Hi Terry,
Currently Kerouac doesn’t support changing this option from the customization menu. But it can be changed by making changes to the PHP codes. I suggest you make a child theme if you want to change this.

Basically you need to make a few modifications to front-page.php and content-indexstory.php. They are found under wp-content\themes\kerouac

Here are sample front-page.php and content-indexstory.php that are modified to display six stories in each row. If you diff them with the files you have, you will notice there are relatively few differences, mainly some numbers.



 Template Name: All Stories

	query_posts( 'posts_per_page=12' );

	?><main class="kerouac-story-collection kerouac-home-collection kerouac-content">

		<div class="clearfix kerouac-collection-row ">


			$index = 0;

			if ( have_posts() ) :

				while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();

					$count = 12;

					get_template_part( 'content', 'indexstory' );

					if ( ( 0 == $index % 6 ) && ( $index < $count )) {

						printf('</div><div class="clearfix kerouac-collection-row">');


			else :

				get_template_part( 'content', 'none' );




<?php get_footer();



$coverimg 		= wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id(get_the_ID() ), 'kerouac-square-cover' );
$category 		= get_the_category();
if (get_the_category()) {
$firstCategory 	= $category[0]->cat_name;
} else {
	$firstCategory = '';


<div class="kerouac-collection-item col-md-2">
	<a href="<?php echo the_permalink();?>" class="kerouac-collection-item-link">
		<div class="kerouac-collection-item-inner">
			<div class="kerouac-collection-item-img" style="background-image:url(<?php echo $coverimg[0];?>);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-size:cover;"></div>
			<?php the_title('<h3 class="kerouac-collection-entry-title">','</h3>');?>
			<p class="kerouac-collection-meta">By <span><?php echo get_the_author();?></span> in <span><?php echo $firstCategory;?></span>

			<div class="kerouac-collection-item-excerpt"><?php echo wp_trim_words(get_the_excerpt(),8,'...');?></div>
			<span class="kerouac-collection-read-more"><?php echo apply_filters('kerouac_readmore_text', _e('Read More','kerouac'));?></span>
