The Genesis Style Shortcodes plugin enables you to easily add button, content box, and column shortcodes to the posts
and pages of your Genesis child theme. View the demo.
This plugin utilizes shortcodes. In this case, they are an alternative to adding the styles via CSS, which many people
are not comfortable touching (I will soon add a page on how to add these same styles using the CSS, which I highly
recommend learning if you have the time).
Credit: The included column shortcodes are the same as used by the outstanding Column Shortcodes for Genesis Child Themes plugin by Cathy Tibbles.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Will you be adding more shortcodes?
Yes, I also plan to add a TinyMCE addition to easily add the styles.
- What shortcodes will you be adding?
Some on the drawing board are: Pull quotes, tabs and toggles.
- Why aren’t my columns working?
If you are not using a Genesis child theme, or are using an older release that does not include the necessary CSS the column
shortcode will not work. However, you can add the CSS yourself.
