Sort order

Post by trophy »

I have a problem with the sorting of products by name.
I have products like this, "ARP Pinion 72P 9 Tooth ARP 7209"
Now if I add another product like this, "ARP Pinion 72P 10 Tooth ARP 7210"
When viewed the 10 tooth will be above or before the 9 tooth.
But if I put a zero or a full stop before the 9, like 09 or .9, then the 9 will be above or before the 10.
In the old OSC E commerce it was not a problem.
All help appreciated.

Found the problem in the site viewing.
Went to product listing and found the sort options available.

What I have not been able to fix is the sort order in "categories/ products column"
With out the zero or decimal point the single digit products are at the bottom.

I had a similar problem with some electronic components and their product sizes. I eventually changed the model numbers so they were all in order and changed the sort setting within the code to sort by model number.

I did contact a few developers a few years ago and heard nothing back about actually adding a product sort order to the product listings within a category. It may now be possible as phoenix has changed since the early days. You may get a positive reaction from one of the developers now.

This add-on enables product sorting (as well as a lot more) - app.php/addons/paid_addon/zipur_product_manager/

Thanks for the replies,
The add-on looks great for what I want to do, also has an easy price updater which was going to be my next question.
