Code 96 WordPress Design has released our newest plugin, Genesis Easy Columns. The plugin is available for download from within the WordPress.org plugin repository. This plugin provides added functionality for WordPress users, and takes advantage of the Genesis Framework column classes.
Columns are often necessary to control content in your WordPress design, and many people are frustrated trying to develop the necessary CSS to produce effective columns. The Genesis Easy Columns plugin makes this as easy as clicking a button. Our plugin adds several column buttons to the WordPress editor, which can be accessed when creating or updating a page or post.
The buttons insert the necessary shortcodes directly into your editor, and you no longer need to remember any HTML, CSS or shortcodes to add columns to your page or post. The Genesis Easy Column plugin takes care of the work, and gives you an intuitive interface to add columns to your WordPress design. The easy add buttons can be viewed below, and are available for 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6-column functionality. If you hover over the easy insert buttons, the functionality will be visible to the user.
After a user clicks the Genesis Easy Columns buttons, the shortcode will automatically be inserted into your page and post. The shortcode for a two-column layout is as follows:
You will simply insert your column content as follows:
[one-half-first]First column content goes here.[/one-half-first][one-half]Second column content goes here.[/one-half]
Next, simply publish your page or post and the comments will be formatted for Genesis users that already have the column classes within their themes CSS.
** If you are not a Genesis Framework User, we have included the necessary CSS within the plugin file- simply copy the included CSS code into your themes CSS.
