So, while I still have access to support for a little bit...here's my custompress delema. I want to create a list of comic creator names in an alphabet controlled format. I have created the custom post type and taxonomies, etc needed to do everything I want. It seems like I'm 95% of the way there. I can put a creator to list under a letter, that letter will display what is assigned to it. See here: http://indyfestusa.com/creator_alphabet/creator-s/

now...the part I can't seem to figure out, is how to get rid of seeing the whole post for each entry in the list, and JUST have the name, clickable as it already is, and list it alphabetically under that list...as Shires, Irwin should not be above Shires, Ian...

what file is controlling that? I have spent hours and hours digging through information and can't seem to get to a simple "how to do that". Thanks for any help sorting this out, literally!
