Problem with creating a custom template

 8:09 pm on Jul 24, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi Guys,

This is my first post here so I hope you are willing to help me. :).

For a customer i'm trying to create a custom template for a single Wordpress-page. The customer desires a single page with only the footer visible. I already found out how to hide the right sidebar and the menu and header, but the problem is that the stylesheet also disappears when i hide the header. Do you guys know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Here's the code I used:
Template Name: No Sidebar and No Header
* The template for displaying all pages.
* This is the template that displays all pages by default.
* Please note that this is the WordPress construct of pages
* and that other 'pages' on your WordPress site will use a
* different template.
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage Twenty_Twelve
* @since Twenty Twelve 1.0

//get_header(); ?>
<div id="contentwrapper">
<div id="contentcontainer">
<div id="content">
<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
<?php get_template_part( 'content', 'page' ); ?>
<?php endwhile; // end of the loop. ?>

<?php //get_sidebar(); ?>
<div class="clear"></div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

I haven't done this per se but from the Docs it seems an option would be to create a new header file and strip out all of the stuff you don't want. Make the filename header-styles.php and then call it in your template like so: get_header( 'styles' );

See: [codex.wordpress.org...]

Thanks lorax, this works perfect! I created a copy from header.php, called header-blanco.php. In this file I deleted some code (concerning menu, header image etc)

In the template file I changed this:

get_header(); ?>

into this:

get_header(blanco); ?>

That did the trick for me!

Fabulous! Glad it worked.
