Our themes offer 3 different Site-Wide Layout options that can be loaded with one click:
- 3 Column Layout – Left & Right Sidebars, One Column (center)
- 2 Column Layout – Left Sidebar, One Column (right)
- 2 Column Layout – Right Sidebar, One Column (left)
Each theme also offers one custom Page layout option (only for Pages, not Posts) for you to select from when creating a Page. This one is particularly useful when you want to display something large without sidebars in the way!
- One Column, No Sidebars
Should I use Posts or Pages? This is a common question, so we wanted to answer it here breifly.
Site-Wide Layout Options
3 Column Layout
Ideal for sites where sidebar space is at a premium. The 3 column layout displays the header menu and Featured Post Area, a left and a right sidebar, and the blog roll down the center. The sidebars are sized to allow display of a number of standard IAC ad sizes in each sidebar, and plenty of room for custom navigation menus.

Pages are optimal in WordPress for displaying content in a specific and custom way that is unique from other pages, or can’t be done as well in the format of a Post. Pages also do not get displayed in your blog roll – perfect for things like your About Us, Contact, Support or other static content areas.
Posts are optimal in WordPress for conveying information that you want to have show up in your home page blog roll, like Travel Event announcements, new Trip Posts you want your readers to find and new blog posts or features you want to launch.
