Exactly what I needed

I was confused why my image/media shortcodes weren’t showing up in Post Grid plugin pages, and this solved it. Looks as if only one of the two shortcodes I have on the page are showing up, but otherwise this was exactly what I needed. Cheers!

Thank you

This plugin simply solves the problem swiftly and cleanly.
Maybe there is a reason for not having it integrated in WordPress, but if there isn’t, then it should be =D .
