Twenty ten front page (4 posts)

    Hi,
    I searched through many posts in this forum to find my answer but didn't find what I was looking for.

    I am using twenty ten and would like to know how I can customize the front page so that it is a single column with no sidebars. I would like to keep the sidebars on the other pages.

    When I create a new page i have the option of using the default template or using one column no sidebar template. Why can't I do this on the front page? And why is the front page not included in the list of pages when I click on "pages" in the admin side? How do I access it?

    I know I can hide the sidebar using CSS but then it gets rid of it on all pages and I just want to do it on the front page.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    a few ideas (not extremely tested):

    edit index.php; comment the 'get_sidebar()'

    <?php // get_sidebar(); ?>

    edit style.css, and add:

    .home #content { width:900px; }

    this might be all - but 'the devil is in the detail ...'

    You can solve this problem by making a static home page and applying the one-column template to it. I found the instructions here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    You'll Add 2 new pages - one called Home, and one called Blog, which will appear in the top navigation.

    There are step by step instructions at the link above.

    Can you help me with figuring out what the RTL style sheets do, and how I can make them behave ? here is the site I am customizing using Twenty Ten theme: http://mikebonacorsi.com/wordpress/

    RTL stands for 'right-to-left' - for countries that write this way (or Leonardo daVincis (?).

    behave in what way?

    the site looks quite ok to me (FF3.6); not too bad in IE7.

    html validation and css validation is not extremely bad, either.
