    HOW CAN I ADD EXTRA WIDGET or COLUMN to the Left side,,,below the red menu,,
    • BloggerSpice
      Walaikumussalam...Rashed vai I have understood..but if you add an extra sidebar then your vertical menu won't work. And your template is responsive which is good for mobile device also. so adding extra sidebar it won't be a wise decision. However you can use different template. You can check my owned designed template http://www.bloggerspice.com/search/label/Templates..
