Arranging Salesforce data with View Positions when using Blog Format

created

jsf-search-sf-element-popup-thumb.pngWhen displaying data from your Salesforce account in a Directories page using the Blog Format, you have several options for arranging the data on the List Display which displays the initial results and the Record Display which shows the full detail of a single Salesforce record. These options, or View Positions, are set in the Add Salesforce Element popup when you add or edit Salesforce fields

There are four View Positions available on the List Display and nine positions on the Record Display. The arrangement of these View Positions can be seen by clicking the following example images. Depending on your browser, you may need to click on the image after it opens in the new window to view it at its full size.
