Adjust your SHOPP Presentation Settings

Shopp is a great e-commerce plugin but some default settings are… not so great. One of them is in your Presentation settings. You will find these settings in the Shopp menu of your WordPress Admin Panel.

By default the number of products per row is 3, while the number of products per page is set to 25.

This means if you allow people to use grid view (which is available by default) and there are 26 products in your category things start to look out of balance.

25 of your products will show up on the first page, leaving two empty spots at the bottom, like this:

X X X
X X X
X X X
X X X
X X X
X X X
X X X
X X X
X

and because there are 26 products to display, Shopp will generate a second page with just that one last product. This last product could easily be displayed on page one.

Check your Presentation settings and adjust the settings if they are not balanced.
If you want 3 products in a row, then set products per page to 21, or 24, or 27, and so on.
If you want 4 products in a row, then set products per page to 24, or 28, or 32, and so on.

You get my drift, right? 🙂
