    GP is almost exactly what I have been looking for, simple, clean and affordable. However I really do need to be able to subdivide sections so as to have images with text side by side. Searching around I have seen the Lightweight G C thingy and have looked at using Siteorigin builder with GP but it’s all a bit clunky to be pleasing to use. Has anyone found an elegant solution to the columns question……..alternatively if I have to go with Lightweight G C is there a helpful video or guide to using it that anyone knows of?

    Hi Richard, the cleanest option of all options is to do it by “hand”.

    As you might know, Generatepress uses the Unsemantic.css framework so you can create your columns using that in the text-editor:

    Example of a layout with three columns:

    
    <div class="grid-container">
    
    	<div class="grid-33">
    		<h3>I'm column 1</h3>
    		<p>A dapibus scelerisque mus parturient facilisi sociis sodales porta blandit lobortis enim class integer in malesuada lectus eleifend. A nec odio scelerisque inceptos.</p>
    	</div>
    
    	<div class="grid-33">
    		<h3>I'm column 2</h3>
    		<p>A dapibus scelerisque mus parturient facilisi sociis sodales porta blandit lobortis enim class integer in malesuada lectus eleifend. A nec odio scelerisque inceptos.</p>
    	</div>
    
    	<div class="grid-33">
    		<h3>I'm column 3</h3>
    		<p>A dapibus scelerisque mus parturient facilisi sociis sodales porta blandit lobortis enim class integer in malesuada lectus eleifend. A nec odio scelerisque inceptos.</p>
    	</div>
    
    </div>
    

    That’s basically what Lightweight Grid Columns does using shortcodes, so the next thing in the cleanliness scale could be using the plugin/shortcode combo instead.

    Regarding page builders, well, I’m not a big fan but I have to admit that sometimes they really help to build page layouts faster at the price of a little clunkyness. I think that the SiteOrigin plugin is fairly nice and works perfectly with GP so if you don’t need super fancy stuff you can use that too.
