I have product images that I want to appear in a view. Easy enough. At the same time I have 6 different product types. So what I'm trying to do is create a view that is 6 columns across. Each column is a different product type. Then each product will fall into 1 of 6 categories. Some columns will have 4 items, some 7. I cannot seem to do this with the "Grid" layout. Which seems the best way to do this. Any suggestions?
What I would do is add a taxonomy with 6 "product-types" terms, then add a term reference field in contentype, make "6 content pane views" displaying your contentype and filtering on term reference, and with panels module (or display suite) do a 6 column display with all fields that you require, each view will have it's own column, and you are done.
