Opencart Grid View by Default

Opencart Grid View by Default

This is a tutorial or how to guide to help you make OpenCart 1.5 display the grid view by Default.

This is really really simple and easy to do, and why there’s no option in the OpenCart Admin Area to specify this is beyond me, however.
Open > your themes folder > template > common > footer.tpl

And then before </body>

Add this code:

<script type="text/javascript">$(document).ready(function() { display('grid'); });</script>

And that’s it – you’re done!

Enjoy :)

While Googling also found this regarding the above:

in oc find this code:

if (view) {
} else {

at the bottom of the template of your interest, and change it to

if (view) {
} else {

i find that’s a better way to modify oc default view.
Bye bye

Great fix, thanks :) Can’t believe it was that easy to change, and that there isn’t an option in the admin panel for that..
