Hi, I remember there being a video tutorial for this, but I cannot seem to find it anymore..? So, how to add additional widget areas, say, another universal widget for example? Thanks in advance!

Do you mean additional sidebars?

This may help, but doing this will become a CSS nightmare. You'll need divine inspiration and probably heavenly help.

I think you're slightly confused. It's the Universal Sidebar, not Universal Widget. The widgets are the things that go into the sidebar. On Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets, the stuff on the right where you see Universal are the sidebars, and the boxes in the middle, like Text Widget, etc are the widgets. Everyone gets this WP thing confused. The link helps you create a new sidebar.
