I recently created a survey and was able to redirect users to a thank you page after they finish taking the survey.

Is there a way where I could change the layout of the survey page (newform.aspx?source=thankyou.aspx), currently it's inheriting the layout from the parent site....I'd like to add a new layout but don't know how to do it.  

I'd like to figure out a way to not show the the navigation/Quick Launch on the survey page so the survey could take up the "whole" page.......I'd like to add a new layout but don't know how to do it.  Any suggestions?

you can change it using the SHAREPOINT DESIGNER open that site using sharepoint designer.
drill down to the surver list and open that .aspx file then check it out you can see the web part region.
what you need to do here is change it to custom content from default master content.
 here is a tutorial you can refer that

Hi Kudai - Thanks for working with me on this issue.   I've attached a few images to better explain what I'm trying to do with the survey page.  The link   /list/survey/newform.aspx?source=thankyou.aspx which will take them to the survey page - please see screen shot below.
Survey Page
I'd like to be able to delete the navigation on the left hand side so the survey could take up the whole page.  I tried to edit the newform.aspx in Designer but won't allowed me to do so - please see screen shots below.

 It looks like that the survey page is inheriting from the parents site...I'd like to specifically just change the survey page so the navigation won't show up.     Is this possible?  Please let me know.

ok if you just want to hide the left navigation panel then follow these steps.
1.edit the page
2. Add a content editor web part
3. add this script on the source ::<style>.ms-navframe{ display:none; }</style>
4. hide the content web part and click ok then your left navigation panel will be hidden.

Thank you for the response.  It didn't work when we put in that script ::<style>.ms-navframe{ display:none; }</style> instead we used ::<style>.ms-quicklaunchouter{ display:none; }</style> and got the result below

i just checked your message and tried to one of the survey list.
First of all write that script  in the source of the content editor web part in the page that you are trying to hide.
Then open it with SPD. Check out the particular file then double click it,
Leave the code view check the graphical view and start removing the elements on the left side manually.
once you are done then check in bacak you will see the change.
Check the Screen Shot thats how i did it for mine. Survey hiding left navigation

Hi Kudai - Hope you had nice weekend.  Unfortunately, I'm unable to remove the navation bar completely.  I followed your procedures and was unable to get rid of the blue bars.  I was unable to  select bars and deleting it from the tag area either.   I get this message when I select the bar:  PlaceHolderLeftNavBarDataSource(Master)   Please advise.

CLICK ON that Arrow then click on custom content. just select that part and hit delete button. try tight clicking and select delete cell or row or column.
As i have shown you mine i was able to do like that so this is the process that can give you that kind of layout.
