Having 4 Columns on Blog Page

    On the blog page I can see that each .post is wrapped in a sixcol div. I was just wondering whether there is a setting in the theme options that would allow me to change this to threecol. (Basically I want 4 posts displayed one after another).

    Or would I have to change this in the code editor? If so which file would I be looking for and would there be an issue setting the fourth div to have the .last assigned to it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Just for anyone’s info, I managed to solve this by changing the following:

    In wp-content > themes > enigmatic > framework > functions > blog-content.php on line 47, find:

    $number_of_columns = 2;

    replace with

    $number_of_columns = 4;

    I presume if the theme was updated then this would be overwritten. Any other input would be brilliant.


    I feel this is would be the easiest solution with just a one word code change. I had implemented this quite sometime back and may be I did not even realise then someone could use this to change the blog layout.

    Yes, it will get overwritten by updates. I tried to avoid this using CSS but results were difficult to achieve due to presence of a extra div .clear element. Cannot use css http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/sel_nth-child.asp to target the 4th child after changing the width of the .sixcol to something like 22%. If you hide the clear element(display:none), then your layout can break if the box sizes are not even. Hope this makes sense.


    Yeah that makes sense. Ill just have to make a note in case I ever update.
