Start by installing and activating the Widgets in Columns plugin.

Go to Appearance, Widgets to configure the plugin.

Next drag a widget that you want to display in a column and you will see a width setting.

Pick a desired width for the widget, if you pick 1/3 then you are going to have three columns with widgets.

You can also add an icon for the widget if you want.

Under the row of the widget you can also add a divider widget to start a new row of widgets within the area.

    Nice! Can you make a tutorial "How to set a image on a widget title"?

    I thought this was for the Page or Post areas. That would make sense. But why would you want to divide a widget area that is already a third of your page's width in to three third columns? You would barely have enough room in each column to write two or at best three words across each column. Please for sure correct me if I'm misunderstanding this.

    Can this not be used for the main page?

    Even though the plugin hasn't been updated for 6 years it works like a charm! Thank you!
