Hi bazo0oka,

Thanks for your question,

I'd like to explain about three concepts: region, sidebar & panel:

- Region: is a normal Drupal region like header, footer, highlighted, ...
- Sidebar: it is also a region, additionaly we create a method to help user can add any more sidebar they like to make the layout become 2 columns, 3 columns, 4 columns, ... easily.
- Panel: some regions appear in the sample line, and we can put it anywhere in our site

For more clearly about these concepts, you could go through http://www.themebrain.com/guide/how-build-custom-layout and focus on the examples layout




Thxx and please disable the PHP Filter because its very dangerous to be enabled for the normal users


ok but ... please, the suggest link "http://www.themebrain.com/guide/how-build-custom-layout" seems doens't works corretc! Error 404 flash on my eyes :-)
