  • A messy plugin. I don’t like that I have to insert the text and images between the html visual code. It’s too messy.
    Waste of time.

    Hi soul33,

    Thank you for your review. I always welcome constructive feedback. I agree that sometimes shortcodes are not always that easy to use, especially when using images. But I do feel that I am pretty clear that this plugin uses them to display the columns. The screenshots provided also show this. I think it is unfair to call a plugin messy that simply uses a very common WordPress feature, i.e. shortcodes, but I value your opinion.

    All the best,
    Nick

    Thanks, ok its not messy for who maybe know html but I wrote what I experienced. I searched for all the day, and I had to install and remove a lots of plugins… at a certain point one loose patience… not all people want to use html codes, expecially when we use wordpress for the visual side of it …
    all I wish was to add 2 columns and 2 photos in each columns. And not use html codes because make much more confusion .
    I hope one day a version more visual to simply add 2 or 3 columns…
    Thanks for the reply

    Hi soul33,

    Unfortunately you will run into HTML very often when using WordPress, and as I can see you discovered, many plugins make use of shortcodes. If this is something that you want to avoid, I suggest you purchase a premium theme with a more advanced visual editor or use something like Visual Composer. If you really do not want to mess with HTML, Visual Composer might be the way to go. But it is obviously not free.

    Making plugins takes time and effort, and all of the ones on WordPress.org are provided for free. You will not always find the polish of a premium plugin here.

    Best of luck,
    Nick
