[QUESTION] How to make a list like directory

Hello,
I have just started using this theme and, to be honest, it is awesome! It is very flexible and has so many options that it is sometimes hard to use.

Today I have been trying to figure out how to make a list like directory as a post (see attachment).

I want to make it so every time I click on a letter it navigates right to list that starts with the same letter.

Not only do I want to make it do that, I also want to know how to create such a list in 2 columns.

I find it hard to describe, so I have made a picture that I have added as an attachment.

Thanks in advance!
I really hope it is possible to create something like this.

That's not really a theme issue. It's more a matter of using the proper html and/or plugin(s) to accomplish what you want. It will probably mean you will have to spend a bit of time "fiddling" with various ideas.

Thank you for the answer!
Yes, I have been building my site for the last few hours and so far I have managed to do all but the automatic linking part. If you know any tutorials how to do this, please let me know.

Because what you want to do is unique finding a tutorial to do what you want will be unlikely. There are plugins for creating columns or you could perhaps use a table. The to get to the proper "list" you will probably want to use anchors. So if you do a search on wordpress.org for columns you will probably find some plugins for that. My favorite is Shortcodes Ultimate which has a column function. As for anchors check out w3schools.com.

I can't believe I was not aware of such a plugin before, thank you very much!

Sadly enough, a new problem has arisen.
I want to make my whole post show in the center of the page but the unordered list's icons do not go along with the text (see picture).
