Advanced Product Sort Ordering in osCommerce

By | July 8, 2014

Had a new client approach me who had tried a number of ways to sort products in each category. She got one way to work, but that approach was to insert a number for sort ordering in the product adding/editing page…

My task therefore was to come up with something that;

1. works!
2. is very simple for the shopowner to use

Here’s what I came up with:

In the video, you can see that I changed the categories page to allow this shopowner to “grab” a product and slide it up or down the list of products. Once the product is in place, the sort order updates itself. In the shop side, this is instantly reflected in the ordering of the product display.

As we have “the matrix” on special offer, why not have that product at the top of the list ?
