This is a "pathetic" portlet that has only one purpose: to show left or right columns if there are not (yet) any portlets present.
When making themes etc., you often dont have the contents that makes columns show. This product adds an empty portlet to avoid that.
Should work with both Plone 3 & 4
To install, add
eggs = medialog.portlet.placeholder
zcml = medialog.portlet.placeholder
I use it to show logos, images etc in the columns as well
