I'm really loving Pagelines right now. Everything is so flexible to create a one of a kind unique site. One question I had was about my blog posts. I want to have a menu button in the top nav bar that says 'BLOG' and when clicked it displays my blog posts in the fullwidth layout mode. Kind of how the blog menu item display posts on the Platform Pro Demo. How can I achieve this? I'm using the Platform Pro theme.

You can probably use the Custom Menus option. Do your blog posts have categories?

Create a new page named "blog". At the very bottom of the edit screen under "Platform Pro Template Options" set it to "fullwidth layout". Under Settings->Reading select your blog page as "static page" and select "blog".
