Hi there,
I made a new static page to use as the front page, and I want to hide the center column (the one that contains all the posts) only on that page. I already set up a different page as the posts page, so the content of the center column isn't showing up on the front page. However, the box/container for the center column is still there and it's displacing my sidebars.

I temporarily added CSS to hide the center column -- I used display: none; -- which worked for my front page, but now the center column disappeared from every page!

I feel comfortable enough getting into the theme files and editing them manually, but I'm just not sure where to go to specify that I only want the center column hidden on the front page.

Here's the site:

As you can see, if you click on "blog" there is nothing there...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Nevermind, I figured it out! This is probably not the most legitimate way to do it, but I just deleted the center column cell... so I took <td id="middle"> out of the bottom of the header and </td> out of the top of the footer.

the way to do it with CSS would have been to prefix your selector with '' where xx is the id of the page, then the css would only apply to that page.

but there are many wayes to skin a cat.
Give a person a solution, you fix one issue, teach a person how to solve their problem you enable them forever.
