Hi All :)

Does anyone know if it's possible to have my product list display in the same order that it is in my PageTree?
I'd like to be able to use the drag and drop to change the order of the products.

I know that if I was to move my Contact page to the top of the PageTree and save it it will move to the front spot in my navigation.
I kind of thought that the products would do the same.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ambient,

If you can find the right place in code, it should just be a matter of using the SiteTree "Sort" field for sorting. However, if your products are nested, that is a different story.

Hi Jeremy,

Could you expand a little on that? I've played around with
SiteTree::$default_sort =
static $default_sort =

But I can't get the products to display in the same order on the live site as they do in the Admin PageTree

If you are using the shop module, look at the ProductCategory class. You can pass ?sort=Sort in the url to sort by Sort, but you need to make sure it is in the sort options array:

    'Sort' => 'Default',
    'URLSegment' => 'Alphabetical',
    'Price' => 'Lowest Price'

Note that the default sort is 'FeaturedProduct', and is currently hard coded. I've made an issue here:
