Add Third Column to Blogger

Adding Third Column to your Blogger/Blogspot blog

Personally, I have liked this tutorial because it gives me more space to add some ads and categories, if you want to add a new column to your blogger just do the following steps.

1. Got to "Template" > "Edit HTML".

2. Save your current template by clicking on "Download Full Template", this tep is very important to back up your template if you did any mistakes.

3. Find this code;

#content-wrapper {
width: 760px;
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 0 0 15px;
text-align: left;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
border: 1px solid $borderColor;
border-top: 0;
}
#main-wrapper {
margin-left: 14px;
width: 464px;
float: left;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
display: inline; /* fix for doubling margin in IE */
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
#sidebar-wrapper {
margin-right: 14px;
width: 240px;
float: right;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
display: inline; /* fix for doubling margin in IE */
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}

4. Replace it with this code;

#content-wrapper {
width: 760px;
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 0 0 15px;
text-align: justify;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
border: 1px solid $borderColor;
border-top: 0;
}
#main-wrapper {
margin-left: 10px;
width: 386px;
float: left;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
display: inline; /* fix for doubling margin in IE */
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
#sidebar-wrapper {
margin-right: 10px;
width: 165px;
float: right;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
display: inline; /* fix for doubling margin in IE */
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}
#newsidebar-wrapper {
margin-left: 10px;
width: 165px;
float: left;
background-color: $mainBgColor;
display: inline; /* fix for doubling margin in IE */
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */
}

5. Find this line;

<div id='main-wrapper'>

and right above it, add this code;

<
div id='newsidebar-wrapper'>
<
b:section class='sidebar' id='newsidebar' preferred='yes'>
<
b:widget id='NewProfile' locked='false' title='About Me' type='Profile'/>
<
/b:section>
<
/div>

6. Save and view your template, add a new element at your new column and view the template. It will be something like this template's
blog you're reading.
