I have a memoir document, with custom settings for margins, headers and footers, etc. I just found out it is being printed single-sided instead of double-sided, and I was wondering if there is a simple command to treat all pages as odd pages.

How can I tell memoir to format the even pages exactly as it would the odd pages?

How about adding the class option oneside?

P.S.: This should work for all classes featuring the \chapter command plus the twoside default option. In particular, it works for the standard class book and the KOMA-Script class scrbook.

If I'm understanding you correctly you need to use something like this:

%%% set up the recto page layout
\checkandfixthelayout %or perhaps \checkandfixthelayout[lines]
\setlength{\evensidemargin}{\oddsidemargin}% after \checkandfix......
