    anyone know why it seems like the credits don't want to show up in 3 column layouts?

    Well they can do. But positioning the footer in 3 column layouts is complicated territory. I have used nested floats and two clearer divs in the past to bring down the backgrounds behind the content and menus and close off the container before the footer but I am not quite satisfied with the result. It might be best to do a google search for some templates.

    also, I'm currently using the dots template found over on alexking's page. I can't seem to figure out how to add more stuff to the right column. Currently everything new I add defaults over to the left column. Any ideas?

    law,
    Define class with id and than tell it where to align, here is how i have mine set up:
    #calendar, #search, #archives, #meta, #categories {
    left: 617px;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    position: absolute;
    width: 150px;
    background: #e8e8e8;
    border: 1px solid #369;
    }
    #calendar {
    top: 0px;
    border: 1px solid #369;
    text-align: center;
    }
    #search {
    top: 165px;
    }
    #archives {
    top: 240px;
    }
    #meta {
    top: 375px;
    }
    #categories {
    top: 495px;

    anothing thing, if you look at my site in IE http://www.taibros.net you'll notice that it spaces out the lettering on the left side, but not on the right side. Anyone know how I can fix this? It looks fine in firefox though.
