Other two columns are used as a left and right sidebar, featuring custom category widgets.

Advertisement Support : The blog or magazine mostly uses banners and adsense banner to make earning out of the visitors who comes to read articles. But for that you need to have some good banner areas which comes into user attention naturally, it is either possible by custom plugins or by built-in functionality.

All banner areas visible on the demo are powered by widgets, and here you can insert advertisement code from back-end options panel. There are two widgets available for header with different size 728×90 (wide), 234×90 (small). There is a banner location given between homepage and by showing ads between homepage contents you cane expect more clicks from the visitors and your banner will mix up with real featured articles and won’t look like advertisement.
