Create a new template

Step 1

  1. Go to the main folder of the active theme (wp-content/themes/active_theme) We recommend using a child theme, so the changes are not going to be overridden during a theme update.
  2. Create a new php file called “full-screen.php”. In this file, paste the following code:
<?php /* Template Name: Full Screen */ ?>
<?php get_header(‘blank’); ?>
/* Start the Loop */
while ( have_posts() ) :
the_content(); endwhile;
// End of the loop.
<?php get_footer(‘blank’);

Step 2

  1. Make a copy of the existing active header file and name it “header-blank.php”. 
  2. In this new file, remove all the unnecessary HTML code, and make sure to copy CSS roles from the following example.
  3. The result should match the following:
<!doctype html>
<html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
<meta charset=”<?php bloginfo( ‘charset’ ); ?>” />
<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1″ />
.page-template-full-screen { height: 100vh; }
.page-template-full-screen iframe { border: 0; }
<body <?php body_class(); ?>>
<?php wp_body_open(); ?>

Step 3

  1. Make a copy of the existing active footer file and name it “footer-blank.php”.
  2. In this new file, remove all the unnecessary HTML code and add the following script (code between &lt;script&gt; tags). 
  3. The result should be something like the following:
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
