Collection list section
The collection list is a flexible section that gives you the ability to showcase your collection in multiple ways. Here’s a breakdown of its settings.
Heading: Set a title for this section. This is optional.
Link label + Link: With these settings you can create a button that will appear at the top right corner of your collection list section. For example if you have used this section to showcase a list of popular collections, you can add a button with a link to your “All collections” page.
Card ratio: This option allows you to select the ratio of the collection card that will appear on the section. “Auto – Best fit” tries to fit the image in the card’s size (default option). “Adapt to first image” means that the ratio of all cards will be the inherent ratio of the first card’s image. Portrait and Landscape will force the images to be displayed as portraits or landscapes respectively. Only applies on the “Grid” and “Slider” layouts.
Show title: Toggles the visibility of the collection title.
Show description: Toggles the visibility of the collection description (If available).
Show button: Toggles the visibility of the collection button with a link to the collection page.
Desktop layout: With the “Grid” option you can create a typical grid layout of collections. A “Slider” option is also available that lets you create a simple slider layout. For this to work, the number of collections added in this section must be greater than the number of collections visible as set by the following setting Number of columns on desktop. Lastly, a “Mosaic” option is available for masonry-like layouts. An example of this setting is available on the homepage of our demo website (check the “Popular categories” section).
Number of columns on desktop: Sets the number of columns (1,2,3 or 4). This option only applies on the “Grid” or “Slider” layouts.
Stack on mobile: By default, Athens will try to create a flexible scrollable horizontal list of collections on mobile. If you prefer to create a vertical list of collections though, simply enable this option.
Color scheme: Select one of the predefined color schemes as defined in Theme settings > Colors. For more information regarding the color schemes please refer to our article about creating your own color scheme.
The section spacing settings gives you the option to adjust the top & bottom section spacing values. Please note: If you select a color scheme with a background color, these settings will affect the spacing between the top or bottom of the section and the content of the section.
This section is consisted of “Collection” blocks, with the following settings:
Collection: Set the collection for the particular block.
Image: Optionally override the collection’s main image with a custom one for this block.
Overlay background: Optional gradient background to be used as an overlay (over the image and under the content).
Button label: Optionally override the default button label (“Shop” followed by the collection’s name).
Display button as text link: Optionally make the button be a textual link. Applies when the button is visible and when it is also not a textual link.
Button color scheme: Choose the color of the button. Applies when the button is visible and when it is also not a textual link.
Heading size: The size of the collection’s title.
Text color: The text color of the collection’s content (title and description).
Content position: Position the content (heading, subheading, button) anywhere you want on the collection.
