TIP: How to create single page website (salesletter-type) with Atahualpa
 
My long time dream was to find a nice and clean Wordpress theme without all the bells, whistles and junks hanging all over it.

What if I want to start with 1-page salesletter-type site (while having all the Wordpress SEO powers under the hood) and then grow it up from there?

Here's how to make your Wordpress website - pure 1-page site with no junk around:


- Install Wordpress + Atahualpa, activate it.
- Goto WP Admin Panel -> Pages->Add new and create your page. It could salesletter, photo gallery - whatever you want.
- Uncheck [ ] Allow Comments and [ ] Allow pings
- [Publish]
- WP Admin Panel -> Settings -> Reading - "Front page displays" = "A static page", select the page that you just created.
- [Save changes] button
- WP Admin Panel -> Appearance -> Atahualpa options -> Header -> Configure Header Area :
erase everything from there.
- Scroll down and [Save Changes].
- WP Admin Panel -> Appearance -> Atahualpa options -> Sidebars -> LEFT sidebar: display on:
Uncheck all checkboxes. Do the same for RIGHT sidebar: display on: (uncheck all boxes)
- Scroll down and [Save Changes].
- WP Admin Panel -> Appearance -> Atahualpa options -> Post/Page styling -> HEADLINE box, and enter this: visibility: hidden;
- Scroll down and [Save Changes].
- Final touch:
WP Admin Panel -> Appearance -> Atahualpa options -> Layout -> Layout Container Style, replace text box with this (customize for your needs):
border: 1px solid gray;
padding-top:10px;
margin-top:10px;
margin-bottom:10px;

Now clear browser's cache, reload and check your website - nice, clean one-page website.

- As your site start growing you may gradually enable more pages/posts/sidebars/images and the rest of good stuff, thanks to powers of admin-panel-driven Atahualpa.

Enjoy,

Is it possible to do the same in the latest 3.5.3 version?
The page and category bars still remain (even though the text is removed), as well as two hardly visible narrow grey bar-lines at the bottom. :(

See some more details here:

Can't find the solution..

As I mentioned in the other thread the wide light and dark gray bars are a background image in ATO>Body, Text, & Links that looks like the following.
HTML Code:

background: #fff url('<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/background7.png') repeat-x top left;
The lighter gray lines are a top border in ATO>Style & edit Footer>Footer Style and a bottom border in ATO>Style Posts & Pages>Post Container.
