display multiple columns category view

8 years 9 months ago #2714 by gymrat
It's 2010 and I'm excited about the new version of Flexi. Hope it gets here fast as I think it's the best CCK for Joomla.

I have a question regarding the template. I've looked around and there doesn't seem to be a post that relates to what I want to ask. Right now, when you set a menu item to Category view, the page will list all the items in a single column. So if there are lots of items in a category then the user would need to scroll down in order to view them all. Is there a way to change this single column to multiple columns? Virtuemart has an option to enter number of products per row. Can this be done with Flexicontent? Thank you.

With Flexicontent, this and most parameters are stored in the Category instead of the menu item. Have you looked there? Make sure to choose "blog" for your desired layout under Parameters: Standard (unless you've made a new template). Then under Layout, adjust Parameters: Blog to taste...

You can choose one or two columns for "intro items". If you want everything in two columns, just choose zero for the number of leading items.

you need to edit your css or php file (category_item.php)
if you use css3 you can

Thanks Micker,

line 351 to 255 in com_flexicontent/templates/blog/category_items.php

//added to intercept more columns (see also css changes)
$intro_cols = $this->params->get('intro_cols', 2);

$intro_cols_classes = array(1=>'one',2=>'two',3=>'three',4=>'four');
$classnum = $intro_cols_classes[$intro_cols];
echo $intro_cols; is always 2
Do you think it has some where else to setup this value or we have to edit the value here?
