What’s in this topic

This topic features a step-by-step illustration of how to change the number of products displayed in a row on a product page, keeping up with the responsive design approach used by Magento out-of-the-box themes.

The described flow is applicable only for themes that inherit from the out-of-the-box Blank or Luma theme .

Changing the number of products in a row

OrangeCo wants to make their products more visible by decreasing the quantity of products in a row displayed on a catalog page, so that each product takes more space.

In the basic Blank theme, the number of products in a row for each breakpoint is the following (for the 2-column page layout):

  • 1024px and more (desktop): four products
  • 768px (tablet): three products
  • 640px and less (mobile): two products

In their custom Orange theme, OrangeCo wants to have the least number of products in a row for the desktop and tablet view, namely:

  • Desktop: three products
  • Tablet: two products
  • Mobile: two products

The Orange theme inherits from the Blank theme.

To change the products quantity, OrangeCo take the following steps:

  1. Copy the <Magento_Blank_theme_dir>/Magento_Catalog/web/css/source/module/_listings.less file.
  2. Put it in the corresponding location in their Orange theme directory: app/design/frontend/OrangeCo/orange/Magento_Catalog/web/css/source/module/_listings.less
  3. Make the changes in the code. The following image illustrates which section of the file they change, the modified lines are highlighted:

After OrangeCo applies their theme, the catalog page of their store looks like following:
