It is possible to have two different widgets zones, with different contents each in the same homepage ?

1.5 support multiple widget zones, you'll need to adjust your theme to include second zone and should be able to use both side by side.

Hi rtur, thanks for replay,


i already done, but, if i delete something in the Widget Zone 1, Widget Zone 2 will be exaclty the same content has Widget, Adding or Deletting, will be mirrored in the both widget zone...

Like this:

<div id="leftcol"><!-- begin leftcol -->
    <blog:WidgetZone runat="server" ID="leftzone" />

   </div><!-- end leftcol -->
   <div id="rightcol"><!-- begin rightcol -->

    <hr />
                <blog:WidgetZone runat="server" ID="rightzone" />
   </div><!-- end righttcol -->


Im doing anything wrong ?

Actually, multiple widget zones was added to BE in 1.5.1.  The latest official release of BE is (meaning multiple widget zones was added after 1.5).

You can download the latest build of BE which includes support for multiple widget zones on the Source Code tab above.  You do need to compile the BE core using Visual Studio in order to use the latest build (the builds on the Source Code tab aren't compiled).

Here's information on using multiple widgetzones in BE:
