    Hi Support,

    I've searched the forum and done a lot of 'trial and error', and I know there is a quick solution. We have several contact pages where we show our employees with a picture and some text (name and title) and they are shown on the page four on each row/horisontally, i.e. four pictures on the first row and so on. I've tried to make some list items and insert the Lists Control as a 'simple list' - but it shows the list items with only one at each line. How do I manage my contact page?

    Hello Danni Veng,

    The list items are displayed using an ASP.NET Repeater control. So what you can do in the case would be to download the External Templates for your version of Sitefinity and modify the control templates for the public views of the List control. In the case you can take the simple list template - ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Lists/SimpleListView.ascx and provide your own styles of the control. You just have to make the CSS file link to point to your custom styles for the repeater.
    <telerik:CssFileLink ID="CssFileLink1" FileName="~/pathtoyourcustomcss" Media="screen" runat="server" />

    Then you can just map the template for the Simple List View with the following view settings in your controls config file:
    <viewSettings hostType="Telerik.Lists.WebControls.ListDisplay">
            <!--Simple list-->
            <add key="SimpleListTemplatePath" layoutTemplatePath="~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Lists/SimpleListView.ascx" />

    Sincerely yours,
