Using with VanillaBootstrap theme
I am using a switch case for adding specific .css file for some custom pages. @hgtonight made this for me.
This works perfectly but the only problem is the sidebar, which i want to remove completely. So i was searching and i found this topic:
But i don't know how to handle with this.
What i actually want is for those custom pages load a different .tpl
This is part of my code in calss.bootstrapthemehooks.php:

///////////// load different .css for specific pages ///////////
        public function PluginController_Render_Before($Sender) {
    // Only execute on the Page method of the plugin controller
    if($Sender->RequestMethod == 'page') {
      // Only add custom.css for certain pages
      $PageName = GetValue(0, $Sender->RequestArgs, 'default');
      // put any page names you want to load different CSS files in this switch case statement
      switch($PageName) {
        case 'scripts':
        case 'develop':
          // You will probably need to modify this path
      //$this->MasterView = 'themes/VanillaBootstrap/views/scripts.master.tpl'; // trying something like this 
          // Don't do anything to other pages


Can someone help me with that to load for these pages a different .tpl?

    The tpl file is chosen via the controllers MasterView member.

    Explicitly setting it will override the defaults. You would use something like $Sender->MasterView = 'scripts';
