I read in the docs:
"There are times when you need to have a block next to a block. Perhaps you want to have a survey inline with your content block. Perhaps you're trying to put headshots next to bio-blurbs and you don't want to use a table in the content editor. Add a layout to your block area to turn a single block area into many:
The layouts tool from the block area will divide the area into as many parts as you want and give you draggable sliders to control the positioning. "
I would like to try this out as an alternative to creating a lot of different theme pages, but I can't figure out how to use it. I added some content areas to the main block of the page, but I can't figure out how to either add a layout to the block area, or see the layouts tool. thanks.
feeling a little dumb, to ask: Can you point me to a theme (or is one like this already installed with c5) where I can actually change the layout in the head and foot area (it seems I can only do this in the main area) of the page?
thank you for your help. I will consider the layout you suggested.
By now I also found - somewhere in the forum - that it's not possible to change the layout (witdth) of global areas as I can do in regular areas. I don't understand why this is denied to the "end"-user and is needed to be hard-coded by the designer, but ... well, let's say it would be a wish for a next version.
