Displaying results in a table

Dear Jason,

Okay, it sounds as if presenting the results in a table of rows is not a good ides.

I would then prefer to display the result of the members as business cards – like a catalogue – say 3 columns and what every number of rows it takes.

So in the results you have contact details, a photo and a description (currently limited to 500 characters in the database – but I wouldn’t want to see all 500 characters on the results page – maybe the first 100 characters.

So I’d like the width and height of each information to remain the same.

Can DataAssist Pages build a members catalogue similiar to a Product Catalogue? I've kind of improvised - see below.

What I’ve done so far:
I’ve tried to improvise with DataAssist Pages to build a business card results type page for the members, similar to a catalogue page - see attached screenshot. However, the result are too ‘liquid. I need a more rigid look so that all the members information has a consistent look and if the description is too long, it just stops at 100 characters (but not in the middle of a word) - I’ve seen catalogue websites in the past, where the text stopped – but it didn’t seem to stop in the middle of a word and there was an ellipse (...) at the end of the text, followed by a link you clicked on for ‘more’ details.
