I'm creating a custom home-page template and I would like to make use of a 3-column layout in the content area hopefully using widgets that can easily be updated. I currently have a random image generator in the content area and would like to have the text columns below this. In the second column, I'd like to have the latest blog posts displaying, while the other 2 columns would just be static text.
Any ideas how to best pull this off using thematic? Let me know if you need any more info. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
