How can I acheive the same thing in this case on the homepage where I have the left-nav disabled.

In this case, you need to adjust the module that disables the left-nav and implement 5-products-in-a-row design for product table. Registered this improvement in our TO-DO list.

If you want, I can help you with designing this simple mod.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

OK, since there are two of you, I believe, I need to show some code examples % ) Let's clarify a bit, shall I give an example of the mod that simply displays 5 products in a row on home page instead of 3?

If so, I will schedule some time for this task and will publish the mod, once it is ready.

Question Re: XC5 Homepage layout

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the response on this one! I'm looking to do 4 items / columns but it should be easy enough to adapt it if you do 5, etc. I looked at your current module and it's quite simple! Almost too simple because I'm wondering how everything works with so little code. It appears that there is a function for turning on / off the categories or something? Then it looks like you are checking if the page is the main/home page and telling the value to be 'false.'

I started with my own basic layout mod by following some instructions I found in the X-Cart 5 guide and am making some sense of the way things work. Are there anymore tutorials and/or guides that I should be referencing if I want to create some mods? I'll probably make a new thread to explain what I want to do and get some opinions from other users who may also be interested.

Thanks!

Yes, X-Cart 5 code is quite terse and little pieces of code can force quite big changes.

http://kb.x-cart.com is the only source of docs we have. However, now I have a big goal to improve dev docs for X-Cart 5 and I am focusing on it right now, so the docs will be expanding in the near future. You can post suggestions about what you would like to see there, so I could better adjust my plans.

Also, I will be giving updates on forums about work I have done.

Anyway, I scheduled the mod about how to change number of products on home page and I will update this thread once I am done with it.

Tony.

Since 5.1 is a new branch, all 3rd party modules must be updated in order to be working.

The update process is quite simple though. You should change the Main.php script of your module and make sure that the getMajorVersion() method returns 5.1 instead of 5.0. After that your module will start working with 5.1.x core.

Hi Tony

I too need to change the number of products in categories page to 5. It would be very helpful, if you could complete it.

Thanks
