Fluid-width post template
The fluid-width template is a standard page template without a sidebar, allowing the content of the page to take 100% of the site container’s width.
Like pages, individual posts can be set to use a specific custom Page Template as well. As an example, selecting CONJ theme’s fluid-width template for a particular post will override the default layout structure of the single post template and removes the sidebar area from the view.
