How to change to 4 items per row instead of 3 when right column disabled.

Hi, my site have 5 categories and for 2 categories I have disabled the right column using the 1 column layout. But problem is items per row is still 3. Now I need 4 items per row for these category pages.

Can this be done? I went in to system/config/jm products and change item per row to 4 but no change in frontend.

Thank you.

Some categories are using 1 column layout and some are using 2 columns with right bar layout. I need the 1 column layout to have 4 items per row, 4 columns instead of 3. The home page is fine, just need the category pages and also the advanced search result page to be 4 items per row.

Please see this demo link and you will know what I’m talking about. Basically all pages who uses the 1 column layout is display 3 items per row which should be 4.…on=&sku=&price[from]=0&price[to]=9999

please copy paste entire link to your browser.

Hi vertex615,

Please open file: \app\design\frontend\default\jm_scerif (your default theme)\layout\catalog.xml

Find the code that is something like:


<action method="setColumnCount"><count>3</count></action>

change 3 to 4: desired amount of products per row.

There are 2 occurrences of the code in catalog.xml so get them both to be sure. Then flush your magento cache and it should all be sweet

Its actually \app\design\frontend\default\jm_scerif (your default theme)\layout\catalogsearch.xml

I was able to make advanced search results 4 items per row. Thanks anyway.
