Hi, I am using Atahualpa 3.5.1, WordPress 3.0.

The Author of the Query Posts Plugin gave me some CSS code to try to get the posts in a particular Query Posts widget to appear in two columns. But it didn't work. He suggested that if it did not work, I ask the author of Atahualpa.

Here is the CSS code he suggested that did not work:

/* Font. */
#query-posts-4 {
font-size: 14px;
}

/* Layout. */
#query-posts-4 {
overflow: hidden;
}

#query-posts-4 .widget {
clear: none;
float: left;
width: 100px; /* Adjust to your needs. */
margin: 0 10px 0 0; /* Adjust to your needs. */
}

Here are the CSS rules that he said the Atahualpa author could work with:

#query-posts-4 { }

.posts { }

.hentry { }

.entry-title { }

.byline { }

.entry-content { }

.entry-summary { }

.entry-meta { }

With the above, can anyone tell me how to get the posts in a particular Query Posts widget to appear in two columns? (My site under construction is at: www.HelpingYouCare.com/blog

Many thanks!

There is an easier way to have a two column post. In the Gold Forums Tutorials, you will find a template for creating two columns - no plugin needed. You can even pick how many single posts to show before slitting the posts into two columns.

The gold forums are available to anyone who has donates at least $20

Thank you, Juggledad! I donated the $20, and found your template. Will try this -- and donate more to you if it works!

Will your page template place all posts associated to a page (whether via Post-Page Associator, List Category Posts, or Query Posts Plugins) in two columns within the center column?

Many thanks!

I haven't tried it with any of the plugins you mentioned - give it a try and let everyone know the results

Your Template works well to make a new post or category-like page containing only posts in two columns, and the designated number of posts before the columns.

However, unfortunately, it did not work with the Plugins I am using. My aim was to keep the "page page" that I am using for the front page, with all the text I have on it, and just to make the posts associated to that page via Post-Page Associator and List Category Posts Plugins appear in two columns.

I have since accomplished this by using another Plugin -- Columnize.

Many thanks!
