Firstly thanks mate appreciate it. This is one a a very small number of thesis sites that I have book marked — I come back to this site again and again, thank you for all your hard work.

Secondly I am using a skin from thesis themes and therefore have no idea on how to adjust the function php and do it that way i.e. by creating a custom page template — because the skin uses a custom page template for a “portfolio style” page.

That being said would you recommend another way — and why would removing the sidebars via css NOT be optimal ?

Appreciate your help
