A [column] shortcode for creating columnized content.
Many theme developers add several column shortcodes to their themes (note: this isn't allowed on WordPress.org). Essentially, the theme developers are doing a few things wrong:
This plugin allows you to switch between any theme (no lock-in to your current theme). It was also developed with WordPress standards and usability in mind.

Everything is based on a grid. By default, this grid is "4". So, you can set up four columns like so:
[column grid="4" span="1"]Some content[/column] [column grid="4" span="1"]Some content[/column] [column grid="4" span="1"]Some content[/column] [column grid="4" span="1"]Some content[/column]
You'll notice that each "span" is equal to the number of columns in the grid. So, if the span is "1", it's equal to one column. If the span is "2", it's equal to two columns. You can only have as many spans/columns as the grid allows. Therefore,
grid="4" means you can only have four columns.
If you need a more detailed guide, see
readme.html, which is included with the plugin. It has a few examples and explains everything.
Most likely, it's because you either have too many spans or not enough spans for your grid. Make sure each
span argument for your
[column] shortcode equals exactly the
If you're absolutely sure you're math is correct, it could be a conflict with your theme. It'd be impossible for me to know without seeing it in use on your site, so you'll either need to ask on my support forums or get your theme developer to help.
Yes. Absolutely. Just make sure each grid has the correct number of columns before starting a new one.
No. This is a limitation of how WordPress handles shortcodes.
Yes, you can. However, keep in mind, that I can't guarantee that your plugin developer knows what he's doing and created his shortcode correctly. But, yes, you can do this with properly-coded shortcodes.
It's possible, but you'll probably break something. I recommend against attempting this.
