How to Create Columns in WordPress

Columns are vertical divisions or containers within which you can organize and display your web content. By dividing your content into columns, not only can you create a sense of order, balance, and hierarchy but also enhance readability and engagement.

By using columns correctly, you can make your post and page layout attractive. WordPress allows you to create columns in many different ways. This article will show you how to create columns in WordPress in some of those handy ways. Let’s explore!
