Get Started Right Away!
Lets take a look at the fastest way to create a grid: First you have to decide which source you would like to use for your grid entries. Your grid can consist of WordPress blog posts, custom posts, WooCommerce products or a regular image gallery. You may also fine tune your selection by specifiying categories or tags.

Navigation can easily be added to your grid using our drag & drop system.
In the next step, you can select one of over 25 skins included with the plugin to determine the look of individual grid items. Your finished grid can be added to any area of your wordpress site using a simple shortcode. Yes, it’s that easy!

The Visual Skin Editor
„Essential Grid“ also comes with a full-blown, visual skin editor which allows you create any number of additional skins! You can build skins either from scratch or based upon one of our included skins.
With the skin editor you can style elements in a „what you see is what you get“ environment. It’s even possible to add various animations to any element and take a look at the results right away!
Amongst the more advanced features of „Essential Grid“ is the ability to generate custom metas. A custom meta is essentially another option added to a WordPress post, containing for example, an additional text or image. In that way, you will not be limited to the standard content of a post!
One revolutionary aspect of „Essential Grid“ is a feature we call „Custom Post Based Skin Modifications“. With this neat little trick you can add special rules to change a skin elements style for specific posts only. An example for this would be highlighting a certain post in your grid by giving it a colored border
