Find a Layout Switcher widget and put it on the page as well. Then, proceed to the settings; check their description in the Layout Switcher widget overview.

Pick the listing in the Select a Listing Grid widget field.

For this tutorial, we left the default “Grid” and “List” options and added several custom layouts by pressing “Add Item.”


We recommend having one layout set as default by activating its Is Default Layout toggle. The default “Grid” option represents such a layout, so it can be left without changes.

We created the “Two Columns” layout by setting the Columns Number value to “2” in the layout Settings tab.

We called the next layout “Just Prices.” It adds another listing, not the one set by default. To enable this functionality, we opened the Settings tab and selected the needed Listing.

We also changed the Columns Number value to “2.”

Things to know

Items can be dragged up and down to change their order.

Next, we added an Icon to the labels. The field for attaching the icon is in the Content tab of each layer option.

Now, the icons are displayed next to the items.

We also adjusted the style settings to highlight the enabled layout option. To do this, we changed the Buttons style in the Style > Buttons > Active tab.

However, styling is optional. Once the page was ready, we clicked the “Publish/Update” button.

Now, every layout button on the front end can be clicked to see the needed layout.

The “Grid” layout represents the default Listing Grid. It is a three-column content section.

The “List” displays items in one column.

The last button shows a different listing called “Tours.”

Things to know

When switching to a different Listing, the AJAX loading will be activated, and the content will appear after a short delay. When switching between default layouts, the content will load instantly.
