Single Column One Column Template
This is a simple, single-column template.
The one-column is my all-time favorite. I almost start writing on a single-column template before I decide where it should goes to when I create a new page. This helps me to focus on just the content. It helps get rid of all those additional stuff I have to place on the side bar. All those are considered last.
If you are a total newbie on HTML, I suggest you start with the one-column template. Everything here is aleady overwhelming for you if you are new, why bring in additonal and unneccessary burden to the side? The sidebar requires careful planning at the later stage.
If you want your readers to focus on the content, concentrate on the content. Later on, when you bring in the side bar, you'll know this area is the focal point. Having too much distraction by the would make your page less effective.
You'll notice that the links at the top navigation are all linked to pages of a single-column. What about the navigation that are on the sidebar?

You can put them at the bottom of the page. If you'd seen a fat-footer, you'll know what I mean. In this template, I didn't want a fat-footer. I just call the file for the sidebar at the bottom. Well, this file is designed to be placed at the side so it looks ugly here and it's taking too much space.
Another alternative is to place just a few links to for your readers to choose, or if this is a landing page or a sales page, then only one link is sufficient. That will lead them to the order page.
That should be the preferred action from your readers instead of letting them wandered to anywhere else.
