Hi, I am looking for a simple way of aligning non post content horizontally across the page. (Picture, Text) I want this simple format repeated many times per page is (picture) (text). I am new to WP and I was hoping that Corona could do that as shown in the Portfolio 1-Column layout however upon using it I found that each entry had to be a separate ‘page’ or ‘post’ when I really just want that presentation format to contain many pictures and descriptions of each picture, with the goal of showing a process, or a series of steps to the viewer. Even more ideally, I would want to display a picture on the left with the built in tabbed-shortcode on the right of each photo.
I came across the simple plugin “Column Shortcodes, v0.4″. It allows you to easily format text horizontally across a page using short-codes, however it does not work from within the Corona theme. It works fine from within twenty-ten. How can I get this plugin to work from within the theme? I did some searching but could not locate any general WP practices that might indicate how this is done for custom themes.
If you have suggestions I could do this outside of a third party plugin I would be interested to hear that as well.
Thanks for your help!March 11, 2013 at 10:45 pm #110590
The theme actually already comes with shortcodes to do that and more. See: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/corona/templates/shortcodes/
When viewing the visual editor there should be a little magic wand icon that when clicked brings up the shortcode menu. Then just select the column shortcode and pick your options.

Thanks for the reply Devin, so I uninstalled that plugin and am trying out the built in short-codes. Once I uninstalled the plugin the column layout began to work, but I cannot get the content slider nor the tabs to work correctly. When viewing this page I have 4 sections of shortcode. First should be setup for 2 tabs, next are 2 content slides, and the third is a one third/two thirds column which is working correctly, lastly I added a toggle which shows up but is not click-able and the content is not able to be displayed. Do you have any thoughts as to why these will not display correctly for me?
