    On the index page, I want two columns. I want to make the list of links go from one side and continue to the next column and finish.

    How would I set that up?
    thanks inadvance

    (down,over and then down)

    See the column attributes in the Help page for the WM-Record tag.

    Thanks Richard, but this is what I have:

    &lt;table width="100%" border="0" align="left" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000"&gt;
    &lt;tr bgcolor="#FFFFFF"&gt;
    &lt;td width="400"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;
    &lt;div align="left"&gt;[WM-RECORD]
    [WM-IndexLabel: CATEGORY]&lt;font color="#FF0063"&gt;&deg;&lt;/font&gt;
    &lt;a href="http://www.xxx/yyy/[WM-Field: CATEGORY nolink].html" title="[WM-Field: CATEGORY nolink]"&gt;[WM-Field: CATEGORY]&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br&gt;[/WM-IndexLabel][/WM-Record]&lt;br&gt;
    &lt;/div&gt;
    &lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;td width="400"&gt;
    &lt;div align="left"&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    &lt;/table&gt;

    ....and what happens is they all line up on the left of the page. My div tags for alignment. But I don't understand how to say, put 25 links of categories on that side, then have it go up into the next table and finish the next 25 starting with the next in order. Like a newspaper column would go.
    Hope that made sense, if not let me know and I will try to explain it more.
    thanks in advance

    Check out this reply I made in another post down the line here.

    It's not exactly what your looking for to make 2 tables, but if you make one bigger table with 2 columns, this trick works great.

    I use this myself for several merchants so I have something to feature on my index pages

    Thanks Nature Boy, but it is not what I am looking for.
    I have a table 100%.
    I want the 50 records on the index page to go like this:

    this this
    that that
    this this
    that that
    then they will continue to the next column over
    in alpha order. (These are links from the index page).

    Unfortunately that's not how HTML works. The native order of cells in HTML is left to right, top to bottom.

    We might be able to work out a scheme for doing things as you suggest, but with the other requests it's not likely I can add it to the very next version.

    Would it be possible in the meantime to change your cell order? I wish I had a simpler answer, but building tables is not a trivial task and the left-right,top-to-bottom method we use now follows the natural order of HTML and thus avoids a great deal of complexity in try other orders.
