I think I will make my own review site

I want the review page to be hidden - not indexed, only available thru a direct url and/or a link and/or qr code

I created the page/s in html and added to a wordpress site I own - so far it is looking good



Now I just need to figure out - how to make stand alone full pages off a wordpress site, < I know how to make it one page, no side bar but I want all trace of wp gone, full screen....I think I did this before but I have to figure it out

My other option is to make the whole site in just regular html
or maybe just stand alone pages in html on the server and then link from the front end (wordpress site)

Any advice or any links to a help site where I could find how to do this are much appreciated

    What template are you using? You should be able to simply change the page settings to full width no sidebar. Just set the robots tag to no index nofollow. Make sure the links to the page are no follow.

    WordPress allows you to create page templates. So, instead to create a static page, you just need to create a new page template and assign this template to a page.

    You can choose not to incluse header.php, footer.php or sidebar.php and use it more like a static page (but you can also have access to WordPress functions).

    You can hide it depending on how the visitor will be sent to that page (set a query var in URL, send visitors through a form or something else) or I'm almost sure there are already plugins that can hide a specific page.

    Also, install WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast (or something similar) and that will let you easily set individual pages to no-index right in the WordPress pages editor.

    What you seem to be describing is a blank landing page.
    Easy in html. Just don't put anything on it (other than what you want, of course)

    In WP, depending on your theme, copy the page.php or fullpage.php, remove all the code that calls for header, footer, sidebar, etc, and rename landingpage.php
    Choose it as your post or page template.
    Many themes such as the genesis ones have the landing page already done for you.
    Cheers

    it varies from theme to theme but the jest of it is

    Code:
    page-id=4 header {
            display: none;
     }
     page-id=4 footer {
             display: none;
     }
    so the page-id=4 is going to be the specific WP page number, and then adding that to the elements you want to remove.

    If you want to PM me your site link I will get you the specific code set for you to get this done!

    Thanks again


    I was able to find a super super simple wordpress theme and did not remove header and made footer pretty much "nothing" there I have a simple title about reviews that does not conflict with what I am doing and looks fine on the hidden pages


    the best advice was the plug in for seo, that made it very easy to make it no follow, no robots


    I created the pages in wordpress but I prefer old fashion tables so I used (free LOL) seamonkey (Mozilla) composer to make tables for my little clickable choices


    In future I may create some with absolutely no header but for now this worked for me
