This plugin actually extends default wordpress editor capability, so you will have one extra button on your editor, which you can use to interact with plugin, and not just add your content in multiple columns, you can also edit it, and even see how it will looks like in the editor before you decide to publish your post.
So I hopes that you will find this plugin very useful,
and easy to use.

As any oter WordPress plugin, you can install this one by using the default WordPress installer trought the 'Plugins' menu. Also you can install it manually using your FTP credentials to upload this plugin content to the default WordPress plugins directory.
We recommend you to use the default folder name
'advanced-wp-columns' for this plugin.
After the installation, you can activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress. Once you activate the plugin, using the plugin settings option, you can can set the default values for this plugin, such as default columns number, columns wrapper width, gutter width. Also, if you are developer, and if you want to use this plugin in your theme, you can add additional CSS classes to column wrapper, gutter, or single columns, so you can add your own style o it trough your theme.
After the activation, when you go to your post/page edit page at your admin panel, you will see one new icon at the end of the first row in toolbar on the default WordPress editor which represent this 'Advanced WP Columns' plugin. By clicking at this button you will see "Advanced WP Columns Manager" window. There you can create custom number of columns, without any short codes or similar stuff.
When you click on the "Save" button there, as you can see, even in the editor you have a preview of your columns content.
If you put the caret inside some of that columns, or select some content there, you will notice that icon has been changed, so if you click again on it, 'Advanced WP Columns Manager' window will be opened, but in edit mode (with previously entered content).
So, that's it mates! Have fun using this plugin! :)
