Creating a Different layout for our Site

Creating a Different layout for our Site:
1.At first we need to create a content type as "layout" and save it.

2.After creating the content type,keep this coding in the top of the template file,

function yourthemename_preprocess_page(&$variables) {
    if ($variables['node']->type == "layout") {
        $variables['template_files'][] = "page-node-" . $variables['node']->type;

3.Then create a tpl as,page-node-layout.tpl.php.

4.In that tpl you can able to create a diff structure for the different layout from the old

5.Then print the content that you want to display in that layout like this,

<?php print $content;?>

6.After creating the tpl,create the contents under the "layout" content type

7.Now you will get the different kind of layout from old layout.There your contents will display.

***Different layout in the sense,with header or footer or both or just a content page without header,footer,left & right side blocks.
