    See here for the three layout choices the Blaskan theme has. You have the single column layout because you placed the widgets in the Footer Widget Area http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/blaskan/

    I just discovered that I’m limited when it comes to the number of widgets I can place in “The primary sidebar”. I now have the two column layout because of the number of widgets I used. I expected to see three columns so maybe there is something “funky” going on with this theme. I have flagged it so it gets moved to the Themes Forum where we can get support from Themes Staff.

    Themes Staff:
    There appears to be something odd going on with the theme. I ought to have 3 layout choices but I don’t. If place all widgets in the Primary Widget Area I get a single column display. If I move the last two widgets out of the Primary Widget Area into the Secondary Widget Area then I get a two column display.

    Hi there, I had a look a your site http://deepthoughts123.wordpress.com/ in Firefox, Chrome and Safari. In all three browsers, I see your sidebar in the right-hand column, not at the bottom.

    Did you make a change to your theme setup that solved your issue, perhaps following one of timethief’s suggestions, or are you still having a display problem?

    If you’re still seeing the issue, would it be possible to upload a screenshot to help in troubleshooting?

    Here’s a guide on how to make a screenshot, if you’re not sure: http://en.support.wordpress.com/make-a-screenshot/

    You can upload the screenshot in your Media Library and then post a link so I can see it.

    Also, could you please let me know in which browser/version you’re seeing this problem. If you’re not sure which you’re using, please visit this page and see what it says under “Web Browser”: http://supportdetails.com/

    Thanks very much.

    @timethief,

    Do you still have the layout issue you had? It works for me as expected though. When either one of primary or secondary widget area has a widget, we get two column layout, when both widget areas have widgets, we get three column layout.

    No, it’s not working properly. It’s still doing exactly what I stated above.

    I want to have these widgets all in the primary sidebar:
    Welcome
    Recent Posts
    Search
    Recent Comments
    Visitors
    Copyright

    When I set them up that way I get all the widgets displaying in the footer area despite the fact I placed NONE in the secondary sidebar area or in the footer area.

    If I move these two widgets (Visitors and Copyright) out of the primary widget area and into the secondary sidebar, then I get what I expected when I placed all widgets in the primary sidebar area ie. a single sidebar display!

    @timethief,

    Thanks for reporting this. I can now confirm it has a bug for narrower screen sizes (I was testing wider screen before, sorry!). I filed a bug ticket and we’ll working on it as soon as possible.
