I think I may be screwing up my terminology here, because I'm having no luck finding an answer despite searching - sorry!

I am building a CMS page that is using recent article widgets as, essentially, sections on the Home Page. All that is working fine, except I need to make them all a fixed size, regardless of how much content is or isn't posted. So say I have 10 recent article widgets, each pointing to a different area, I would like to be able to display them in two columns, each five widgets long, with each widget being of uniform size with the others. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated - I think it's got to be simple, but I am just not seeing it :(

A basic widget fills the area that you put it into in your layout. If you want things to be fixed size, then you need to create a grid that is how you want it with fixed width columns and then create a layout from that grid and put the widgets in there.

Thanks Lynne. Do you know of any resources that will help show me how to make a grid that involves not just columns, but rows as well?

Edit: Just realized this may be opaque - it's the height that is giving me trouble, not the width.
