Widget columns

Topics: Themes

Typical blog themes come in 2 column and 3 column layouts.  Are there plans to have multiple widget containers on a page, where some widgets are in one, while other widgets are on the other container? 

It is a bit limiting that if you want to support widgets in your themes, then you are basically limited to 2 column layouts, unless you want to hard code half of your sidebars, like we did in 1.3.

Yes, we have plans to allow for multiple widget zones

Sounds good.  It should be easy enough to retrofit whatever themes we create till that is ready.  Thanks for the reply.

Is there any update on this? Is it possible in recent releases?

Thanks.

I know that this feature was rolled out with version 1.4.5.  I have seen people implement the controls in the themes with two (2) and three (3) columns.  I just finished a new theme, you can see it here http://wwwichoosetofeel.net.  I am working on this in a custom BE.N installation.  I will post the code when I have completed it.  Has anyone else attempted this and wants to share?

So what's the trick of it? Adding multiple WidgetZone controls to the maste page just produces an error.
