Good for me !
By , for WP 4.3.1

At this point.. I'm giving 5 Stars.
I used it to transform a number of my pages that were using tables that were not responsive... and these tables had tons of information, and incorporated a number of plugins with inside each "column."

This plugin allowed my tables to now be in DIV columns that were responsive and improved my Google User Score.

I have been experimenting with it... and have not found any conflicts.

One mention in another review mentions they could not resize images.
To understand this plugin, you must not think it is the end all to your Visual Editor.
When you first use the plugin, you create your columns. There is a very "simplistic" editor view at this step. I would suggest you place some text in each of your columns.. just as a placeholder.
Click ADD Columns.... then switch back over to the Visual Editor as you would normally proceed. Where you can adjust and add more text and images at this point. Resizing etc..

If you want to get even fancier.. you can switch over to the Text Editor.. add borders, adjust padding etc..
Using another plugin, that creates Templates... you could save your styling into a template.. and easily drop in your favorite Columns design.

Yes.. there is some tweaking to be done by the user to get what you want to appear correctly.. but on the whole a very handy and useful plugin.

Thanks for your work and have a great day !

It helped me layout my pages in exactly the way I wanted, it's simple to use as well, great for a beginner like myself, no more needs to be said

Wow! Responsive columns FINALLY made easy!

Thank you thank you thank you for creating this plugin! I have wanted a super-easy shortcode to make responsive plugins and your plugin takes the cake! How nice to allow simple semantics: column-groups! and make the computer do the math.

SO grateful - thank you.

Wonderful !

Little tricky, but working well

I couldn't modify code (tried. add link to the images in the columns) but at last I achived with WP tools.

Far Superior To Other, More Popular Column Plugins
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's a quandary this one. As someone who only uses responsive layouts I found the popular column plugins rather frustrating. They work well with simple shortcode, and from that point of view they're great. No messy code in your post to deal with, just easy shortcodes.

However, when you reload the page under a different screen size/resolution, those simple column plugins look awful. They don't float like they should do (and I mean float as in the html term for floating divs) or stack when the page is reduced in width.

Advanced WP Columns, on the other hand, handles responsive design well. I've done a quick test and compared this plugin with the other, simpler plugins, and for me this wins hands down.

And to the reviewer who gave this plugin one out of five stars because it doesn't use percentage width, it does. I can only assume this plugin was updated to accommodate this feature after you wrote your review. I thought it was an unnecessarily harsh review for a great plugin that's clearly had a lot of work put into it. Fortunately that was for an earlier version of WP, and I've tested this on 3.9.1 and it works well.

Definitely recommend.

works perfectly in the woocommerce (v2.1.5) product description :) No hassle to install, setup and get working.
