First, copy the contents of the pub/skins/pmwiki directory to another
location, such as pub/skins/rosas. This will be where you will modify
your template. In your local/config.php file, set
$PageTemplateFmt = 'pub/skins/rosas/pmwiki.tmpl';
to tell PmWiki to use your modified template instead of PmWiki's default.
To get rid of the sidebar, just edit the pub/skins/rosas/pmwiki.tmpl
file to get rid of the <!--PageLeftFmt--> section and the
You'll probably also want to change the stylesheet reference link at
the top of the template file to use href="$PubDir/skins/rosas/pmwiki.css".
You might also look at the classic skin template files for
how it is done (http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/Cookbook/ClassicSkin).
I'll try to add some instructions about installing and modifying
skins a bit later.
