Please clarify this. I'm using Atahualpa 3.7.9. The template's instructions are self-contradictory. I go to "Atahualpa Theme Options" | "Add new WIDGET AREAS" and I'm told to "Put the code into ANY of the text areas EXCEPT the first one, named "Center column style"." I go to the "Style & edit CENTER COLUMN" tab, and I'm told that this is no longer allowed due to limitations of WordPress.
I'm not a complete dummy, and I can see

But that was from 2009
. If it's still true, why does the theme options "Add new WIDGET AREAS" page still have obsolete info?
One of the reasons I chose Atahualpa was its ability to retain customizations in the database, so that they are not lost with every theme upgrade. Editing individual files is NOT an option.
So, is there a solution for those of us who need a custom theme area, that does not require manual edits to theme files?
