    Please note: Media Query shortcode has another great option and that is you can change the all of the above mentioned parameters for list view, but in case you don't update then the list views will use grid view parameters values.

    To customize list view parameters just add the keyword "list_" with above mentioned parameters e.g. to change the columns for list view use [mf_media_query list_columns="2"]
