WP Auto Columns

Wrap block of text with shortcode. It will be split into columns. Automagically.

You need to display your articles in magazine or newspaper style. Use this plugin. You don't have to change your theme files or add styles - just use "table" splitter.

Features

  • fully automatic splitter;
  • create columns in table or div's;
  • tag-aware;
  • splits long paragraphs and unordered lists;
  • keeps text with headers;

Requirements

The plugin requires DOM API (http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.dom.php) and Tidy (http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.tidy.php)

Usage

Wrap block of text with [auto_columns]...[/auto_columns] shortcode. It will produce markup like

<div class="auto-columns-container columns-2">
<div class="auto-columns-column column-1 first-column">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</div>
<div class="auto-columns-column column-2 last-column">Nam tincidunt gravida dui, at bibendum nisl lacinia nec.</div>
<div class="auto-columns-clear"></div>
</div>

In your theme use do_shortcode function:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[auto_columns]' . $content . '[/auto_columns]'); ?>

You will have to define width for .auto-columns-column class in your theme, of course.
