If i understand you correctly, you mean something like the picture i attached. If so, go to AdminCP -> vBulletin CMS -> Section Manager and change the desired section to a 3 column layout. You can add/edit the grids and layouts under the vBulletin CMS as well

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

To find the template to modify, do this - vboptions > General Settings > Add Template Name in HTML Comments > set to Yes . Then go back to your page and view the source code and you will see the name of the template called around your part of the code. (Sometimes the template is the one mentioned at the very top of the page source.)

I can imagine you want that, as the CMS frontpage layout is not really well thought of from a designer point of view,

for one thing the "read more" button is not ligned out if you use more than one column for your layout, which is not so nice.

I am busy writing a custom style, with nice margins etc

But a quick solution for this:
Go to template:

vbcms_content_article_preview

depending on your layout place the contents of the article preview image/text between


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then go to vbcms.css and put:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In this example the readmore buttons will be placed at a minimum of 265px beneath the title, even if there is no more text to show (the height is all depending on the length of your preview text and the max width of your images)
