The module allows you set Grid view as the default product list view on shop pages. The specific pages (routes/layouts) are also configurable. No more theme or nasty code mods.
You also have to option to completely hide the List/Grid selector.

Important notes:
1. This module works only on themes that use the same layout and javascript code as the default theme.
2. Some themes, due to their highly customized nature and lack of developer interest in compatibility, do not load modules on all but some of the pages (routes/layouts), and as a result the module may or may not work.
3. The module relies on OpenCart's Layouts feature to load itself on specific pages of the shop. If (some or all of) the layouts are deleted, the module will not be able to trigger the Grid view on those pages that do not have a layout defined.

- Upload the two extracted folders, "admin" and "catalog" to OpenCart's root folder. You should not get any file replacement warnings. If you do, double check to make sure you are not replacing any critical files (if you had an older version of the modules already installed, you will need to replace the old files).

- Select the layouts on which you want Grid mode to be enabled (Category and Manufacturers by default), save, then refresh the shop page to see the changes.

Non-English users:

This modules does not require translations for the frontend (shop side). You only need to copy and edit the translation file if you use a non-english admin interface. The english translation file is located at "admin/language/english/module/cr2gridenabler.php"

Custom themes:

The module should work right away with most themes without to need to copy/edit the template file.
The module is safe to use no matter which theme you are using. No permanent changes are performed to the themes. If Grid mode is not enabled on the selected pages, then the theme is too customized and the module does not work with it.
