I would like my site product pages to appear in grid view by default. There is a VQMod xml file for this, however it doesn't seem to work for me. It may be because it wasn't configured for the version I am running. I don't mind modifying the tpl files but I don't know which ones need to be modified to accomplish this. It seems as if there have been others with version that have had success. I would like to do the same. Anyone know how to do this?

Hi USAeshopFrance,

It's possible that a version incompatibility could be the issue. I'm not sure which VQMod extension you are working with, so if you want to update your question or add a comment below with that information, please feel free. I did find this information about a VQMod that will allow you to show products in a grid view:

<a href="" target="new">Grid View By Default</a>

Another option is to install a theme like <a href="" target="new">Ampang Jaya</a> which gives you the option of changing between list and grid view within the theme.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
