Add More than 6 Collections to My Homepage

I am using the Venture theme, but it will only let me have up to 6 collections displayed on my homepage. I am using collections as my main homepage navigation, so I would like to have about 12 collections displayed. Does anyone know how I can add additional collections? Does it require code editing? Have any of you done this before successfully? I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

Hi Curtiss,

Lisa here from the Shopify Support Team. 

It does require coding to show additional collections on the homepage. To do this go to:  Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Code > Sections > featured_collections.liquid

Once there take a look for this piece of code:

{
    "name": "Collection list",
    "class": "index-section",
    "max_blocks": 6,
    "settings": [
      {
        "type": "checkbox",
        "id": "stretch_collection_image",
        "label": "Use secondary image layout"
      }

You'll just need to change the 6 to a 12 and hit save. Now you can return to your theme editor to continue adding more collections to your homepage. 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Lisa,

I have had same need and just did change as you guide above. It worked! Thanks. But I encountered an other problem. Before change, the collection cards on homepage showed in grid with image. After change, the collection cards show in list without image. I would like to show them in grid with image. How can I do?

This is not a solution. I guess you didn't test it as it actually breaks things. After implementation the collection tiles do not show any images. Please update as to how to "fix" this solution.

 

TIA
