A metabox for your layout options

It’s no surprise I can be vocal when I am reviewing a theme. Many know that I’ll spurt out what I end up seeing in a lot of themes. There is one thing that really does drive me crazy though and that is when people copy and paste code to their theme without actually knowing…
