It turns out this Plugin does work quite well. Here is an example. http://www.docrodman.com
Instructions as I see it to make two columns:
Insert Short Code [twocol_one] before the start of the content for the first column. Then at the end of the content for the first column, insert this short code [/twocol_one]
To start the second column insert this short code: [twocol_one_last] At the end of the second column insert these short codes to end the second column and make any additional content in single column format. [/twocol_one_last] [end_columns][/end_columns]
Really works well. Also, if you have the Ultimate TinyMCE plugin installed there is a button that gives people a super easy way to insert these short codes!
Thanks Brandon for a really nice tool to create content columns! The reason this is especially important right now is that many website visitors are using smart phones to visit websites and breaking content up into columns makes the content look great on a phone!
