    I desperately want to create a new page template. v8.9.6 August green responsive
    all I want it to do is:

    1) pull the default home page owl slider
    2) have it listed as a template I can call for other pages
    3) display the content and data I create for the page in the WP page editor.

    In other words, it would be a template, that only calls the owl slider from the default home page, and content I specify in the WP page editor.

    Can anyone like Josh make a zip? :) I have been hacking my way through loops and functions but I am rusty and not as familiar and I take 2 steps forward and 2 steps back.

    Josh, Thank you very much for trying. Let me show you with a little more detail what I want.

    I setup Coupon press and the August green responsive on a clean install on another domain, so that no plugins or other conflicts are there.

    the top slider with the featured coupons (gas masks) is what I am wanting to show up in the custom page template.

    I installed your template you graciously sent, and the result is this:

    test

    Also, I want it to be a full page template. I selected full page in the WIDTH option in WordPress without any change. Sidebar remains.

    Thank you so much.

    Josh,
    When I follow the directions to create a new page template:

    1) copy page.php from main theme
    2) paste as page-custom.php in child and add template name in comments

    It functions properly – however the sidebar will not go away when I select PAGE WIDTH: FULL PAGE from with wordpress page edit screen. As if the sidebar is hardcoded in the results somehow – although I don’t see it in the page template.

    I want to make a full page template that acts like default template when page width: full page is selected.
