“Page Columnist” - Posts and Pages at Column Layoutcodestyling | 13. June 2009 | 18:34
Some time ago i was asked by a friend of mine if there is no easy solution to get pages edited at column layout without a knownledge about HTML and CSS simply at the editors. It should be a little bit flexible und easy to use. The upcomming solution was the plugin “Page Columnist”.
Unfortunately the plugin did only support static pages of WordPress. Furthermore i was astonished during release of WordPress 2.8 that the plugin didn’t produce any longer columns but nevertheless did some it’s normal work as internally designed for.
After some incomming urgent user requests about that erroneous behavoir i did analyze the code to find out, what is different in comparison to previous version. I did catch the reason at the WordPress core files again. The core team did change again the calling sequence (order) of processing WordPress Hooks. Doing so the work of my plugin has been started in front of the ordinary WordPress content handling. That’s why the plugin did already it’s work as intended but senceless because WordPress reverts it afterwards.
