I am new at Orchard. I am creating a web site with about 100 pages which has three columns left (navigation) center (content) and right (extra content).  I created a navigation widget for the default layer so all pages share the same navigation in the left column. However, most pages do not share the same right navigation. How do I organize the website so each individual page have different content in the right column?

One way to do it is to create layers for those pages, but 100 is a little too much for that. So the way I would do it is by creating a custom part that I would add to the page content type. That part would dispatch a shape to the zone on the right. An example of this can be found here: http://weblogs.asp.net/bleroy/archive/2011/03/26/dispatching-orchard-shapes-to-arbitrary-zones.aspx
