CSS Columns


This plugin provides a [columns] shortcode that gives a section of post content multiple columns using css3’s column properties.

The [columns] shortcode requires a closing [/columns] shortcode and accepts the arguments count=”#” to specify the number of columns and gap=”1em” to specify the gap size between columns.

Some examples:

A simple 2 column block of columns.
[columns count=”2″]…[/columns]

A 3 column block of columns with a 2em gap in between columns.
[columns count=”3″ gap=”2em”]…[/columns]
