Put the code below in an empty file and save it as "empty-page.php"

Template Name: The Empty Stuff
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
        <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
        <title>Title goes here</title>
    <body class="empty">
        <div class="boo">
        <?php the_content(); ?>
        </div><!--end boo--> 

Make sure you define in your stylesheet (style.css) the "empty" & "boo" classes. E.g. center the div, give it top margin etc...
Then make a new Page in WP > select as Page template this one (i.e empty-page). You can give it a title for yourself (but it won't display it) publicly. Whatever you will put into the text/content area (image, text etc.) will be shown on the 'front-end' of your Page.

I want to create a database table with a column corresponding to the time in my wordpress site, so that I can save user actions into this table and know when they did it.

Creating a table:

$sql = "CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS $table_name (
        actiontime NOT NULL DATETIME,
        PRIMARY KEY (id)
    ) $charset_collSate;";
    require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php' );
    // execute the query
    dbDelta( $sql );

Is this correct?

I would want a time stamp such that I can get the difference on minute/second intervals.
