No, but you can chain summary blocks together on the same page and use category filters to put 30 in one block and  a different 30 in the next block and so on. That is how I have a summary block page with 80 items total so far. Give the first 30 the same cat like group 1 and the next 30 give all the same cat name like group 2. Whatever you wish. You can use code to hide the categories if you wish. 

<style>
  .view-item .meta {
    display: none;
}</style>

Yes.

There's an excellent paid plugin called Lazy Summaries that adds the necessary code and allows you to display unlimited items - as well as offering many more features to improve Summary Blocks, including:

  • Specify the number of columns (instead of setting width of columns)
  • Specify a different number of columns for mobile devices
  • Use an alternative image on hover (Products)
  • Sort items
  • Cache items

Thank you, and how to choose your items?

Hi

I would like to create a summary block but it seems you are restricted to pulling 30 products from my ecommerce store.  Is there a way to override the 30? Or is there a free extension I can add?

Thanks

 

Hi, the status of summary block is still the same as per the thread. You can use a paid plugin called Lazy Summaries Load mentioned by @Paul2009 above or manually chain summary blocks together mentioned by @derricksrandomviews above.
