Columns DIY

Simple shortcodes for div-based columns and rows. Wrap desired content in [column][/column]. Mark the end of a row with [endrow]. CSS not included.

  1. Upload the columns-diy folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

There are a few different options for adding the CSS to style your columns:

  • Edit the style file in your theme (probably style.css). This is not recommended if you are using a third-party theme such as a commercial theme or one downloaded from the WordPress Theme Directory. Your changes will be lost if/when you update the theme to a new version.
  • Create a child theme.
  • Use a plugin such as CSS & JavaScript Toolbox to embed the styles without modifying your theme.
  • Use the style parameter in the [column] shortcode to add inline styles. Only recommended for "one-off" scenarios (and how often does a "one-off" remain that way?).
