Pin products to top? Mark as important? Or similar
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:46:54 am »
Hello,

We want some products to appear first in the lists, independent of the sorting method. Like marking them as pinned or important.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Hello,

Yes, it can be done by little customization.

We can do that. Let me know how we can proceed?

Best Regards,

Do you mean it can be done with standard VM settings? Or are you suggesting a custom modification? We already have a programmer who does custom work on demand. We just want to know if this is already possible out of the box. Thank you

I just tried it. It doesn't change the ordering of the product (in category page).

btw... Default product sort order is set to "Product Name". We prefer alphabetical sorting as default, for normal products.

To show featured products turn their display on in your Joomla menu store item, on the subordinated category tab. Where they display is template dependant.

EvanGR, most website display   "top list" before so else you use the featured list or write your own module or use this module https://shop.st42.fr/en/products/products-any-ways.htm, but other should exist with similar results as my module.
