Custom View not working
Store ID 105044
Page in question:

I have set up a custom view for my category T-shirts but can't get anything to show up. I have embedded [DFR:marine_tshirts] into my page and I am using a custom query for this view (c=T-Shirts). T-Shirts is the name of the category I want to pull from. I have also tried using the slug (t-shirts). I would love to use the category ID but haven't figured out where to find it.

It shows up when I don't use a custom query but it just goes down the page instead of 3 rows across.

Everything else I've done has worked great but I'm pulling my hair out over this. Please help.

The category ID is: 653277

You can find it in the URL when you click the category name:

The layout looks good to me, though. It's 3 products in 1 row.

Thank you so much for the help, I had figured out the layout issue so I got that one fixed. I didn't even think to look in the URL for the category ID.

Is there a way to drill down the query by specific products? As an example, I would like to take the products widget and include 3 specific products in it instead of random. Could I do this using the product ID or is there another way?
