I would like to add 3 or 4 text widgets side by side on my site but cant for the life of me work out how. The site produced by someone else managed 3 text widgets side by side but every time I try to add more than one widget, it gets added vertically.

Even in a 2 column view, it does not seem to work how I want it.

Hello Stuart

To achieve this all you need to do is to use the Column Divider Widget. When you drag and drop it onto your page, you will get two columns. If you want more columns, you just add another Column Divider Widget into one of the columns of the existing Column Divider Widget. This way you can get 3 columns. If you add another one into the other column of the first Column Divider WIdget, you will get 4 columns. You can then adjust the width by moving the middle lines.

Then you can add any other widget, e.g. a Text Widget, into one of the columns. I suppose it will work best if you choose a page layout with one column.

The three columns I needed were in the Layouts
