Grid-A-Licious Back in mid 2008, I created a jQuery plugin. I named it Grid-A-Licious and described it as, "Divs are placed in chronological order with a special grid" because I had no clue how to explain it better. I used this script a lot and designed many sites with it during 2008. At first, people were very skeptic and confused on how to read the grid, and thought this kind of layout belonged in real papers. This reaction slowly faded away once the layout became more and more popular when different developers and designers started to create their own script's interpretation of the floating grid layout effect. In Dec 2008, I decided to wrap the script into a Wordpress theme and release it as a christmas gift to the world. Today this floating grid layout effect is heavily used around the net and there are tons of different variations of the script to download and use. So, why am I continuing developing this? If this is something you’ve been looking for, go ahead and download the plugin and use it.
