I would love to have the ability to place boxes and features in the content template. This would allow me to have my sidebar come up next to my features slider, which would be handy! Currently, I'm having to hack this functionality in with css trickery, and I don't really like doing that!

You can use the free 'boxer' Wordpress plugin - which gives you a shortcode that will allow you to place your boxes anywhere you please, sidebars included. No css needed.

Hi Ocean, Thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to check out this plugin. I've never even heard of it before.

Ocean, I checked that out. Seems to work pretty well... Bummer I had to hack the pagelines core though. I bet there's a way to do it better with custom post types... Maybe one of these days I'll hack that together.
