How to fasten shed floor to concrete column footing?

Hello, This is my first post on diy.

I am putting in a corner shed that 10x10 and has a corner removed ie. the door will be at an angle. The shed has 5 corners.

I've decided to use 2x6's for the floor and have the floor rest on concrete footings set 4' in the ground.

There are 8 footings. One for each corner, one between each of the back sides and one to support the door step.

My main question is, how should I fasten the floor to the concrete ?

Thank you.

Go on the Simpson Strong Tie web site and look at the post bases and caps.
Got a picture of this lay out?

From looking at the site, I can't see too many options. The elevated post base might work for #2, 5 and 8.

Would an anchor bolt with a block work - with the floor being connected in some way?

I need to make sure if I set anything in the concrete that I have some wiggle room when placing the floor.
