I was in the process of making a custom template for pages that consists of everything except menus. So I copied index.php and grabbed some info from the header.php (which I swapped for the dynamic header plugin) and wound up getting a page that shows the loop on top of the sidebars.

I just can't seem to figure out how to get everything to align like it would had all I changed was the top header area.

I'm using ATA 3.4.4

and this code...

PHP Code:
<?php
/*
Template Name: LP
*/
?> 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

global $bfa_ata; if ($bfa_ata == "") include_once (TEMPLATEPATH '/functions/bfa_get_options.php'); ?>
<?php 
if ( $bfa_ata['css_external'] == "External" ) { ?>

Figured out how to get all the sidebars & content to show across the width of the center "container'

I added the following between the <head></head>...

PHP Code:
<?php     /* get all options: */ include (TEMPLATEPATH '/functions/bfa_get_options.php');?>
But for some reason the 1st widget takes up the whole center and kicks the rest just outside of the fixed width I had set up.

Would I have to style a new CSS/template to get these to line up?

I removed the extra <body> tag thanks for that...

Here's the entire code that worked for me. The key reason I did this was to create a header that mimicked my site headers minus clickable links. The menu bar spacing is retained as it's part of the site design.

PHP Code:
<?php
