Would it be wiser to promote creation of columns by floats instead of the columns widget?
I am not completely convinced in this, but I have a number of points to support it:
- the columns widget does not support all possible numbers of columns;
- as a consequence of the above novices would need to realize that they could achieve the same by floats, which is a waste of time - if one knew that columns were possible with floats, from the very beginning, s/he wouldn't have wasted time learning how to use the columns widget;
- responsive layouts need to be adjusted via Settings, that is, they are not automatically rendered to all instances of the css class;
- the widget comes with some pre-defined margins and paddings which is annoying, as you'd need to change them every time to fit your own design (but then, this is not a project with the widget itself, but with the policy of pre-defined margins and paddings).
What do you think?
