Category Pages (Portobello)

Learn how to configure the category page display in this section. In your control panel, go to Storefront > My Themes, and click the blue "Customize" button to launch Theme Editor. In the left hand column of the Theme Editor, click the panel labelled 'Category Pages'

Show "Shop by Price"

Enable this option to display a "Shop by Price" filter on Category Pages.

Please note that the filter will only appear when there are enough products with a range of prices on your store. These ranges are generated by the BigCommerce system and can't be controlled by the theme.

Enable Infinite Loading

Set the checkbox to enable infinite loading on the category page. 

There may be some performance issues on older devices if this is used alongside page animations.

Hide "number of products displayed"

This option is enabled (i.e. product count is automatically hidden) if Infinite Scroll is enabled and there is more than one category page.

When unchecked (and Infinite Scroll isn't enabled), the total number of products in a category is shown, along with a count of how many are currently displaying.

If the total is 100 or less, a link will appear with the option to "Show All". If there are more than 100 products in a category, the link will give the option to "Show 100 Products".

Hide "category image" in the category head

We recommend enabling this option, as category images are best used for displaying categories in a grid. Once clicked through to the main page, you can present content via the category description.

Number of Products per Page

Choose how many products to display on the Category, Brand and Search Results pages.

Note that we have set these lists to display options that divide into 3 or 4 columns so that the grids will display correctly across all devices.
