    I don't understand how to use columns and column rows in this plugin. I've messed around for some time and they basically don't do anything.

    There's no tutorials I can find. I hate to say it but I could have hand-coded everything I wanted to do by now.

    Even go to the Examples in the Shortcode settings under Column Layouts and they are not correct. Pulled the example code right from there and its the same. Something is obviously wrong

    I just deactivated this plugin and it looks like the base Ultimate Shortcodes plug has its own shortcodes for columns and rows that actually work. Why is this add-on plugin needed? What a waste of time!

    Thanks for your feedback. Sorry for wasting your time.

    I think this plugin is useful for people who wants to use the base Ultimate Shortcodes plug and full profit of Twitter's Bootstrap.

    It is important to note you will need a Bootstrap ready theme too. (Bootstrap integrated). Example: http://jbst.eu/

    To use columns and rows:

    [su_row]
    [su_column span="4"]1/3[/su_column]
    [su_column span="4"]1/3[/su_column]
    [su_column span="4"]1/3[/su_column]
    [/su_row]

    Best regards,

    Bass

    Hi Bass, I appreciate anyone who spends time building a plugin, so no offense intended. Just feeling frustrated. I am using a bootstrap ready theme, btw.

    Hi Mike,

    I'm always happy to get feedback, negative or positive. It is not always easy to find out who use your plugins and what they think about it.
    No feedback is no improvement.
    Which theme do you use?

    Personally i think using a different grid method (row) when your site has Bootstrap is some waste of power. Maybe take also a look at http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-bootstrap-shortcodes/ its looks promising.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Bass

    The theme is called "The Bootstrap". I tested Easy Bootstrap Shortcodes as well as one other bootstrap shortcode plugin. Neither seemed as intuitive as Shortcodes Ultimate. I think I am fine just using SU without the bootstrap add-on.

    Are SU shortcodes going to be responsive though? Hadn't thought of that. That would be an advantage of the bootstrap shortcodes then for sure

    In the above example the su_column code are from the Bootstrap plugin. These are responsive for sure. I'm not sure about the default SU codes.

    I have looked up the "The Bootstrap" theme. This theme us Bootstrap's version 2.2. This version is not even the latest stable release of v2 of Bootstrap. The plugin use version 3 of Twitter's Bootstrap.
    Version 2 and version 3 of Twitter's Bootstrap are not backward compatible. See: also: http://bassjobsen.weblogs.fm/its-a-shame-the-newest-version-of-githubs-most-popular-projects-is-not-backward-compatible/ and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17974998/updating-bootstrap-to-version-3-what-do-i-have-to-do/18069643#18069643 to get an impression of the changes.

    If you are starting a new project, i should consider a theme with TB 3.

    Thank you very much for pointing this out. I may consider abandoning this theme then. Tough but better to make that decision now.

    Also, so far I have not had any issue around the SU plugin being responsive except for 1 - the Frame (styled image frame) around images shortcode will prevent any image it is used around from scaling, and keeps it a fixed size.
