kind.
Also: I did search here, and elsewhere and I read everything that even vaguely touched on what I need. And I'm still stuck.
I'm using a variation on the Kubrick theme that I got off the wp/themes site (two sidebars right).
I need to have Pages that are without distraction --just the text and the comment form, a simplified header, and a link to the front page.
I tried to do this by commenting out the 'get sidebar' command on page.php, but no luck. I'm pretty proficient at html but I'm just learning php. I realize there must be some kind of conditional statement (show sidebar/header only on the blog pages), but (1) how to write it and (2) where to put it -- I'm lost.
As I said I did extensive searching, but if I somehow missed a thread that resolves this kind of issue, please point me in that direction. Otherwise any help would be greatly appreciated.
