WooCommerce: One Product Per Row @ Shop Page

By default, WooCommerce displays 4 products per row in the shop page. This is nice for almost any ecommerce website, however in certain cases you might want to change this setting in order to show full-width products (a.k.a. one product per row).

In this post we’ll look at the alternatives you have in regard to changing this setting, and also some CSS adjustments to make the 1-product-per-row shop page look better. Enjoy!

Our goal: a 1-product per row layout on the Shop page

add_filter( 'loop_shop_columns', 'loop_columns', 999 );

function loop_columns() {
   return 1; 
}

CSS Snippet: Centered Layout @ WooCommerce Shop Page

Once you have “1 product per row” in place, you might get a result similar to this (basically, despite you have one product per row, they don’t take full width and therefore the layout doesn’t look right):

Despite we have one product per row, they won’t take full width.

Which means we also need to make use of some CSS in order to move the products and center align them.

ul.products li.product .woocommerce-loop-product__link {
    margin: 0 auto;
}

ul.products li.product .button {
    margin: 0 auto;
}

The final result is shown at the top of this page.

If you also want to change the dimensions of your product images, go to WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > WooCommerce > Product Images and make sure the width of your Catalog images is at least 1000px.

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.

  1. Is it also possible to make this function true for mobile only? Since I would like my site to show 3 columns on desktop and only 1 for mobile. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Mark, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!
