Hi

You can see at http://www.northpiltonworks.com/shop that the Featured > Home Page is Bunched to the left and looks awfull.
Need it, so all three featured products are spread out to the right. Have tried all settings and resizing in the Module Featured > Home

I understand I have lost left margin. Unless there is some magic! that would allow Featured > Home Page. to have full width of the page, giving me more space for a extra product. Thanks.

If you remove the category menu in the left column you should get full width on featured. It's really not needed on the homepage as you have all the menus up top.

I want the category menu on the left. I read that "double choicemenu" improves click through rate.

There must be away to alter the size of the boxes around the products in Featured Please

just in case, a quick-step solution, by getting rid of this Grid styled Featured Product Layout for good,
and make a nice Product Listing out of them, by changing one single Source Code Line, or then,
use a simple VqMod, to make it work the same way, if you don't want to touch the Source ! ;)
like: (Default THEME File linked only!)
this one here:
Featured Products displayed as Listing instead of Grid View
http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=26598
------
Or then, in the Source, change this:

Code: Select all

<h3><?php echo $heading_title; ?></h3>
<div class="row">
  <?php foreach ($products as $product) { ?>
  <div class="product-layout col-lg-3 col-md-3 col-sm-6 col-xs-12">
to this:

Code: Select all

<h3><?php echo $heading_title; ?></h3>
<div class="row">
  <?php foreach ($products as $product) { ?>
  <div class="product-layout product-list col-xs-12">
in the:
catalog\view\theme\default\template\module\featured.tpl
File, in Line 4 !
from my personal point of view, anything looks better than the default way of placing this,
especially on smartphone-Resolutions... :D
Good Luck ;)

PS. The layout could be visually refined, and so made 'visually valid' for all Product Listings, when done
in the stylesheet.css file. Just to mention this. And it will function with all Browser/Phone resolution
settings, as well.

I also published a similar solution yesterday, on this forum somewhere, about doing this in the Product Page, to display the RELATED Products in a sorted and so much better looking listing form.

Thanks for that and does look a lot better in a list format http://www.northpiltonworks.com/shop/

I would still like the box format. Boxes would be wider and more square. Is there a solution for adjusting the size of the boxes?
