Foundation Columns

Description

Adds support for using Zurb’s Foundation grid-system via shortcodes in WordPress’ TinyMCE editor.

For more information about Foundation, please read the docs.

This plugin is compatible with version 5 and version 6 of Foundation, and includes support for small, medium and large breakpoints.

Now also with support for block grids.

Modifying the grid

If your grid has more than the default 12 columns you can use the foundation_columns_count filter.

add_filter( 'foundation_columns_count', function($count) {
  $count = 16;
  return $count;
} );

FAQ

How do I use the grid?

Simply highlight a section of text in your Visual Editor while creating a new or editing a page and click the “Zurb”-icon in the editor’s toolbar. Follow the steps and the shortcodes should be inserted around your selected text.

I don’t want small and medium, just the large breakpoint. How do I do it?

If you don’t want all the breakpoints you can just click “OK” while prompted for a number. This will tell the plugin to skip adding those breakpoints.

Text that I don’t put in columns are not aligned with rest of the site.

Foundation Columns adds a row to posts where the shortcode is detected. Recommended is that you put all your content in columns to make sure it gets the right padding.
