Customization

On ASA 2’s admin page “Templates” you can customize the general options of template “Columns_layout“. These settings will effect every usage of this template.

Shortcode options

Besides the general settings, it is possible to overwrite template options per shortcode.

For example, to show 6 columns on large devices instead the generally configured amount, this shortcode would make the difference:

[asa2_smart_collection tpl="Columns_layout" cols_lg="6" cat_slug="demo-products" /]
