I have created 2 skins: one with a single column, one with 2 columns (a contentPane and a 'toolbar')

On some of my pages I want 2 columns, on other I want one. I think switching skins is the approach for that (correct me if I'm wrong). Most modules I place in the toolbar I want on all pages with the toolbar, so I set them to "include on all pages". Unfortunately on pages without the toolbar skin object, DNN just puts the toolbar's modules in the main pane and I've to remove them one by one (and again on every new page).

Is there a way to ignore the modules on pages without the toolbar pane?
    <div id='ToolbarPane' visible='false' runat='server' />
didn't work, the modules are still placed in the contentPane.
Hiding the modules clientside is not what I'm looking for.

no, modules placed on a page will always be shown, disregarding the existence of the pane, they are placed in (if not avail, they will be displayed in ContentPane). the sole option you have is a page at -1000px (off screen) to hold the module - however, it should not expect an input or might block other modules on the page.

Any other ideas on how to approach my problem? It's useless to have the event planner calendar on all my admin pages. It wastes valuable space. but there are quite a few admin pages, so both removing them from every admin page, or adding them to every user page is al lot of work.

If you don't mind the weight of the page, you can simply include the toolbar pane at the bottom of the page and set it to display:none.
I know it is dirty...

I'm unconvinced of the merits of show on all pages.

If you want something on every page that uses a specific skin; then what you want needs to be a part of the skin. Can you make it a skin object, not a module?
