I have the same problem as NewNewbie. The plugin gives me a double column. Even tried a newer plugin with the same results.

Hi Hyperspace,
You didn't add {$sidebar} in your template and because of that it was not showing latest post.
I added that variable and it is showing now Wink

Also you have not uploaded focus images folder inside FTP.

Thanks for fixing it. I added {$sidebar} when I tried it but removed it after it didn't work right. It looks like my error was not uploading the Focus images.
