    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to add a second sidebar on the right hand side of my wordpress site (twenty eleven theme). In other words have the blog/ home page with the content on the left and then followed be two sidebars on the right.

    Here' my URL http://addblog.co.za/

    Any ideas or suggestions will be hugely appreciated.

    you are heading for a big job involving html, css, and php.

    only one idea:

    split the existing sidebar - then adjust formatting to allow for more space.

    new suggested sidebar.php code: http://pastebin.com/VHMDQwgx

    minimal css:

    .left-subside { flaot: left; width: 45%; margin-right: 10%; }
    .right-subside { float: left; width: 45%; }

    plus any changes to the width of the site/content/sidebar.

    you also need to register the new sidebar (no 5 ?) or re-register the whole lot of widget areas to have a more consistent arrangement in the appearance widget section.
