    Why is a three column dashboard no longer an option with the latest version of WordPress? Is there a way to hack that back?

    Why did you think it wasn’t?

    Because since updating to 3.4 when I check “Screen Options” the only Screen Layout options are 1 or 2 columns.

    I can’t see 3 columns as an option. Is it an invisible option?

    That’s because the third column is the left hand menu – which always has to be there. The rest of the page is then split into 1 or 2 columns.

    I had three columns plus the left hand menu before the update to 3.4.

    Not via the core Screen Options you didn’t. There has only ever been a choice of 1 or 2 columns.

    Um, yes. Via the core Screen Options I did. I reverted one of my blogs back to 3.3.2 and got a screen capture for you.

    Why did I have an option of up to 4 columns with 3.3.2 and only up to 2 columns with 3.4?

    I have the option of 1-4 columns (On all my sites, using 3.4)…. that’s not the norm?

    It depends (and always has depended) upon the width of your screen. If you don’t have a browser window big enough for 3 or 4 columns, you won’t get those options. Nothing has changed as far as I know.

    O I C!

    I cant see 3 column on screen.

    Make your screen wider.

    And nothing has changed that I heard of either. it auto adjusts when I’m on Big Bertha (my big monitor) nicely.

    My screen size has not changed. My screen resolution has not changed. I am viewing my blog running 3.3.2 and my blog running 3.4 on the exact same browser. The blog running 3.3.2 has the option of up to four columns (and I’ve been running it with three). The blog running 3.4 only has the option of up to two columns.

    The only thing that has changed is the version of WordPress each blog is running.

    Esmi – which is it?

    Have I only ever had the option of 1 or 2 columns or has 3 or 4 columns always been an option depending on screen size?

    Sorry – I have my browser window at a set size and, what with it being almost midnight last night when I replied to you, I forgot that the number of potential columns increases as the screen/viewport widens. Nothing has changed in this version of WordPress.
