im using compositio rite now and facing problems in removing the sidebar from a page which i created specifically for forum (simplepress)…the default page.php does not have the sidebar calls but still it displays the sidebar,,,which lead me to a conclusion that the sidebar call is in other template…unfortunately i cannot figure it out and the designer ( also does not provide the necessary documentation and support so im against the compositio theme…but i like black power will give it a try

I would also like to see some 3 column themes. Monetising is an important consideration for many blogs and in my opinion, 3 column themes are better suited to monetising.
