One of the trickier hacks I've spent time on was getting the layout you see here at TypePad Hacks… A three column blog with both sidebars on the right. It's been one of the more popular hacks tutorials, and it's also been one that has generated the most email and comments when it didn't quite come together for people.
Well, it's just been added as a standard layout that you can set up in the design wizard for Basic TypePad blogs! Yay! I'm actually going to rebuild this blog when I get a chance, using the new layout in basic and then porting over my other custom code after converting to advanced. That shouuld solve some of the other problems I had when I built the layout from scratch (mainly the issue of having the comment post and preview show up in the wrong column).
Thanks to Shawn at the Metropolitan Museum of Art who called to let me know it had been added!
