For the site desertpipes1.com, I'm working with a blog post page for the first time, and can't figure out how to do a few things. I found some videos but they were not the right ones for what I want to do. I have a feeling this should not be hard to do, I'm just having trouble finding where to start.

1) I don't want a sidebar. I took the sidebar out of the content area in the Home template, which got rid of the sidebar, but did not go full width - it is still 2/3. For the other regular pages, when I removed the sidebar, the main content area became full width. I have a template to do that, but if I apply it, my blogs all go away. Is there a setting for a posts page to make it full width?

2) Where do I find text settings for the posts? I want to change the active link color for the post titles, and the attributes, but I can't figure out which text Skin Design Text dropdowns are the correct ones to apply.

Thanks for your help on these basic questions.

Edit Home Template change columns to Single Column.

If you are manually changing templates you could have made a problem.

Keith,

That worked. I see what I did - I had dragged the second column into the tray, so the second column was simply white. I made the change you said and it works now!

Thanks,
Marcy

Unfortunately, when I made that change, something else broke. Now my popup consultation form is at the bottom of every page, and the buttons no longer work. I have no clue on this one. I'm assuming this is not something I can ask in this forum. I'll go to the popup forum and see if I can get an answer there.

Thanks,
Marcy
