Putting Content In A Second Column (7 posts)

    Howdy. I am trying to find a theme with three columns that allows me to put smaller stories as a headline and first paragraph in one of the secondary columns.

    Kind of like a newspaper that has the main stories taking up the bulk of the page and smaller stories in a narrow column on the side.

    Every three column template i've seen just puts things like the archive and blog roll in one column and the 'about' section or a calendar or something in the other secondary column.

    I'm a total n00b and know nothing about css to rewrite templates. Does anyone know of something like this? Thanks for any help

    Use the "Sideblog" plugin. With it, you can post whatever you like using the "Sideblog" category and it will show up in the sidebar.

    Hmmm, actually it's not what I'm looking for. This plugin posts anything in the asides category in the selected column, as is.

    I want to post articles as asides in summary form, with the title of the article being hyperlinked to showing the full article. Or even a hyperlinked title and 1-2 line description underneath, separate from the article.

    Do you know a plugin or way of doing that? Thanks

    I think you can archived that with default RSS widget (custom category or tag feed from your blog). just my 2 cents

    Either RSS widget as @chaoskaizer suggested
    or a new post loop with excerpt RSS/content RSS running.
