I like the idea, but it simply doesn't work well
By , for WP 4.4.1

Tried this using a simple 3-column layout with an image in the first column.

Problem #1: You need to know the actual URL of the image on the site, (you can't browse for it), and you can't upload a new image.

Problem #2: The image doesn't scale, despite the options to select the desired size on the image input box. Result: messed up layout.

Problem #3: Using an image specifically sized to fit the width of the column, (in this case 120px), did seem to work. It looked fine in page editing mode, but page preview showed text overwriting the image.

Conclusion: needs work, an a LOT more testing.

A totally waste of time!

At first you will think you've found what you need it. The base idea was good, but after using it for few hour you will realize that sometimes people just simply should stay AWAY from making plugins! It's full of bugs and you have to have literally a 'battle' with columns and text. Instead of help, it will messing up your website even worse than when you don't even use it. Support not useful at all. They will tell you that it's your own theme what mess up this 'plugin' but in the truth, it's just a prestest to not admit that this plugin is full of bugs.
I suggest simply to delete this plugin from WordPress. It doesn't even deserve to be called 'Plugin'. Good idea but bad realization. I suggest to correct the bugs or remove it.

Terrible plug in. Use it just because it seems to be the only one, but very hard to use: width must be adjusted manually and there is noway to modify columns after you have added them to the post. Inexistent customer support.

not installed?

Percentages not allowed.
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have reviewed this plugin and it does not allow for percentage width columns. Any responsive theme will have issues with this. It also uses a 1px spacer png image for the gutter. For this, I an giving it 1 star.
