Support » Plugin: Multi-column Tag Map » No More Than 3 Columns

  • Hi There-

    No matter what I select for the columns option, the most it will give me is 3. Any ideas?

    And also, would it be possible to provide the shortcode/options the examples on the screenshots page are using just for comparison purposes to ensure mine ends up looking like theirs and is working properly when the same options are used?

    Thanks for a great plugin!

    Sounds like the default width of the columns might be too wide for your layout. You can change this by setting the “width: option in the shortcode:

    Can you post a link to a page you are having issues with?



    I am also having this problem, except it won’t allow me to have more than 2 columns. I am working off a local site, so I’m unable to post the link. I’m testing it on the Twenty Thirteen theme.

    @zwrodgers, first thanks for searching and not opening up another post. Your issue, as well as the issue with the 2013 theme, is this:

    .entry-header, .entry-content, .entry-summary, .entry-meta {
        margin: 0 auto;
        max-width: 604px;
        width: 100%;

    In the installation instructions:

    The default width is 190px. You are free to modify that and can in the shortcode. In the mctagmap.css:

    #mcTagMap .holdleft, #sc_mcTagMap .holdleft {
    	width: 190px;
    	display: inline;
    	margin: 0 20px 0 0;
    	float: left;
    	text-align: left;

    Notice the 20px right margin (190 + 20 = 210) so the theme’s content is 604px and the default with of a column with margin is 210px. The script does not add the margin to the last column so if in your shortcode you have [columns=3] (190 + 20 + 190 + 20 + 190 = 610) you can’t put 610px of stuff in a 604px wide box.

    So in short, your issue is exactly the same issue selym had above.
