I have D6 and the Panels module installed.
I want to be able to control the entire page layout from within Drupal itself, without having to write any new code such as a template file etc
To achieve this, I create a very basic template file which includes the standard html, style, body elements etc and just:
<?php print $content; ?>
This works great, it allows me to for example create a Panel layout for different page layouts, but it also allows me to create full-page landing pages without header/footer etc
The only drawback is that for pages that dont have a Panels template, say for example the user login page, how do I then style/structure this page?
