Happy to have helped, D'Nelle!  PHP does take a while to get the hang of!  :)

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Hey Elise -
Thanks so much for the help with the appropriate class to modify!
I got it to go to three columns, but it seemed to get squirrelly when I tried for four. either way, it looks better than it did before, so I think the client will be happier with this.

Now... if only I could understand how to manipulate PHP as well as I understand CSS LOL

Thank you!!!

Hi D'nelle,

There isn't a setting in Exchange to make these changes.  You can create custom CSS to create the look you're wanting, however.

Try out this code:

.it-exchange-product {
width: 25% !important;
float: left !important;
clear: none !important;

.it-exchange-featured-image {
width: 50px;

I'm not sure what size you're needing/wanting the images to be, so obviously you can change the 50px to whatever best suites your needs.  

Instead of editing the exchange.css file directly, you'll want to create your own style.css file and place it in an "exchange" directory in your theme (http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Exchange_FAQs:_How_Do_I_Create_Custom_Styles_for_Exchange).  

Give that a try and let us know how it goes or if you have any additional questions.

Hi there!

I'm working on http://berry-interesting.com/twostardesign/quilt-shop/product-catalog/

Since I'm still new to Exchange, I'm wondering where I can find the place to make customizations to the product catalog. the client has requested a four-product-across row in the product catalog as well as changing the sizes of the images.

I'm digging through the files myself but I thought that this would be a useful question for posterity and also thought someone might have a quicker answer to the question than I can come up with myself.

Thanks so much!
