Show Products On The Same Line Within Category


I want to show "group" certain products on the same "line" when using "GRID" view.

Grid view is the nicest for our store so we are using it by default and disabling the other views.

The issue we have now is that sometimes a customer will not see another product of similar type which is on the next line.

We have a grid of 4 products per line.

I have enabled manual sorting by position and edited the positions.

The problem is that sometimes if there are two similar products on position 8 and 9, the 8th product will be on the 2nd line and 9th on 3rd line (4 items per line...)


Line 1 (product 1, 2, 3, 4)

Line 2 (product 5, 6, 7, 8 )

Line 3 (product 9, 10, 11, 12)

I want product 8 and 9 to be on the same line, however there are other products in the category and they are in positions 1 to 7, they cannot be moved anywhere else due to how we setup each product type.

So ideally there would be functionality to insert a blank line (product?) into spot 8 to move product #8 to #9 and put it on the same line as 9 etc.

To overcome this I've created a blank dummy product which sits at position 8 and this moves product 8 to the 3rd line (becomes product 9) so its together with product 9 which is now product 10...

I would have to do this in each case where products are not on the same line for each category.

This means creating quite a few dummy products per category if the category has over 100 items etc.

Cannot find any addon like this... any suggestions?

May be the following module can help you

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll check it out!
