Add an additional Top region

Im trying to add an additional region to the top area of my drupal template.

I did the following, but the region will not appear.


Added at top4 region as follows:

regions[top1] = Top 1 regions[top2] = Top 2 regions[top3] = Top 3 regions[top4] = Top 4

In page.tpl.php

Added the region to the php code as follows:

<div class="cleared reset-box"></div> <center><?php if (!empty($banner1)) { echo '<div id="banner1">'.render($banner1).'</div>'; } ?></center> <?php echo art_placeholders_output(render($top1), render($top2), render($top3), render($top4)); ?> <div class="laudcontent-layout"> 

Unfortunately still only top1, top2, and top3 appear. Top4 is not present.

I also did some looking around on the forums and tried the following trick:

<?php if ($new_block): ?>  <?php print $new_block; ?>  <?php endif; ?> 

Top4 was present then, but in a completely separate block. This is not what Im looking for, as I am hoping to accomplish 4 top blocks each occupying 25% of the available top block real estate.

Im probably just missing some simple code, but I am too simple to know what that is! Assistance is appreciated.

Hello again.

To illustrate what I am having a problem with, I am attempting to modify the appearance of the items here, highlighted in blue. I wish to make them look like a single banner, but with 4 clickable locations that alternate as needed. I am using the Drupal Ads module to display the images and handle redirection to different areas of the site.

I have created 4 regions for them, highlighted in green. These regions however are not inline, but rather are cascading down the document.

I wish them to behave more like the default top regions, highlighted in red, in terms of how they display in a line, but want them to be free of any background, as if they were another banner region, highlighted in green.

Hope this helps clarify what I'm looking for so I can get some responses. Im OK with basic code, but I cant seem in this case to locate how Artisteer is formatting all of these various issues so that I can customize and adjust as needed.

The URL of the page I am trying to modify is

Thank you in advance.
