V17.1.2 Shop anomoly when extend to width of browser selected  en

Author: Esahc ..

If I create a product catalogue I can define the number of products displayed on each row.

However

If I extend to width of browser the items get set to a fixed size and less fit on each row.

One would expect the same number to fit but the product entries to become wider.

Please see attached project, home page fixed width, page 1 extended to width of browser. Same settings in catalogue for both.

Fixed width

Extended to browser width (limited to 7 on my monitor with browser at 100%)

Perhaps rather that cards per row the setting should allow pixel width of each card :-)

Hi Esahc.

Was this project created directly on the latest version of v17?

I can definitely see the issue in the project you attached. I tried creating a new one though as well.

In this one apparently, I can successfully create 10 products and then set only 2 visible per row, even though I extend the row.

I'll attach it here. Please try again on a new project and let me know if this seems to be the case for your current project only

Thank you

Stefano

Stefano, yes v17.1.2 new project, I downloaded and imported yours.

It works fine up to 7 (with browser set to 100%) as it does with my project.

Add a few more products, set cards per row to 10, view and you will see 7 cards displayed. Now turn off extend to width of browser window and view. You will see 10 cards across.

When Extend to Width of Browser is set in step 4 the maximum number of cards displayed will always be 7 (on my 1920x1200 monitor)

Please confirm if this is your experience as well??

Hi Esahc.

I was able to verify the behavior now and proceeded to notify the developers of this.

I will be sure to promptly notify you here as soon as news on this becomes available.

Thank you once again for taking the time to verify and report this

Hi Esahc.

I received word from the developers.

In the software, a default minimum width per each product card has been set which is unmodifiable. This width is set at 250px under which no card can be displayed IF in FullWidth mode.

For this reason, in FullWidth only, this default size will always be preferred to the actual number of products per row.

The developers are aware of this discrepancy between the two types of display and are currently discussing possible improvements for this

I hope I was able to shed some light on this problem for you

Thank you

Stefano
