The QuickColumns stack was primarily built for ThemeFlood theme users, seeking to get multiple columns setup in the horizontal content containers, in themes like Flood, Ocean and Solstice. However it should work equally as well in many other RapidWeaver themes too.

You may also want to try resizing your web browser window, to see how the number of columns and the gaps (spacing) between columns changes on different screen sizes. Normal Stacks border, margin, padding, background, layout and rounded corner settings can be applied to this stack if needed. Additional custom CSS code can be applied using the .quickColumns class selector name, to target the QuickColumns stack.


To use this stack, start by going through the stack settings and adjusting the breakpoints. Breakpoint refers to the size at which particular settings will take effect. So for example, setting a breakpoint of 800px would ensure those particular settings only take effect on screen sizes of 800px or less. It's always best to start with the highest breakpoint and work your way down towards smaller screens. Up to five breakpoints can be set using this stack, although typically you may only need to use two or three (zero-out any you're not using). Column Gap refers to the space between columns under a particular breakpoint. Column Count refers to the number of columns to be displayed under a particular breakpoint. All standard styled text controls are supported, together with basic HTML code.

Browser support

QuickColumns has been tested and confirmed to work in IE10, IE11, Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Opera web browsers. In older web browsers, multiple columns will safely degrade back to single columns. If you search online for 'CSS3 Columns' you can get more information about the official specification and further details relating to browser compatibility.

Theme compatibility

QuickColumns was designed and developed specifically for use in ThemeFlood RapidWeaver themes. It may well work with other themes too, although these won't be officially supported.

Why yet another columns stack?

There are already many column stacks available. However most of these appear to be paid stacks. There did not appear to be any freeware pure HTML / CSS stacks available, like QuickColumns. So although QuickColumns may do the same as other stacks already on the market, the way it works is radically different to others already in existence. Try it, and you might be surprised at how good it is.
