How to Hide Sort By Category Box
« on: March 02, 2018, 01:58:41 am »
I'm trying to get the section that says sort by to go away on my front page. I'm not able to hide the sort by category view. I don't even see a box to change it. There is no category browse page box where it should be according to the tutorial video I am watching. Please help.

Tutorial link:


Virtuemart 3.2.12
Joomla 3.4.3

Viewing a 3 year old video for an older version of VirtueMart is not much use.

You can remove the orderby section by editing and overriding components/com_virtuemart/views/category/tmpl/default.php
or hide the section with a css override:  .orderby-displaynumber  {display:none;}

You Joomla version is very old and insecure. Updating is recommended.
