WP Easy Columns Plugin (3 posts)

    I am trying several different plugins that will allow me to make columns on a page. This one seems fairy easy to use. . but I can't get it to work. It says just click on the Easy Columns icon when in visual mode. The following code is entered:

    [wpcol_1third id="" class="" style=""]Third Column[/wpcol_1third] [wpcol_1third id="" class="" style=""]Third Column[/wpcol_1third] [wpcol_1third_end id="" class="" style=""]Third Column[/wpcol_1third_end]

    I apparently have to have names for each of the "" - but I'm not sure where to do that.

    What else am I missing?

    Thanks so much.

    Did you ever get an answer on this? I'm having issues as well.

    No, IDs, classes and styles aren't required to make the columns work. Those attributes are there in case you want more granular control over the columns you create.

    Entering a unique ID would allow you to add additional style based on the ID of the column or control it with jQuery.

    Entering a class also lets you manage the styling through CSS instead of entering inline style.

    Last but not least, you can enter inline style if you absolutely, positively must use inline CSS.

    Clicking the number of columns you want in the visual editor will basically insert the shortcodes for you. Once that's done, you can enter your content where it says "Third Column" (or half column, quarter column, etc).

    As a test, insert 3 columns and update your page, then preview it - you should see three sections of text, equally spaced on your page that say "Third Column".
