    Hello,

    is it possible to change the News layout? I would rather have more entries shown rather than a few huge tiles displayed, but there seems to be no option for this, just to filter items in or out.

    Thanks,

    Ian

    Ian you can accomplish that by simply zooming your browser out.

    Or plug a bigger monitor into your laptop.

    Hi Brad,

     

    I am using a desktop with a 21 inch monitor and zooming does not work, it mostly just resizes the left hand menu, not the news layout.  I can send you a screenshot if you like - I'd just rather not publish it here.

    thanks

    Please email a screenshot to support@jostle.me and they will help you sort this Ian. I use the zoom-out trick on NEWS often.

    Is it possible to change the grid layout for News view? For example, from a 4 column to a 3, 2 or 1 column grid?

    Yes, it is responsive. Zoom your browser in and out to adjust the number of columns you want, with 2 being the minimum.

    Not asking if it is responsive, want to know if you can define column layout grid in the backend.

    Did you try zooming your browser Ryan? That will adjust the number of columns for you. We have considered an in-app control for this, but it ends up adding clutter for something that few users are asking for.
