Columnar Layout for Product Listing pages

Displaying products in columns

Since 1.5.7, Zen Cart includes a configuration setting called Columns Per Row. This setting allows you to display multiple columns of products per row on the Product Listing page.

Note: Your template must also support this setting. Both the Responsive Classic and Bootstrap templates support this setting. Many older templates use a version of the Column Grid Layout plugin, which is deprecated by this setting.

This is what it looks like when Columns Per Row is set to 3. 3 Columns per Row



This is what it looks like when Columns Per Row is set to 1. The value 1 may be considered to be “rows mode.”

1 Column per Row

Note that the setting Columns Per Row only applies to Product Listing pages, not other listing pages such as All Products or New Products.
