Hi jasonF,

Could you describe more details for the question?
Are you going to style the archive page format, please try Views WordPress Archive:

The problem is that I can't display wordpress archives or product categories in a custom layout, so i have looked at categories and search.php and I have been able to add custom layout to the page but i need to add widgets to the area.

These links demonstrate:

hidden link ( this is a custom layout with widgets in the headerbar.

hidden link ( I can't add a layout to this so i have edited search.php in order to allow consistent layout)

the second link doesn't have a widget area and I need to find a way of adding a widget area code into the php - is this possible or can you help me to get the search results, categories and product categories to display in a layout?

Thanks.

Thanks for the details, I have put it into our to-do list as a feature request.

Currently I suggest you try create custom theme files for categories archive pages and search result pages, and put the sidebar/widget into it
Template file used to render a Category Archive Index page

category-{slug}.php - If the category's slug were news, WordPress would look for category-news.php
category-{id}.php - If the category's ID were 6, WordPress would look for category-6.php
category.php
archive.php
index.php

Search Result display

search.php

I am editing the search.php, how would i add a widget area to this?

My mistake, I am editing the header.php file which I have managed to construct almost identically to my custom layout but how would I add a widget area to the header?

It is depends on your theme file, could you create a test site and fill below private details box with the login details, also point out the problem widget and sidebar, I need test in a live website.
