  • Product Sorting

    Is there a way to force the sort order to be by product name when viewing a category? I know that the user can do it manually with the dropdown in the header, but I want it to default so that products display as sorted by name when the user first sees the category page.

    There is an alphabet feature you can pay to have implemented. Since I sell DVD's, it was very handy for sorting genres. I think it ran me about $150 to have put in, because of the time it took Gonzalo & team to do. But none the less, it is available, it just costs a little. Maybe on version 3.0 it will be a free feature not to sure, but wanted to let you know!

      I belive what onering needs is actually on the next update. We`ve set it up so that you can specify what order the products are returned (you select the order per category), we also have a global setting, so if you wanted to have all of them sorted by name, you can just set it there.

      We had to delay this 2.1 update because we wanted to squeeze in a couple of more little things, but its almost ready! :)

        Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for.

          Is there a way to set the default sort format for products returned in a search? I have a feeling it is in one of the include files or an ASP file, but I would like to set all products returned by a search to sort by name.

          Anyone know how to do this?

            Came across this post while trying to do the same. After a bit of fidding, I found a solution.

            In the search box, add the folllowing inside the form, along with the other two input fields:

            <input type="hidden" name="sortby" value="3">

            What this does is add the sortBy parameter to the request, where 3 is the code for "sort by name."

            Hope this helps,
            Hugh

                  ha ha... wow! Well, I just saw it as a recent post and didn't bother to look at all the dates :)

                  likewise, I have no idea what version we're on.

                  Oh well... should pay more attention I s'pose

                    Might want to add that there is no need for the code given by hugh - it is an option available in the category setup now.

                      I'd like to have the Category default to be "sort by product name". Currently, under Category template, nothing is selected. Where do I set this up so that it doesn't need to be done manually with each new category? Maybe that is not what is meant by a "global setting"?
