Love the Simplicity and Control
By , for WP 3.8.1

As stated, this plugin does one thing really well. I love how easy this is to use to get the exact formatting I'm looking for. Just great!

If you'd like a shortcode insert button to keep coding super simple, take a look at Grid Columns Media Button

great except columns not aligned in IE8
By , for WP 3.8

I'm pretty sure wp_autop inserts an unneeded paragraph closing tag, that results in invalid html & IE8 display problems. To work around this issue, I created a column container shortcode like this:

function column_container_shortcode($atts, $content) {
        return do_shortcode($content);
add_shortcode('column_container', 'column_container_shortcode')

Then, I enclose the columns inside [column_container][/column_container], which applies the shortcode_unautop filter to the combined columns. I don't have the luxury of ignoring IE8 problems.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

Something easy for my client to use.
Thank you.

Useful to know that you would want to make the grid return to 1 column on mobile devices, by using this code:

@media screen and (max-width: 650px) {

.column {
width: 100%!important;


In your theme style sheet.

Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is an extremely powerful plugin. Its better than everything else in the market in the sense it helps you to have custom spans in an unlimited sort of way.

one major downside - no use for post category pages
By , for WP 3.4.2

.. it would have been soooo nice, to have something so useful and easy as this grid columns plugin - for the place one probably wants to have this columns option the most, the post categories pages!

Any cnace there's a solution to that as well??

Marvelous time saver
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is the perfect plugin for creating columns on the fly. It's easy to use, super simple and since Justin coded it, I don't even have to dig into the code. I know that it will be work as promised and the code generated will be valid. Thanks
