Great plugin, but my theme was affected?
By , for WP 4.1.1

After installing this plugin, some of my theme's CSS classes were somehow changed from 50% width to 100% width, which affects the layout of my website. I've tried deactivating and deleting the plugin, which did nothing to restore those classes. I've checked my styles.css and nothing there is changed. Kind of strange.

I'd love to post this is a ticket on the ThemeHybrid forum, but I don't want to pay to discuss a free plugin which negatively affected my website.

Still worth 5 stars though. It's a great plugin, I just wish I had tested it in a development environment before using on a live server. Lesson learned.

simple, perfect

Just what I needed

This is a perfect plugin that is simple, well documented, and does what it says. It is very easy to implement and use, and I just may have to make this one of my "goes on every site" plugins. Thanks, Justin!

Simple and effective!

A great solution for those without access to the theme sourcecode - easy to use, highly recommended!

Long been looking for a responsive column that it actually does.

Well, you still have to insert the following code to your stylesheet:

@media (max-width: 700px) {
.column { width: 100%!important;}
}

But it works here with me on a Genesis Child Theme.

I hope that this plugin remains uptodate.

Has been working quite amazing with Grid Columns Media Button

Great and useful plug-in highly recommended to anyone in need of grids.

Love the Simplicity and Control
By , for WP 3.8.1

As stated, this plugin does one thing really well. I love how easy this is to use to get the exact formatting I'm looking for. Just great!

If you'd like a shortcode insert button to keep coding super simple, take a look at Grid Columns Media Button

great except columns not aligned in IE8
By , for WP 3.8

I'm pretty sure wp_autop inserts an unneeded paragraph closing tag, that results in invalid html & IE8 display problems. To work around this issue, I created a column container shortcode like this:

function column_container_shortcode($atts, $content) {
        return do_shortcode($content);
    }
add_shortcode('column_container', 'column_container_shortcode')

Then, I enclose the columns inside [column_container][/column_container], which applies the shortcode_unautop filter to the combined columns. I don't have the luxury of ignoring IE8 problems.

Excellent Plugin

Something easy for my client to use.
Thank you.

Useful to know that you would want to make the grid return to 1 column on mobile devices, by using this code:

@media screen and (max-width: 650px) {

.column {
width: 100%!important;

}
}

In your theme style sheet.
