Neither of us really has any control over where the page breaks. It would be cool if we had a button that would do this [col=12][/col]

And we could change the text as so ...

[col=6][/col][col=6][/col]
[col=4][/col][col=4][/col][col=4][/col]
[col=3][/col][col=3][/col][col=3][/col][col=3][/col]

And we could just change the numbers as we like so I could do something like

[col=9]*Insert a nice image[/col][col=3]*Stick some relevant text next to it.[/col]

It would also be very nice for making OPs and we'd be more or less free of the table monstrosity that is
Code: [Select]
[table]
[tr]
[td][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]


Now I don't think this is as hard as it first seems. It is mostly an exercise in creating a few classes and adding in the css

Code: [Select]
@media (min-width: 768px) {
    .col-6 {
        width: 100%;
        float: left;
    }
}

@media (min-width: 992px) {
    .col-6 {
        width: 50%;
        float: left;
    }
}

@media (min-width: 1200px) {
    .col-6 {
        width: 50%;
        float: left;
    }
}

That kind of thing. Maybe row is important. [row][col=6][/col][col=6][/col][/row] something like that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Aside from the fact that implementing this in a way that would actually work would be quite hard, I don't think we really want to encourage more rabinoz-style posts. Forum posts are supposed to be read from the top to bottom, and adding more complexity would just be asking for trouble.

What if we could just have containers and define width by percentage?

[cont width=50%]*Interesting picture[/cont][cont width=50%]*Amazing Thorky anedote[/cont]
It says cont ... cont!

That's the same suggestion, just phrased differently.

It seems I'm going to have to try harder if I want to outwit you. 😠

Agree with Pete that this isn't a necessity.

Also RIP Rabinoz.
