I am trying to create a template (using artisteer) and then editing it to do what i want. You can see the layout here:
What I am trying to accomplish is to have the content area (white box 1098 pixels wide) sit between the header and footer (which are both page wide. I would like to have the widget areas in the footer sit so they align with the edges of the content area.
(here is a layout i am trying to accomplish: http://wptest.gadgetwebdesign.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/ESS_Layout.gif)
I just can't seem to figure out what is controlling the placement of those widgets on the page. I want the background of those widgets to be white, but I want to keep the dark green above the widgets.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to accomplish what I am going for?
