Widget formatting? Currently macros line up serially, I want them side-by-side.

Hi, I know this is probably a VERY basic and silly question, but I cannot find the answer ANYWHERE in the documentation and I've been going in loops through the pages in the current documentation literally for hours.

I have two widgets on my page that I added using the Widget Connector macro. Currently they show up one above the other on the published page (photos from Flikr and the weather). I want them to show up side by side. What they are showing is definitely small enough to do so.

Please, can anyone tell me how to format these to show up in the same row versus one above the other?

Use the columns macro and place each widget in a separate column.



Wow- thank you! I am trying to rapidly learn about wiki markup, etc., and had just found the nested macro info, but couldn't put it all together. I have been trying to figure this out for about 4 hours, I *knew* it had to be dead simple, but I couldn't get it. Took me about ~3 minutes to get exactly what I wanted (which includes figuring out that I needed to nest the columns in the section macro first). Thank you so much.

You are welcome! I am happy to help.
