Strategies for pages / posts with multiple content regions

  • I’m looking for strategies for handling sites / templates with more than one dynamic content region on a page.

    SCENARIO:
    I have a two column layout. The left column is a “content” column and the right column is a “media” column.

    OBJECTIVE:
    Using the admin panel, what’s the best way to get photo_A and photo_B in the right column of post_1. I want the client to be able to do this on their own posts/pages so hard coding the template and using HTML mode in the editor is out.

    TEMPORARY SOLUTION 1:
    Use CSS to float images off to the right side bar:

    .entry img { float: right; clear: right; margin-right: -200px; }

    TEMPORARY SOLUTION 2:
    Absolute positioning which is even worse in my opinion.

    DESIRED SOLUTION:
    In the write/manage tool define a second editable region so “content” goes in one editable region and “media” is added to the second editable region via the Media Gallery.

    Thanks,
    David S. Webster
