I'm new to the twenty ten theme, having always hard-coded my sidebars in the past. With twenty-ten it seems like it should be pretty easy to create one page without a sidebar: just select the page in Admin, select Edit, then choose the "one column no sidebar" template on the right hand column under Page Attributes. Easy enough, so why doesn't it work?
The site I'm building has a sidebar on all pages except the blog page, and single blog post pages. Selecting 'one column no sidebar' results in some subtle changes to the code for the blog page, but the sidebar is still there. Here is the code for the BODY tag on pages using the default template...
<body class="page page-id-64 page-template page-template-default logged-in admin-bar">
...and here is the BODY tag for the blog page...
<body class="blog logged-in admin-bar">
So choosing 'one column no sidebar' does SOMETHING, but it doesn't remove the sidebar. It seems as if it prevents the page from using the default template, but doesn't allow it to use any other template. What could cause this?
And where should I look for the solution? I'm even willing to hard-code the elimination of the blog page sidebar...but I shouldn't have to.
