Would like to vary # of columns on pages vs posts

  1. Hi there,
    I'm using free WP hosting, with a theme that allows three columns (Blaskan). I would really like to have three columns (so, primary and secondary sidebars) on "post" pages, but only two columns (just the secondary sidebar, not the primary) on "page" pages. Is this a change I can make in the CSS? Does anybody know what the code might look like? Even hints to send me in the right direction are much appreciated. Thanks!

  3. The site/blog is wordpress hosted, but it's currently private.

  4. To hide the left column for pages only in the Blaskan theme, add this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor:

    .page #primary {
    	display: none;
    }
    
    .page #content {
    	width: 790px;
    }

    To hide the right column:

    .page #secondary {
    	display: none;
    }
    
    .page #content {
    	width: 790px;
    }
  5. Yes, thank you so much. I actually just figured it out on my own last night! :)
