This might be a Joomla question rather than a template one, but thought I'd ask here first.

If I have a section with 12 categories. When someone clicks on the section in the menu, I want the 12 categories to be displayed in the main window, 4 columns wide by 3 rows, each in a box with an image and a title.

How would I go about this? Would I choose the section to be a blog layout or a list layout? and then how would I achieve the layout of these 12 categories? Is it something I would code in html and css and add that somehwere?

Thanks for any help,
Ps. I'm pretty good with html and css, but Joomla is new to me.

I have not set up a page exactly like what you're asking but the only two options that I can think of would be the Sections layout and Sections Blog layout when creating a new menu item. This would show your categories but as far as getting them in rows and columns, at least for the sections layout, I think there's no options for that. Sections blog does have options for categories but it shows the articles associated to those categories.
