This is very simple. In my theme "clean" I have several examples, however, it is not obvious from the default install as it was not made to take advantage of it. I did however, ship it with the ability to have different left and right blocks as well as different blocks within the left or right. Open the clean theme and read the included functions.php file in it. The code you will find in the functions.php file for the clean theme is NOT included in any other theme. There you will find examples on how to have different block styles within the left or right blocks AND have a different left and right block altogether. I think the code you will find is very self explainitory and should not require additional help on my part. Keep in mind though that you will need to start making extra thtml files in your theme to support the left and right block and also for any individual block you want to create. Have fun! PS: A big thanks goes out to Tony for writing that code for me more than a year ago! Smile

Can this functions.php from the Clean theme brought into other themes to do the same?

Could someone tell me what extra thtml files need to be made? This wasn\'t clear to me by just looking at that functions.php file. Thanks.

It sure can.

From memory: Look for files that say leftblock and rightblocks or something similar.
