Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up content columns, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…In this lesson well address the general Content Wrapper.…That includes both the primary content dive on the left.…And the sidebar on the right just as WordPress uses a file…stored in the theme folder called…header.php to contain all the header elements.…The code for the main content area.…Including all the recent posts, is in…another file, also stored in the theme folder.…This file has…the name of index.php.…Not to be confused with the main…index.php, which is stored in the WordPress root.…
To customize this, we're going to need to…copy the index.php from the custom theme folder.…And paste it in the Roux theme folder. Let's open up our Files panel and Expand…that and drill down into Custom here's index.php…I'll copy that and let's put that…into Roux let me close up the images here so we can suggest the file names.…There we go so there is our index.php looks…good and I'll go to this now I need to close out the main index.php…and reopen it so that Dreamweaver can pick up the change that we just made.…
And part of that process is discovering the related files.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
