Genesis Widget Column Classes

Description

As easy as it gets. Add column classes to widgets with a select box, check whether the widget is the first, and save!

I’ve built this plugin for the Genesis Framework, though it will work with any theme that uses the (old) Bootstrap column classes.

Filter: `genesis_widget_column_classes`

Allows you to change the available column classes

Parameters: array Default column classes.
Return: array Array of column classes.

Filter: `genesis_widget_column_classes_capability`

Change the capability required to modify column classes.
Since 1.2.2

Default: edit_theme_options
Parameters: string The default capability.
Return: string The new capability.

You can use these filters inside your theme functions.php file or in a plugin.

Reviews

Easy to use & works perfectly

An extra option appears at the top of your existing widgets to set the width of that widget. No lengthy shortcodes to figure out, no separate settings page, no php or function files. Exactly what I was looking for!
