== Description ==

Adds shortcodes to easily create columns in your posts or pages.

Sometimes you just need to divide your page into different columns. With this plugin you just select a column shortcode and it will add the column to the page.

There are 9 different column widths available from which you can make all combinations:

* half (1/2)
* one third (1/3)
* two third (2/3)
* one fourth (1/4)
* three fourth (3/4)
* one fifth (1/5)
* two fifth (2/5)
* three fifth (3/5)
* four fifth (4/5)
* one sixth (1/6)

A preset stylesheet is included, which you can also overwrite to you liking in your theme's stylesheet.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How do I add a column shortcode? =

The easiest way is to use the added icon on the top of your editor ( right next to the media icon ). This will open a popup window from which you can select a column icon by clicking on one of the shortcodes.

You could also type in the shortcode yourself inside the editor. The following shortcodes are available:


**Another option**
Another way to add shortcodes is to switch to HTML-view. On the top of editor you will now see all the shortcodes listed.
By default these buttons are hidden. If you'd like to use them you can add this to your theme's functions.php:

add_filter('add_shortcode_html_buttons', '__return_true' );

= Where do I add my content? =

When you have selected a shorcode it will be placed in you editor. You will see something like this:


Make sure to place your content (text/images etc. ) between the two shortcodes, like so:

[one_half]My content goes here...[/one_half]

= How can I replace the default Shortcode CSS stylesheet? =

You can easily overwrite the existing stylesheet. For example you would like to add a margin between your columns, you just place the following in your theme's style.css:

.one_half  {
	width: 48%;
	margin-right: 2%;
.one_third  {
	width: 32%;
	margin-right: 1.3%;
.two_third  {
	width: 64%;
	margin-right: 2.6%;
.one_fourth  {
	width: 24%;
	margin-right: 1%;
.three_fourth  {
	width: 72%;
	margin-right: 3%;
.one_fifth  {
	width: 19%;
	margin-right: 1%;
.two_fifth  {
	width: 38%;
	margin-right: 2%;
.three_fifth  {
	width: 57%;
	margin-right: 3%;
.four_fifth  {
	width: 76%;
	margin-right: 3%;
.one_sixth  {
	width: 16%;
	margin-right: 0.6%;
