    by default on demo i imported, my shop page has only 3 columns, but i would like it to have 4 or 5, where can i change this?
    thank you,

    Woocommerce does not let you do this with a setting, but you can change it by adding the following to your child theme’s functions.php file:

    function etch_child_loop_columns() {
    	return 5;
    add_filter('loop_shop_columns', 'etch_child_loop_columns');


    Hi joshua,
    thank you for such fast reply and for the info, however i’m not being able to make this change, due to my inexperience with wordpress;

    I placed the code on the functions.php file, but the site went down right away. I was able to put it back, but maybe this is because i don’t have the “child”-theme?

    I don’t know what this is or how this is created, is this an important thing to do?
    what are the consequences of not using a child theme?
    i saw the wordpress help that suggest we make one, if there are many functions to change, however when do i know those changes are being “too much”?

    thank you



    You should always make a child theme for edits like this regardless of how many.

    There is a child theme included with the package you download from ThemeForest under the “Developers” folder. Try uploading that and add the above code to its functions.php file.



    ah! Ok!
    i’ve upload the child theme and i placed the code on the functions.php, but nothing happened..
    i placed the code after what was already written there; should i make something different?

    i have another question regarding the shop:
    the shop is only one page, but i would like to make sub-pages were i can organize the products. I create a new page but how do i tell it that that page is as well a ahop, so the products should appear there?
    i alredy told the page her parent is the “shop”.

    thank you!



    Did you activate your child theme? If so, can you link to your site so I can take a look at the shop page?

    For separate shop pages, you might want to look into categories as an easy fix for what you’d like to do – http://chrislema.com/woocommerce-category-pages/
