How to Create WooCommerce Product Grid and List View With Toggle Switch

By default, WooCommerce products are displayed in a grid format. While this is sufficient and would fit most online store designs, there may come a time where you’d want to show your products in a list format.

With the Woo Shop + module in the Divi Shop Builder plugin, you can offer both a list and grid view of your products, complete with a nifty toggle button that allows your customer to shift between the two views.

Now, your customers can switch between the two displays—grid view and list view—while they’re browsing through your store. Offering these two displays will create an amazing user experience for your customers.

Let’s dive in and find out how to create a product grid and list view with a toggle switch for your WooCommerce store.

Once you have installed and activated the Divi Shop Builder plugin on your Divi website, it’ll automatically add a new Woo Shop + module within the Divi Builder.

To begin using the Woo Shop + module, create a new page, add a section and row, and then add the Woo Shop + module.

If you don’t like the look of the toggles, head over to the Design tab in the Divi Builder and click on the Grid/List View Button option. Now you can edit every aspect of the toggle, from the icon color, hover styles, border settings, and more.
