What is going inside of those boxes? The PageLines boxes will not work for you? For the footer you need to edit some css since you want to change the number of columns. You can go ahead and add all those widgets to the footer columns widget area and add this css ` .dcol_5 { margin-left: 20px; width: 176px; } ` (this is default)...so modify the width until all of your widgets are present.

Hi, Would love the answer to the Boxes question as well. I understand that it can be achieved with sizing the images in photoshop and some CSS w/firebug tweaks. BUT. Changing the CSS will also change the other Box Sets i have which i want to keep as is.
