So I was looking for a simple lightweight grid/column plugin (not much out there) to quickly use grid layouts on pages (without having to use a bloated full-on page builder) and discovered Tom’s Lightweight Grid Columns. I know I can just use GP’s existing column structure by going manual html but sometimes it is just so convenient going the short-code route. Lightweight Grid Columns
So my point is, to anyone interested in structuring pages with a page builder but not keen on having a full on page builder plugin: Using the GP pro sections add-on, and then using Lightweight Grid Column shortcodes in those section makes for a very nice page builder type scenario.
Tom, perhaps a nice feature would be to bring Lightweight Grid Columns into GP pro to create a lightweight page builder type function when used in conjunction with the Sections add-on or do a Lightweight Grid Columns Pro with some added features. All it really lacks is background colour and padding controls.
