I'm trying to list my widgets so they run horizontally on my homepage. Not sure if there is a way to do this, or if I'm just not thinking far enough out of the box on my very shallow coding skills.

If you look through the "Limited PHP code" drop down you can find code to create new widget areas. Then you would integrate that code into into a page template.

I have found:
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Header home widget'); ?>
in the style & edit header makes a new widget but if the in_home part is added it stops working, is there another way to do this?

well it took me a couple hours to find it in this forum but the thread was closed so could not post there the extra line you told someone to use to make the widgets show on the home page only, I can't find it again now.

oh you mean they had a php conditional for the homepage like 'if (is_home()) {....}'
so what exactly do you have coded?

@stevinoz

The code you mentioned is for the Atahualpa theme. This is the Monezuma theme thread. Regardless php conditionals are not allowed for new widget areas. You would need to use CSS to display them where you want.

thanks, although I have now stepped up to themeframe to solve the problem.
