GM Adaptive CSS Grid Columns


Who can benefit from the plugin GM Adaptive CSS Grid Columns? (Short: GM Grid)
The plugin is made to help everyone who wants to have an easy, lightweight and worry-free solution to set up a maximum grid count on their website.
Of course, you can have fewer columns as those you have defined. They will automatically take the right percentage like 33.3%, 50% or even 100% of the available width.

Do I have to know CSS?

Absolutely not! Especially beginners and non-coders will start to love this plugin soon.

Hold on, not another plugin, what happens to my page speed?

Don’t panic, we took care of this by keeping this plugin lightweight and the CSS is minified by default.

Important Notice:

The plugin only works if you correctly identify and target the parent, and it’s direct child elements. Otherwise, the plugin can’t work.
Recommended page builder are Bricks, Oxygen and Breakdance.

How to use:

The setup is quite simple. Basically, you just add two CSS classes to your elements and the plugin does the magic for you.
Make sure to add the following classes to the container and direct child elements. Use a DIV instead of a section, container, or block
to avoid conflicting predefined styles.

Parent/Container Element class: grid-container
Child Element class: grid-item

Additionally, there is one more CSS class available. By using grid-center on your parent (container) element, you achieve three things.
1. The container will be centred on the page
2. Add your desired width (in rem)
3. Add horizontal spacing across all break points

Minimum Setup:

  1. Define the maximum column count for your medium and large screen size.
  2. Add the desired gap size (in rem)
  3. Define the medium and large breakpoint (in em).

Why is this plugin not working for me?

The plugin only works if you correctly identify and target the parent and it’s direct child elements.
Recommended page builder are Bricks, Oxygen and Breakdance.

Why is the small break point missing?

This plugin works based on the “Mobile First” principle, which means everything below the medium break point is for small devices. This way, you can define when the medium and large break point should be applied.

What makes Adaptive CSS Grid stand out is its intuitive user interface and the ease of use. Even if you don’t have any prior experience with CSS grids, you can quickly get started with the plugin and create beautiful, responsive designs without any hassle. One of the best features of Adaptive CSS Grid is its flexibility with adjusting the columns required. I love how it just works seamlessly with Bricks Builder, and some others. My tip is to use Divs for the Parent and Child containers 🙂

This is an awesome plugin especially with a page builder like bricks / breakdance, etc. to easily and quickly bring in the use of CSS grid. This is how it should be implemented and find using GM grid a real time saver. 😎
