I bet this is a simple question but I'm new to this theme AND word press in general. Anyways is there a way to basically wrap a static page with the theme around it? Like a template page??

I used the "page" functionality of WP to create a new page even downloaded a plugin to execute my PHP code and the form populates OKAY but when i submit my form, it gives me Not Found
Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here. I messed all around with the path information but I'm guessing this is because of a path issue and the fact this page doesn't technically exist until run-time. The static version in a folder of it's own works great but it's just a blank form with no header, footer, left bar, right bar, etc...

Can anyone please help with this?

thanks,
Jonathan

Can anyone please help. This is driving me nuts. How do i setup a page with something like: <?php get_sidebar(); ?> or <?php get_footer(); ?> with this theme?

thanks,
Jonathan

Make a copy of index.php as i.e. my-page.php, delete everything between <?php get_header(); ?> and <?php get_footer(); ?> in my-page.php and upload it to the theme's root directory.

In the site admin area add a new page, and while there scroll down and put "my-page" into the page slug option field at the bottom of the page. If it's not there, click the "Screen Options" button at the top right.

sounds good, but isn't there a more elegant way for tempalting? I mean this theme is only using a single template by the looks of it index.php no category.php no page.php was that your intention?

can you help me with this request:

I'd like the homepage to show some extra code on top of the page, so I made a page called home, set it up as the front page and now I'd like to edit its template and insert a line of php to show above the content.

You said "wrapping the theme around it" which made me think that you'd not create this page through Wordpress. If you just want to create a static Wordpress page then there's no "wrapping the theme around it" going on, it's a standard Wordpress feature to create static pages. And regarding page.php, single.php, category.php - you can create any of them by simply copying index.php. For a template that is supposed to be displayed on only the homepage you'd name the index.php copy home.php
