How to remove example collections without changing size of adjacent collections?

How to remove example collections without changing size of adjacent collections?

Theme: Minimal

 

On my last row of collections I'm only using 2 of the 4 collections.  As such the other 2 say "Example Collection Title".  If I attempt to delete or hide the unused collection the used collections on the same row increase in size.  Is there a way to delete the Example Collections while keeping the other ones the same size?

Hi @engine-swaps ,
This is Theodore from PageFly - Shopify Page Builder App.

There are limitations with the Minimal theme: deleting unused collections won't keep used ones the same size. Here's what you can do:

  • Hide Unused Collections: Simplest option, keeps data but removes text. Look for "Navigation" or "Menus" settings to hide collections.
  • Theme Code Modification (Advanced): Edit theme code (requires Shopify Liquid knowledge) to adjust the grid layout for fewer collections. Duplicate your theme first!
  • Consider a Different Theme: Some themes offer more customization for collection layouts.

Best regards,

Editing the theme might be the only way.  When I hide unused collections it makes the other 2 in the same row much larger than the rest.  See picImage 7-2-24 at 8.47 AM.jpeg

I wish it were that easy.  When I hide those collections it makes the remaining 2 much larger than the others.  See pic
