    With Genesis frame work, how would I go about removing the sidebar on a single page? I have the dynamik child theme, so I can easily enter it in the custom css area . The problem is that I dont know what css to use for this or how to figure it out.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Edit your page. You should have Layout Settings on there, where you just choose the full-width layout. If you don’t see that option, then check Screen Options at the very top, and check Layout Settings.

    Thanks, that removed the sidebar (easy) but my content area isnt full width. It’s just the same width as other pages minus the sidebar… My entire page width is 1100, how do I make this page that wide without sidebar? Is it possible?

    Okay, I just figured it out, thanks to your original reply. I saw the “labels” option there underneath the layout settings and explored it. Created a label in the custom area, “Width 1100″, saved and then selected it on the page settings. Worked like a charm.

    How about that. I’ve never heard of that last bit. Must be a Dynamik thing.

    I’m glad you’re straightened out. Just an FYI for later – if you happen to have Dynamik-specific questions, most of them will go begging here, just because most of us don’t necesssarily have it. :-) Eric may have some support for that on his site.

    Cheers, Dave

    I wish it were that easy. The tool is awesome, but their policies say they won’t help with css (though apparently didn’t need it in this situation) and the forum is almost a ghost town.

    By the way, David, your signature link threw up a 403 error.

    Stephen,
    Thanks for the FYI about my link. I actually block large swaths of servers whose ISP’s are home to people who are doing not-nice things. Unfortunately, innocent people may get caught in that net. If we were working together, I’d figure out a way to let you in. I had to let in a friend from Germany that way, for instance. :-)

    And a little-known secret is that most forums won’t help you much with CSS. The assumption, fair or not, is that if you’re developing sites, and you want to make alterations, that it’s your responsibility to know some CSS. Many products rely on volunteer help. IMO, if they grow significantly, this practice will eventually not work.

    There are CSS forums, btw, although a big one that I used to hang out on had some pretty annoying OCD “grammarians” on it, so I eventually left.

    In any case, CSS is lots of fun for me, so I do take more questions like that than others.

    Cheers, Dave
