I made a new widget area in the header and put it below the logo and header image like this:

%logo %pages %image <?php bfa_widget_area('name=New widget area'); ?>

Is there a way I can put a background image behind this? Or just set a background color? It seems to be using the "body" style when I want the style to match the "center column" style. Yet there's no way to put a widget area in the center column.

Thanks!

You can put a widget area in the center column just add the code to ATO>Style & Edit CENTER COLUMN>Content ABOVE the LOOP.

Awesome! Thanks. That worked. Now is there a way to set left/right margins for a widget area? Or do I need to make a three-celled widget area and set the width of the left/right cells, leaving them empty?

You should be able to style the widget area with the following if you named it New widget area.
HTML Code:
#New_widget_area {
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 5px;
}
Etc. Etc.

So simple. So elegant. Thanks.

Oh, and I had to un-capitalize it to get it to work, like this....

#new_widget_area {
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 5px;
}

Thanks again.
