[SOLVED] Split right sidebar to 2 sidebars

Hi all,

Can I ask how to split right sidebar widget area to 2 widget areas? I want to split it to 2 rows: top and bottom rows.

basically like this:

top row widget area
bottom row widget area

I know we can add extra widget in header, center column or footer, but I don't know how to add it in the existing sidebars.

Actually I want to do it cos I want to add separate backgrounds for the widgets. I want the top row widgets to have transparent background and the bottom row widgets to have colored background

Thanks in advance

You could just use CSS to color the individual widgets backgrounds

well, i thought about that.
but what about if the widget is just an arbitrary text or html?

can we just use <body bgcolor="#FF0000">arbitrary text or html</body>?

sorry I'm quite new to wordpress coding so I'm not sure yet of what i'm doing

ah, now I know I can use the

<div style="background-color:#ffffff; padding: 0px;">arbitrary text or html</div>

and put it in the widget, but the problem is I want to apply the background to the widget container and not only the body

is there any way to do that?

each widget should have a unique <div id="..."> you can tag off of.

did you mean i should do it like for example this?

<div id="fb-root" style="background-color:#FFFFFF;">something something</div>

I did it in the appearance=>widget, and still doesn't work. Am I wrong?
