How do I create multiple text columns in WordPress?

  • # August 11, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    Hi all,

    I’m converting this CSS/HTML site to WordPress. I have things started here:

    My client would like 2 columns of text. However, since IE doesn’t support 2 columns of text I manually created the two columns. Also, on the page shown above, I have an intro heading and paragraph that spans the entire width.

    I’m struggling to figure out how to code this in WordPress. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I found the answer to my question. There is a plug-in for creating multiple columns of text. You can find it here:

    1. Download the plug-in via the link provided in my earlier post
    2. Login as the WordPress admin for your website
    3. Navigation to Plug-ins
    4. Choose "Add New"
    5. Then choose "Upload"
    6. You will then see the instuctions "Install a plugin in .zip format". Browse your hard drive to find the .zip file you downloaded. Select that file for upload and choose "Install Now".
    7. Once installed, seletive "Activate Plug-in".
    8. The code you enter into your page should now work.
