1. LiveJournal has an extra layer of restrictions on the size of your shop. You may have to make shop wider or thinner to fit your page. You can do this by changing the numbers in the last line of code (see below). This code tells you how many pixels your shop will be. You can change both the width and height of your shop.
To give you some guidance, here are the approximate pixel sizes:
For Normal (Portrait) Layout
3 Products: Width=560
4 Products: Width=720
5 Products: Width=900
For Wide (Landscape) Layout
2 Products: Width=560
3 Products: Width=840
For Portrait (Big) Layout
3 Products: Width=830
For Blog Shop Layout
Big: 900px (widget fits into an Ad-free LJ Theme)
Small: 750px (widget fits into LJ Theme with Ads)
*For Livejournal users, we don't recommend you to have 4 to 5 items per row under the Portrait (Big) Theme as the shop will exceed the standard Livejournal's layout
You can also adjust the Height of your shop so that you can view all your products on one page. You may have to play with the pixel sizes in order to make it look just right for your LJ site.
