Still works

I still use this plugin with success. It just won't get any easier than this.

Really good but you should merge in the Tiny MCE button plugin

This plugin is how things should be done, a great lightweight way to drop a versatile grid into any theme and to keep it when you change themes.

I wish that the TinyMCE button add-on by a different author was standard in this plugin as I often forget shortcodes over time and need to constantly look things up even though [column] is fairly memorable, the grid and span elements are not so.

Not completely Responsive.

It will give you columns but unfortunately and contrary to what the author says, the columns are NOT responsive and will only shrink, they will not stack for mobile devices.

You can look at the CSS file and see there are no media queries, conformation of not being Responsive.

You have to add something like this to your theme's CSS file to get this to work for smaller devices:

@media (max-width: 800px) {
.column { width: 100%!important;}

Just don't use more than 4 columns.

Works best to install this companion plugin.

This is just perfect. I can't really elaborate on it - just simple and effective. Love it.

no drama

All good, simple and efficient. Easy to use to make things look great.

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

simple, great. does all it should, intelligent.

Just what I needed
By ,

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
