    Is it possible to have a mixture a of column layouts as you go down the page?

    So top of the page will have full width where the banner will go.

    Below you can have a 2 column where can put widgets and stuff

    Below that have a 3 column layout for other things.

    Im pretty sure that he is using a custom layout. added area belowheader or above_content. also the main content area is not using a regular thematic layout. it is also a custom layout. and the footer appears to be just a thematic widgetized area with widgets.

    If it uses a full width template, how do I get those 2 column sections?

    Can you give me any pointers on how to get started with a similar custom layout? Sorry if this is basic stuff!

    Also how do I get the thematic widgetized area?

    Still looking for an efficient solution to this.

    Lets take this as an example - http://www.vmware.com/products/vsphere/

    Would you say thats a 2 column or 1 column layout?

    I you look at the section "Gain Elasticity and Flexibility...", the image on the left, should I be creating a separate Page template to put that image beside the text or can I do it within the Page editor in WP-admin?

    Think that should do it.
