record thumbnails portal list view

I was using a layout to display 50 records at a time as thumbnails. It was set up using a self-join relationship between a unique "Picture ID" field and a Calculation field with 50 repetitions, shown below:


GetNthRecord( Extend(Picture ID) ; Get(RecordNumber) + Get(CalculationRepetitionNumber) - 1)


I am a little confused at how this was originally even set up, but am looking to revamp this into a more seamless layout.

Instead of going page to page, viewing 50 records, then another 50... I want to set it up in a list view where there are 10 records per row, where you can just scroll down until there are no more records.


Right now I have the single row set up with 10 portals all one row in height, showing record 1, then record 2, then record 3, etc...


my problem comes in when i hit the second row, it's currently showing the records as something like this:


list row 1 : [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

list row 2 : [2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

list row 3 : [3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

list row 4 : [4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]


should be something like this:


list row 1 : [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

list row 2 : [11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20]

list row 3 : [21][22][23][............................................]


any thoughts?
