Thank you for your help so far…I am possibly not seeing the wood for the trees now !
This is the layout for the pages I wish to achieve. I have 19 to re-create instead of using posts
To use the page template with right sidebar do I do the following?
Go to appearance – choose widgets and keep placing additional advanced text widgets and reference the unique page title for each one.
(Adding text, formatting and images etc is does not seem as straight forward as adding it on the main WP page screen )
So is this the best way or is using the technique as described here http://demo.styledthemes.com/preference/inline-columns/ better? This is what I used for the test page.
Thank you again
