    As stymiee said the design part and the choice of a 2 col or 3 col is tightly tied to the content for some sites a 2 col is better for other 3coloumns is a nicer choice

    I agree with Stymiee and DT, though as far as design goes I do not see one as being better than the other.

    I could design a 3 column layout that does not look as good as someone elses 2 column design.

    Then it really comes down to personal taste. I might like the other guys 2 column layout better than my 3 column, but he may think mine the better looking of the 2.

    Others, definately. You really don't know which design will be best until you don't have the content.

    It also depends on the type of features etc you want to display.

    I would also say that it depends on the content, and the amount of features that you want to have. If you only have a latest posts, login and search next to the main column. Then i don't see why you would need 3 columns.

    But if you have lets say 7 items you would like to display next to your main column. Then you might be better of using a 3 column layout, that way you can spread the items out more evenly over the left and right side. I personaly think its a lot better to have 4 items on the left side and 3 on the right side, then to have 7 of them on one side.

    If you have the content to fill up 3 columns use it. If not use two. It is the content that people look for not the number of columns.
