How 3 col templates affect the Page Elements Screen

Many of you are no doubt aware how easy it is to add and delete page elements on your blog thanks to those clever folk at blogger. No more faffing around with templates and dreaded HTML code (actually, I quite enjoyed that part but that's another story!).

Some of you may not have had the chance to play with a 3 column template while using classic blogger, so it may seem even more daunting now to switch to a 3 column template in blogger beta. But honestly, it has never been easier! And when you switch to a 3 column template, here's one of the fun things that will change slightly but thankfully continue to work.

Adding a 3rd column has an obvious but interesting effect on the Page Elements Screen. For example, look at these screenshots:- the one on the right was taken while using a 2 column template; the one on the left was taken while using a 3 column.

Immediately you can see from the screenshot on the left, that the Page Elements Screen picks up the 3rd column. Thankfully this facility will function as normal and you can continue to use the Page Elements Screen as before by simply dragging and dropping the elements with your mouse.

So I can happily report that there's nothing to be scared of. Although the Page Elements Screen looks a little funky with the extra column, it works just fine!
