I need to change the orientation of only ONE page in Writer, but for some reason it only lets me do it for ALL the pages. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Page orientation is a property of page styles - so if all your pages have the same page style they will all have the same orientation. If you change it, the change will apply to all pages.

Perhaps all your pages have the Default (portrait) page style. There is a built-in Landscape page style which has the other orientation and may suit your purpose.
o Put the cursor at the end of the last portrait page.
o Go to Insert | Manual Break... .
o Under Type, select "Page break".
o Under Style, select Landscape from the drop-down list.
o Now put the cursor at the end of the single landscape page.
o Go to Insert | Manual Break... .
o Under Type, select "Page break".
o Under Style, select Default from the drop-down list.

Each page break is associated with a change in page style: from Default to Landscape and back again. If these built-in page styles do not suffice, you can modify them or even create your own, of course.

I trust this helps.
