Layout can be a tricky thing in WordPress, quite often it’s difficult to get images, text, video, audio etc sitting next to each other in the way you envisioned. One-way around this is to use columns to organise content:
To add two columns of text, enter the text below into your post/page editor:
To add three columns of text, enter the text below into your post/page editor:
To add four columns of text, enter the text below into your post/page editor:
Column Examples Two equal columns featuring text and video
Two unequal columns (using ‘one-third first’ and ‘two-thirds’) featuring text and video
If ever you find unwanted content creeping into your columns, you can use the ‘clear-line’ code after the last column in a row to stop this happening – see example below:
One of the ways you can make content look more interesting is to use ‘Content Boxes’ to make certain areas of your article standout. To do this, you’ll need to copy and paste the code below into the ‘Text Editor’ of your post. To alter the Colour, change the word blue to one of the other options listed below. To add your content, replace the words ‘Enter content box text here.’ with your own text.
*Please Note: The content boxes below are in columns, if you don’t put them in columns the will show the full-width of the page
If you want to make links stand out more, adding buttons can be one way of ensuring this happens. Buttons shouldn’t be used in standard news stories, but if the case ever arises that you need them, here’s the code.
Copy and paste the above code into the ‘Text Editor’ of your post. Replace the # with the URL you want to link to and change the ‘Blue Button Link’ text to whatever you want to display in your button. To change the colour of your button, alter the class=”button-blue” to one of the options below e.g. class=”button-yellow”
