Column Shortcodes
Advice to us users - what I've learned (2 posts)

    Looks like the plugin developer may have abandoned support so I'll share what I've learned so some of you may benefit.

    This plugin makes columns work using a series of <div> tags which can be very badly placed if you don't get your line breaks right in your post content. I suggest that a column closing tag and the following opening tag appear on the same line in you post content. For example:

    [/one_half][one_half_last padding="0 0 0 10px"]

    This avoids alignment issues and <div> tags appearing where they shouldn't.

    Unfortunately this plugin will inject a final <div class='clear_column'></div> tag inside your last <p> tag which is poor semantic HTML.

    1) Line breaks are always difficult with the current TinyMCE editor. Your solution should work fine.
    2) A clear column should not appear inside a p-tag, I will try and reproduce.

    And we continue to support this plugin. It's listed on VIP WordPress platform and we encourage any developer to contribute on GitHub.
