Blocks of Text

  • # May 28, 2010 at 6:49 am

    Hi,

    I am wanting to alter my WP site so that a blog post is placed into a square div but if the text exceeds the div I want a new identical div to float to the left of it with the remaining text… so new divs would keep auto generating until the article is done.

    So basically the whole article will be displayed horizontally in divs lined up next to each other.

    Any ideas?

    you mean you want to display your text in columns?

    I’m guessing yes – here are some options:

    and CSS3

    Not too keen on css3 options until its more mainstream. The jquery option looks good… The thing is its dynamic so I can’t just code normal colums. Cheers.

    yea one of the big issues is that columns are just not natively supported yet… :) CSS 3 will sort that out but obviously like you know – it needs to be supported…
