Creating ‘Datafeedr Ads’ WordPress Plugin Multi Columns Ads Layout through CSS, Here is How?

Few days back I started using ‘Datafeedr Ads’ WordPress Plugin for randomly producing Affiliates Ads layout in my websites’ sidebar

I searched & found that plugin itself doesn’t have inbuilt functionality to layout ads in two columns or three columns

Main Problem: Problem was something like this,

Plugin was lay outing or distributing ads randomly as

Ad 1
Ad 2
Ad 3
Ad 4
Ad 5
Ad 6

But instead expected result was something like, it was distribution of Ads in Two columns like this

Ad 1 | Ad 2
Ad 3 | Ad 4
Ad 5 | Ad 6

i.e. In ‘Z’ English character order.

After contacting Datafeedr Plugin Creator & Author he told me, “You have to use CSS Lay outing for this”.

So After working for few long hours I came up with tis solution: I used ‘CSS Multiple Columns’ Lay outing technique to succesfully use & distribute ads in two columns


<div style="float:left; width:270px; padding-top:0px; padding-right:0px; padding-bottom:0px; padding-left:0px; column-width:auto; -webkit-column-width:auto; -moz-column-width:auto; column-count:2; -webkit-column-count:2; -moz-column-count:2; column-gap:5px; -webkit-column-gap:5px; -moz-column-gap:5px;">
<?php echo dfads( 'groups=51&limit=6&orderby=random' ); ?>

Note: Replace below code with your expected & relevent PHP code generated through your Datafeedr Ads plugin settings page.


<?php echo dfads( 'groups=51&limit=6&orderby=random' ); ?>

And I was more than happy that I solved it,

Thanks & Regards
