    I’d really like to use columns on a music site of mine. I’ve tinkered about using Dev Tools and I think I know how I’d like it. However, there is a problem.

    The problem is using columns forces the posts to break in half if they don’t perfectly fit, height wise. This means if you’re reading the site, you’d have to keep scrolling up and down – very annoying. That’s also my main general gripe with columns, they force you to scroll.

    That shows you what I mean…

    Is there anyway to do it so it isn’t cutting posts in half like that?


    I think you need to write HTML code also (for one post).


    Can you elaborate please? What do you mean write “HTML code”? Where? What code? The site is already coded in HTML.


    I’m unaware of a way to stop it from doing that without specifying a height, but that won’t work either as you’ll eventually find a piece of writing that won’t fit into that.

    If you don’t want them to break, you’ll have to wrap each article in a div and float them all.
