    Is it possible to use a new template for the individual portfolio item pages other than (what I assume to be) the single.php? If not, can I point the links from each item on the portfolio main area to pages that I can apply a template to? Any help is appreciated.



    have a look at this tutorial: – of course you can modify the template as you like (not just remove the sidebar) :)


    Spot on. Just what I needed. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.



    Plug-in is perfect, one more thing if I can add-on…can I add a custom sidebar to the logic already in place in the sidebar.php file? So when I go to this new template page I can have a special sidebar for it. Can find any area for registering sidebars as I am accustomed to (in the function file for example), so would appreciate the help.


    In widgets.php you can register a new widget area. Just use following code and add it to the other registration functions:

    'name' => 'Custom Widget',
    'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="box_small box widget %2$s">',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h3 class="widgettitle">',
    'after_title' => '</h3>',

    Then open up sidebar.php and replace:

    //Frontpage sidebars:
    if ($k_option['showSidebar'] == 'frontpage' && dynamic_sidebar('Frontpage Sidebar') ) : $default_sidebar = false; endif;


    //Custom sidebar:
    if ( $my_template == '1' && dynamic_sidebar('Custom Widget') ) : $default_sidebar = false; endif;
    ////Frontpage sidebars:
    if ($k_option['showSidebar'] == 'frontpage' && dynamic_sidebar('Frontpage Sidebar') ) : $default_sidebar = false; endif;

    At least set a variable in your template like:

    $my_template = '1';


    Many thanks. Got it worked out.
