Let Buyer Pick How Many Items to View on Page

Postby Paula » Mon Jan 14, 2013 3:20 pm

It would nice to have a feature where buyers can choose how many items they can view per page. I see some websites that have the ability to let buyers choose from a dropdown box or something similar, to choose say, 30, 50, 100 items, etc. Thanks!

ShopSite pages are static html (better for search engines) so it is pretty hard to have the number of products on the page change on the fly.

However, this can be done on search results pages since they are dynamically displayed. If someone does a search for a particular term, and you have the feature enabled, they can change how many search items are on a page.

You configure this under Preferences > Search Settings > Search Layout using the fields Maximum number of results (0 = show all): and Results per page: and Step Value: If you leave the Maximum number of results set at 0 then it will be possible to display all results. (If you have a huge number of products you could set it to 50 or 100 etc so everything won't display). The Results per page is the initial number that will display on the page. The Step Value enables a pull down with number going from the Results per page value to the Maximum number per page in increments of the Step Value. So if you have 21 products on the page and the Results per page is 5 the Step pulldown will have 5, 10, 15, 20, All. When the shopper selects a number from the list the page will refresh and show that many products.
