Hi Experts,

I have hundreds of content query web parts that have been migrated from 2007 to 2013.  In 2007, they display content in 3 columns; in 2013, only one column, no matter how many I tell it to display.

HOW do I force it to display in 3 columns?

Thanks in advance,
nsy

As far as I am aware - webparts in 2013 no longer use tables for layout so you are going to lose your custom layouts. The ugly truth is that you may have to start from scratch....
Or you may want to take the opprtunity to look at consent search web parts

That's exactly where I was going when I asked the question.  Part 2 is here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_28154555.html.

I just don't know what to have in place to be able to use that technet resource.  I went through it, but there seem to be some fundamental pieces missing.
