Hi Tianran,

The answer is simple: you can't.
wmii doesn't allow empty columns (or empty views, or empty frames),
since this doesn't fit in the dynamical WM approach (see for more information). Ion's
approach is much more static, so this might take some getting used to
for an ion user (I've used ion too for some time, so I know where
you're coming from). After getting used to it, the dynamic approach
seems to make much more sense however (to me at least :-)

Greetings, Sander.
