• Can I turn off the left or right hand columns for some pages only?

    Yes, you can. Firstly, if you don't already have one, create an over-ride file for tpl_main_page.php in your includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/common directory.

    There is enormous scope within this one module to create turn the left and right hand columns on and off according to which page or category is to be displayed. Open it up and you will see a large comment at the top explaining some of them. Here are a few examples to help illustrate that ...

    If you wished to turn off the left hand column for the "contact us" and "terms & conditions" pages, find the following block of code
      if (in_array($current_page_base,explode(",",'list_pages_to_skip_all_right_sideboxes _on_here,separated_by_commas,and_no_spaces')) ) {
         $flag_disable_right = true;
      }

    and edit it to read
      if (in_array($current_page_base,explode(",",'contact_us,conditions')) ) {
         $flag_disable_left = true;
      }


    If you wished to disable both columns in category listings either add or edit the above block to read
    if (in_array($cPath,explode(",",'3,8')) ) {
        $flag_disable_right = true;
        $flag_disable_left = true;
      }


    To disable the right column for a series of EZ-Pages
        if (in_array($ezpage_id,explode(",",'2,5'))) {
        $flag_disable_right = true;
      }


    Or, you can use the settings in Admin->Configuration->EZ-Pages Settings:
    For example:
    EZ-Pages Pages to disable left-column
    EZ-Pages "pages" on which to NOT display the normal "left" column (of sideboxes) for your site.
    Simply list page ID numbers separated by commas with no spaces.
    Page ID numbers can be obtained from the EZ-Pages screen under Admin->Tools.
    ie: 21
    or leave blank.

    To turn off the left column for the home page only, you would insert the following:
      if ($this_is_home_page) {
         $flag_disable_left = true;
      }
