If you are fairly new at building WordPress sites and even more so at using HTML code, laying out a new post or page can be a daunting task. The WordPress Column Shortcodes plugin can ease your fear and make it very easy for WordPress newbies to add columns to your page or post.
From your WordPress Dashboard select “Plugins” / “Add New”
In the search box type “Column Shortcodes” and click “Search Plugins”
Locate the “Column Shortcodes” plugin on the list and click “Install Now”
Select “Activate Plugin”
Select “Pages” or “Posts” & click on “Edit” for the page or post you want to modify.
Click on the spot in your page where you want the column to begin. Then select the Shortcode Icon “
Select the padding you want to have inside the particular column. These values can be altered later to help you align your page content.
Select the width of the first column.
Repeat the process to select the subsequent columns. Be sure your columns in any given row total “1”. For example, “one half” plus “one half last”= “1”. Or “one third” plus “two thirds last” = “1”.
Insert your content between the shortcodes per this example INSERT CONTENT HERE
Select “Update” to save your page or post and to view your work.
