There may be a few ways to do it. The only that immediately come to mind is as follows:

1) Create your own theme which places the "left blocks" on the right and then you control that right-hand column through blocks.

2) Use a standard "Center Up" block for the top block.

3) The bottom part can be a little trickier. You may have to write a module to place the content that you want and then make that module be your default Home page module instead of News.

Definitely some work, but doable.

Unfortunately, I am not a theme person either. I can now code one, now that I have been through some modifications to one, but it is just to "creative" for me... Laughing

If I were you and didnt want to spend the considerable cash that it would most likely take to get this done as you wanted. I would do this

I would use a theme and only use the left blocks. I would simply invert the sides used in the example site from right to left.

Then I would do as montego said and use the center up block for the top block.

Then I would use html and create another center block or module that would show the information as you want. You can use tables to set it up to look like it does with the double colum of games that are clickable to the next url. That would not be hard to do and would achieve the same look that you want for a lot less money. More time on your part but a lot less cash. Module would be my choice for this and then set that module to be in home instead of news. Wink

I would of course pay me to make you a very cool theme to make your site special and stand out from the rest Embarassed Dance-Y ROTFL

He could do that of course but it would not be a big deal to use the left blocks and no right blocks either. Its all a personal choice. I was just trying to give him the option with the least amount of code change since he is unsure of code at this point.

im sorry jaded...i now think i know what u meant....in the admin/blocks panel...did u mean not to have any at all set to left?..this is possible and would do the same thing...they would only need to code somethin in the event of wanting left blocks somewhere but not everywhere.
