Categories/Page Links spread out over multiple columns (3 posts)

    Hi

    I am having tremendous fun converting wordpress into a customised CMS, but now I'm down to my final challenge.

    I don't want my Categories links in the sidebar, but
    rather have them at the bottom of my page in 3 columns.

    e.g. NOT

    ----------
    ----------
    ----------
    ----------
    ----------
    ----------
    ----------
    ----------

    (e.g. as per usual in the sidebar)

    BUT rather:

    ------------- ------------- -------------
    ------------- ------------- -------------
    ------------- ------------- -------------
    ------------- ------------- -------------
    ------------- ------------- -------------

    (i.e. in the footer of a page rather than in the sidebar)

    The reason why is because I plan to have a LONG list of categories, and I don't want the page to go on forever as a result of being confined to 1 column in the sidebar.

    At the moment, I cannot work out how to do it.

    I know there was talk of CSS3 coming out with a multi-column feature, but my site needs to be compatible across browsers.

    Is there any way of doing this with PHP? The problem is coding it in such a way that the links list starts a new column once a third of the links have been called.

    I'm sure I am missing an obvious and simple solution. Can anybody help me find it??

    I'm sure many other WordPress users would find this feature useful too - especially for those looking to WordPress as a fat-free CMS.

    Regards
    Max

    But that's only for your blog roll isn't it?
