    Hi,

    I would like to add more Home page widgets.

    I read this guide.

    http://cyberchimps.com/guide/adding-additional-widgets

    And it worked well. However it will only allow you to add 1 single, double or triple set and vary the order. Thats it.

    I would like to be able to add 3 triple widgets and two singles etc. Anyone else know how to do this?

    Thank You for any help

    There is no limit to adding widget areas. Keep in mind that an area can include as many widgets as you want, it just determines positioning. (like a sidebar).

    You'll want to make any of these changes in a child theme, which is very important. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Hi janet4now

    I am using a child theme. Thanks for the link. However with the link I provided the procedure creates 5 php files in the child theme.

    sidebar-home-widgets-triple.php
    sidebar-home-widgets-double.php
    sidebar-home-widget-single.php
    front-page.php
    functions.php

    There is something in there that is limiting the use of each widget style to one.

    The link you provided gives you an example. To vary from that example, you'll need to use the instructions of the link I sent you.

    OK now I have the required number of widgets. Added the code to responsive_child: sidebar-home-widgets-triple.php and responsive_child: Theme Functions (functions.php).

    But as can be seen do not line up ??? Probably something newbie

    Thank You

    There is an extra class of .fit added to the widgets 7 thru 12.

    The .fit class should only be added to the last widget in the row.

    Remove from widget #'s 7,8,10,11 and it should line up for you.
