How Can I Have My Home Specials Display in a Grid?
Our CORE templates display Home Specials in the form of a carousel by default, similar to the homepage carousel module we offer. However, this display option may not work for every merchant. Some merchants would prefer to have all of their home specials visible at one time, or they may prefer a more static home page. Because of this, this article goes over how you can edit your store's home page to display them in a grid fashion as products typically do on a category page.
Please note that this article is aimed at merchants with non-modified home.html files. If you are using a modified or custom template, or an older template altogether, these instructions may not be accurate for your store.
To start, we first need to access the template's HTML code for the home page. To do so:
Within this file, we will need to replace a section of code. With your keyboard, you can press CTRL and F and look for FEATURE_MENU. You will find a block of code that looks like the following screenshot:
Highlight this entire section starting and ending with the two FEATURE_MENU tags, and we are going to replace it with the following:
After doing so, save your changes. Once this has been done, you should now see your Home Specials displayed without a carousel.
You can further customize aspects such as the sorting, amount of products on display, and more using the Store Settings. See our article here for more information.
