Cant change page types
What do I do? Can this be fixed without reinstalling everything?
Does this make sense? or is it still supposed to remove the sidebar because I told c5 to do it? or is it completely dependent on the theme and the page types the author chose to use for their theme?
The alternative would be to create a new 'layout' with two columns and adjust the columns to fit your desired content.
Have a look at the bottom of this page for an example of a two column-http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/general-topics/how-a-page-lo...
Which theme are you using?
To get a 'full width' page type, all you need to do is-
edit page>> design>> full width
You could of course always create your own theme but you may want to start with a fresh install.
If your site behaves unexpectedly, try clearing the cache.

If that doesn't help, then there may be an error with the install. Did you use a one-click install?
If you are comfortable doing so, you could create a new user under the admin group, PM me the login details and I'll try having a look for you. You could always then go back and delete the new user.
where someone else (dstrickler) had a similar same issue. It may or may not help.
The best answer by Ollie Phillips - "Check your theme. For presentational use of page types, you'll need specific .php files in there which match the page types you are trying to add in the dashboard. Otherwise everything will be getting displayed with default.php"
I also tried a couple of different them packages. I'm thinking one of the theme packages altered my full-page page type to have a sidebar.
Is it possible to edit the page-type and alter the block positions?
the site I am working on is at:http://sandbox.themonogrammer.com/concrete18.104.22.168...
and I am currently using the dotAwesome theme package.
