    Do I need to upgrade my site to take advantage of a static front page with no sidebar widgets?

    The blog I need help with is gentlemenstandard.com.

    No. The theme description is found here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/elemin/

    Read-access to the premium themes forum is now open to all users so you can search to see if your question has been previously asked and answered there. The premium theme forums are at http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/ with separate sections for each theme.
    http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/forum/elemin

    If you are not successful when searching there is a link for the specific Premium Theme support forum for your theme under Appearance -> Themes in your blog’s Dashboard, but do note that the premium theme must be active and you must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see it and post to it.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site (Showcase page template) and a “Blog” page for posts.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    Which do you choose? It’s one or the other.

    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    “I can’t find the Page Attributes’ module”

    To create a showcase template, you need to go to Pages > Add New. That’s the dashboard screen that should be displaying the Page Attributes module. If it isn’t, you click Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ while on that screen (the page editor screen): and include all the Pages and Posts modules. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules each dashboard screen has different screen options.

    I’m sorry, I used the wrong phrasing. I want my page to look like this: http://lovelifeeat.com/

    But my only options under Appearance is right side bar and left side bar. There isn’t an option for full width.

    Thanks for the clarification. There is Staff support for the custom design upgrade. Please be patient while waiting.

    Thank you.

    Elemin will adjust automatically if you remove all of the widgets using your Appearance → Widgets page. No CSS needed. :)

    If you have questions about Premium Themes in the future, please post them at http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/ Cheers :)

    Does this include the widgets in the footer? Because, I do want to keep those widgets.
