Three Columns

When we planned the theme in the earlier tutorial our home page was designed to have a sidebar on each side, we are going to add and create another layout, not as just the home page but as a template page that can be applied to any blog page, with both the left and the right sidebars.

In this tutorial we will be identifying the structure and the styles we need to change for our three column layout, we will work with four sidebars both the wide and narrow sidebars.
