If you look to the bottom of the page you will see text listings in 3 columns, this is a joomla site which I am redoing in wordpress, what I am trying to find out how can I do this in wordpress using 3 columns and placing the names in alphabetical order so when new sponsors sign up all I have to do is add the name to the proper type of sponsor they are an it will flow as needed.

I am pretty new at wordpress so please try to explain so someone like me could understand. maybe you know of a plugin that can do this.

Thanks for your time and help

    It's all backend.  The sponsors go into a db table, and the ordering is done in the query.  The page is being generated from script, so the whole thing should not require anything more than just adding them to the database.  That of course assumes that you have the appropriate script for the 3- column layout.

    Thanks for the post this is good for the logos. But what I am trying to do is find something for the text sponsors. Something where I can add names to as they sign up and it will place them across 3 columns in alphabetical order and add hyperlink to their site. I just am not sure if there is any plugin for this, maybe an indexing script. I am not sure, I just know I need to find some way to achieve this task.
    Thanks for the link I will try that one for the logo sponsors
