  • Backend default language—the default language of the Administration panel.

  • Elements per page—the default number of elements (like orders or products) displayed on one page of the list.

  • Default WYSIWYG editor—the WYSIWYG editor to be used in the Administration panel.


    You can select TinyMCE or Redactor, or you can choose to disable WYSIWYG. Starting with version 4.6.3, you can also select Redactor II.

  • Elements per page—the number of other items displayed on one page.

  • Number of columns in the product list—the number of columns with products on a product list page. This setting applies to the Grid layout only.

  • Estimate taxes using default address on cart/checkout pages—if you enable this setting, customers without their own address in the database will see the taxes calculated for the default customer address.

  • Display prices with taxes on category/product pages if the method of calculating taxes is based on a unit’s price—if you enable this setting, product prices displayed on the product and category pages will include taxes.

  • Display mini thumbnail images as a gallery—if you enable this setting, multiple product thumbnails will be displayed as a small gallery.

  • Use “Value changer” for the Quantity field—if you enable this setting, then the + and - buttons will be displayed next to the Quantity field; these buttons increase and decrease the quantity of selected items.

  • Display the “Pagination section” on the top of the listed object—if you enable this setting, the pagination bar will appear not only at the bottom, but also at the top of a list of objects that consists of multiple pages.

  • Default image previewer—select one of the supported image previewers.

  • Product detailed page view—choose the default template for the product details page. If necessary, the other templates can be selected separately for every product (on the General tab) or category (on the Views tab).

  • Display product details in tabs—if you enable this setting, product details (description, features and so on) will be arranged in multiple tabs.


    To manage product tabs, go to Design → Product tabs.

Product List Layouts Settings

  • Available product list views—select the available ways of displaying the product list on the storefront. A customer will be able to select any of these ways.

  • Product list default view—select the default way of displaying the product list.

  • Use the selected view for current category or search page only—if you enable this setting, customers will be allowed to select only the look of the category or product list page that they are browsing at the moment. That choice won’t be saved when moving to a different category, and the default look will be used there.

    When this setting is disabled, the look selected by a customer will apply to all category and product list pages that the customer visits during one session.

  • Available product list sortings—the possible ways of sorting products in the product list:

    • Oldest/Newest Items first—by the product creation date.
    • Position—by the positions of products on the list.

    • Price—by product prices.
    • Popularity—by product ratings.
    • Bestsellers—by the number of sold items.
    • Discount—by the difference between Price and List price of products.
  • Product list default sorting—the default order in which products are sorted on a product list page.

  • Enable quick view—if you enable this setting, the Quick view button will appear on the product list when the customer hovers a cursor over the product; that button will open a pop-up window with product information.
