Column Shortcodes

Adds shortcodes to easily create columns in your posts or pages.

How do I add a column shortcode?

Standard The easiest way is to use the added icon on the top of your editor ( right next to the media icon ). This will open a popup window from which you can select a column icon by clicking on one of the shortcodes.

Manual You could also type in the shortcode yourself inside the editor. The following shortcodes are available:

[full_width][/full_width]
[one_half][/one_half]
[one_half_last][/one_half_last]
[one_third][/one_third]
[one_third_last][/one_third_last]
[two_third][/two_third]
[two_third_last][/two_third_last]
[one_fourth][/one_fourth]
[one_fourth_last][/one_fourth_last]
[three_fourth][/three_fourth]
[three_fourth_last][/three_fourth_last]
[one_fifth][/one_fifth]
[one_fifth_last][/one_fifth_last]
[two_fifth][/two_fifth]
[two_fifth_last][/two_fifth_last]
[three_fifth][/three_fifth]
[three_fifth_last][/three_fifth_last]
[four_fifth][/four_fifth]
[four_fifth_last][/four_fifth_last]
[one_sixth][/one_sixth]
[one_sixth_last][/one_sixth_last]

Another option Another way to add shortcodes is to switch to HTML-view. On the top of editor you will now see all the shortcodes listed. By default these buttons are hidden. If you'd like to use them you can add this to your theme's functions.php:

add_filter('add_shortcode_html_buttons', '__return_true' );

Where do I add my content?

When you have selected a shorcode it will be placed in you editor. You will see something like this:

[one_half][/one_half]

Make sure to place your content (text/images etc. ) between the two shortcodes, like so:

[one_half]My content goes here...[/one_half]

My existing theme uses the same shortcodes, how can I solve this?

You can prefix the shortcode by placing the following in your functions.php. Problem solved =)

add_filter( 'cpsh_prefix', 'set_shortcode_prefix' );
function set_shortcode_prefix() {
    return 'myprefix_'; // edit this part if needed
}

How can I hide the Padding Settings?

In patch 0.6 we added padding settings (optional) to the plugin. If you would like to hide this settings menu you can place the following in your functions.php

add_filter( 'cpsh_hide_padding_settings', '__return_true' );

How can I hide certain Column Shortcodes from the menu?

If you would like to hide certain column from the menu; place the following in your functions.php

function hide_column_shortcodes( $shortcodes ) {

    /* uncomment ( remove the '//' ) any of the following to remove it's shortcode from menu */

    // unset( $shortcodes['full_width'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['one_half'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['one_third'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['one_fourth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['two_third'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['three_fourth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['one_fifth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['two_fifth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['three_fifth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['four_fifth'] );
    // unset( $shortcodes['one_sixth'] );

    return $shortcodes;
}
add_filter( 'cpsh_column_shortcodes', 'hide_column_shortcodes' );

How can I replace the default Shortcode CSS stylesheet?

You can easily overwrite the existing stylesheet. For example you would like to add a margin between your columns, you just place the following in your theme's style.css:

.one_half {
    width: 49% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.one_half.last_column {
    width: 49% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.one_third {
    width: 32% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.one_third.last_column {
    width: 32% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.two_third {
    width: 66% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.two_third.last_column {
    width: 66% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.one_fourth {
    width: 23.5% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.one_fourth.last_column {
    width: 23.5% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.three_fourth {
    width: 74.5% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.three_fourth.last_column {
    width: 74.5% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.one_fifth {
    width: 18.4% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.one_fifth.last_column {
    width: 18.4% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.two_fifth {
    width: 39% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.two_fifth.last_column {
    width: 39% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.three_fifth {
    width: 59% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.three_fifth.last_column {
    width: 59% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.four_fifth {
    width: 79.6% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.four_fifth.last_column {
    width: 79.6% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
.one_sixth {
    width: 15% !important;
    margin-right: 2% !important;
}
.one_sixth.last_column {
    width: 15% !important;
    margin-right: 0px !important;
}
