Hi Vincent

Welcome and no you don't look stupid

I haven't used the hosted store version but on the none hosted version the columns are set by the CSS. Have a look in your style sheet for

div.product {
width: 32%;


32% gives three columns on the site I'm working on. So setting the % will give you the relevant number of columns. I'm sure someone will correct me if the Hosted Store version is different.

Expect the unexpected
Have you managed to sort the number of columns using?
div.product {
width: 32%;

How do I make the products in the database appear in the order I want. e.g. I have a product 8917 and a product 9114 I need the 9114 before 8917. Als is there a way to skip a place in the tabe the database sets. e.g. If i have 9114 and want a space between 311408917 can this be done?
Thanks

Hi Vincent, in your admin, under products, you can set a product order.
Two ways you can set this - Open each product and set a numerical value there, or use the "quick entry" drop down on the list of products and select product order, then set the numbers there.
Lower numbers show first.

Of course, you also want to go into your admin, "mains settings" page and set your product sort there as well. "Default Product Sort Order:" Set that to ^product order

This part of your question,

I apologize, but I'm not sure I understand what you want there. Perhaps show an example.

Thanks,
David

Hi Vincent
Could it be you just want to display 9 products per page? The number of products per page can be set in the admin main settings page.

I understand about the number of products per page. However I have approximately 3700 products in 25 categories and about 40 sub categories. To keep the product in a logical order e.g. like products but different styles There are times when I need to skip a cell or two to make my client happy. Can this be done . I have tried several ways but no luck. Thanks

Hi Vincent, when you say, skip a "cell" or two... Are you referring to products showing on the products pages?
I'm not sure I fully understand what you want to do.
Do you have a page you can show us so we can fully understand what you want to do?

It is possible to set the order products show on the product pages, is that what you want to do?

Thanks,
David

Hi Vincent
I was going to take a look at the error but can't seem to reproduce it. Can you let me know the URL of a page that is going wrong?

Hi Vincent
The reason that page is erroring is because there is no product specified. It shouldn't error and I'll fix that now so you get a proper message saying the product is not found, but if you add a product id, ie change this...
proddetail.php?prod=
...to something like this...
proddetail.php?prod=yourprodid
Then it will stop erroring.

Hi Vincent
Would creating a dummy product which is invisible help? In the admin products page, if you use the "Quick Update..." to choose "Custom CSS Class" for this new dummy product you created and add a class name say "invisibleproduct". Then in your style sheet add this...

div.invisibleproduct{
visibility:hidden;
}

That should leave a space where the product would have been.

Hi Vincent
As it happens I'm a Brit but of Irish origin (and got named after Saint Vincent de Paul as the Irish tend to name everyone after saints.) Have a great 4th of July too!

As it turns out my client does not want any prices listed I have the database set to O for the price. However I cant find where to remove the price fro the cart or the totals. Can you tell me where to go to remove all prices from the site.

Hi Vincent

For zero price anywhere across the store put this in your includes file:

For PHP version $nopriceanywhere=TRUE;

For ASP version nopriceanywhere=TRUE;

This will completely strip prices from the product listings and shopping cart for example in situations where quotes can be requested by ordering.
