collective.gridlisting

Adds a Behavior to manipulate various listing appearance settings using Bootstrap 5 (column layout) and patternslib (masonry).

This behavior is automatically enabled for "Folder" and "Collection" when you install it.

Features

  • Adds new view template "Grid listing" for "Folder" and "Collection"
  • You get a new "Grid listing" tab when editing a Folder or a Collection where you can set various options for the listing template.

Get started

  1. Install collective.gridlisting in the Add-ons controlpanel
  2. Go to a folder and select Grid listing from the Display menu
  3. Edit the folder and go to the Grid listing tab
  4. You can enter CSS classes for the grid items and/or enable Masonry layout.

Grid setup

The grid structure is set up as follows:

Container row

Column

Column content

text image

You can define css classes for each of those containers.

For example if you simply want a responsive 4/2/1 column layout you can set the Container row CSS class to:

row-cols-1 row-cols-lg-2 row-cols-xl-4

You can also define borders, margins and paddings for the column content with Column content CSS Class:

border border-primary m-2 p-2

And you can further experiment with gutters or backgrounds.

Inside the column, the text and image information can be defined separately. You can for example simply switch the order of text/image with:

Column content text: col order-2

Column content image: col order-1

or put the image above the text with:

Column content text: col-12 order-2

Column content image: col-12 order-1

For more information on the CSS definitions see the Bootstrap documentation:

https://getbootstrap.com/docs/5.3/layout/grid/

Special Example: Card listing

The following values gives you a listing with cards, cell height 100% and image at the top:

  • Container row: row-cols-3 (3 columns)
  • Column: pb-3 (spacing below card)
  • Column content: card h-100 (card outline, 100% cell height)
  • Column content text: order-2 card-body (text below image)
  • Column content image: order-1 card-img-top (image above text)

et voila!

NOTE: If you enable Masonry layout you have to remove h-100 from Column content and you have a masonry card listing like shown here: https://getbootstrap.com/docs/5.3/examples/masonry/
