Custom Content Dashboard Widget: Custom Width


the WP dashboard seem to have 2 columns of widgets.

Is there any way of having the custom content widget span 2 columns a the very top or bottom so that it's twice a wide?

Many thanks,

    Hiya Ralf,

    I don't know of anyway to make a widget span multiple columns, but the "Screen Options" for Dashboard (located at the top right under username and logout) allow you to change the number of columns from one to four. Choosing one allows for the widgets to span the entire section.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!
