If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I am trying to make the About page I have a “full page” but the page layout options on the right hand sidebar do not offer this. Currently it’s on a default option and naturally, none of the other options of no content/big title etc. fit the bill. I have got round this before by cloning one of the example data pages (the shortcodes page which is a full page) but this is not possible in this case or I will lose the option to maintain the page URL and don’t want an about-2/ page if I do not use current one so how can I change it? I checked the options and all seem to be the same, it’s not intuitive in this respect. The site is currently up on a temp URL and the page is: http://184.108.40.206/~photos/about/.
I’ve tried using the half page shortcode to see if that fools the page into going full width – ?? but it clearly doesn’t.
You can force the page to take the full width attribute by selecting the gallery option Flexible Grid Gallery. See:
Also to note, you can always change the slug for a page (the URL text) by clicking Edit next to the page URL under the page title.
Thanks Devin, got it sorted now.
Re the ps, I’ve always found that if a page has been created with a certain slug then even if it is deleted/trashed, any WordPress template will not let you create another page with the same slug. Thankfully it’s not an issue at the moment now that is sorted though!
