SCRAP TABLES - USE THIS!
By , for WP 4.6

This plugin has saved me hours and hours of work messing with stupid unresponsive and downright ERRATIC table behaviour in WordPress!!!

THANK YOU to whoever made this plugin, it works perfectly!!

Good review and a suggestion
By , for WP 4.5.3

I gave you a 5 start rating, awesome plugin. However, I would recommend changing your CSS to use display: inline-block. It is more suited for responsive design as it will maintain layout even if the elements are not the same height. With floats, you can get odd behavior like wrapping under the next one and also the container it is in can appear to be not long enough if it does not have the width: auto; overflow: hidden;

/* =General CSS
-------------------------------------------------------------- */
.full_width,
.one_half,
.one_third,
.two_third,
.one_fourth,
.three_fourth,
.one_fifth,
.two_fifth,
.three_fifth,
.four_fifth,
.one_sixth,
.five_sixth {
display: inline-block;
zoom: 1;
*display: inline;
margin-left: -5px;
padding: 0 2%;
}
.clear_column {
clear:both;
display:block;
font-size:0; height:0;
line-height:0; width:100%;
overflow: hidden;
}

.full_width {

.one_half {

Great solution for simple content management

Keeping things simple usually works well - same here!

Fantastic tool
By ,

I've used this on two sites, getting ready to use it on a third. It's a simple, elegant tool for creating columns. A must have if you need to create columns on your WordPress site.

Doesn't seem to work at all now
By , for WP 4.5.2

First time I tried, it seemed to work. I then tried adding a photo to the column, upon which it just dumped the column and photo back to the left side.

Removing the photo makes no difference, the plugin now simply doesn't work, at all.

Really good job
By , for WP 4.5

Easy to use and really effective.
No problem with any other plugin.
good job :)

I use it on all of my websites that i design
By , for WP 4.4.2

This is a great plug-in that makes columns possible to confused clients.

I personally edit the CSS a bit to make it responsive with some important tags, but i am happy the have such a simple interface for my clients.

Nice. Nice. Nice.

As simple as I need it. And very nice and clean interface :)))

Great!

Works even better with an expanded style sheet
By , for WP 4.4

I love the simplicity of this plugpin. It works as advertised. Adding additonal break points to the style sheet makes it even more responsive to my needs. Thanks.
