Is it possible to create a blank page with only the background? I would like to create an intro page without sidebars, logos, menu, cart, and white background; only the background and add my html code to put picture and text.
I thought to make a static html page but I’d rather do it in Abundance with the rest of the site if it is possible …October 16, 2012 at 8:23 am #94145
Kindly open wp-contentthemesabundance and create a new file and name it: template-blank.php
and add this code inside it:
* Template Name: Blank Page
<html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
<meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
<!-- page title, displayed in your browser bar -->
<title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | <?php is_home() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?></title>
<!-- add feeds, pingback and stuff-->
<link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="<?php echo get_bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS2 Feed" href="<?php avia_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url')); ?>" />
<link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />
<!-- plugin and theme output with wp_head() -->
/* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head>
* tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which
* generally use this hook to add elements to <head> such
* as styles, scripts, and meta tags.
margin: 0 auto;
<div class='container_wrap' id='main'>
<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<?php the_content(); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
with the background that you want. You can access this in Pages > Add New and on the right side find Page Attributes > Templates, and select “Blank Page”. Put some content and publish it. Hope this helps. :)

…I spoken too quickly
1- I created the template-blank.php as you say above and the new page with “Blank Page” selected as template. I named it “Frontpage4”
2- I included some pictures and html code and a link to a shop category page
3 – All is perfect if I click the “Preview change” button. Also, if I put this page “frontpage4” into a menu, all is ok too.
4- BUT, when I set my frontage setting (into Abundance–>Theme option) to this page (frontage 4 instead of my old one frontpage3)
that does not work anymore: I optain my blank page with the right background but the wrong text (it seem to display a blog post with LoremIpsum into my blank page instead of my custom html code and image !?)
Does I do something wrong ?
I can send you a login/pass if you want to look.
