Product Sorting is not working
« on: May 13, 2020, 19:00:04 pm »
1. Product sorting in category page is not working now. When we tries to sort by product name or SKU or whatever, no results came.

Scenario : Joomla SEO is On, - VM SEO disabled.

2. When VM Seo enabled - we are getting page not found in the server error .

Tried with changing the template to default, FYI.

re-enabled the VM SEO and it all works again

for some strange reason ( though have no idea why VM SEO was off) the non sef urls like

index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=category&virtuemart_category_id=684&virtuemart_manufacturer_id=0&keyword=&Itemid=147&orderby=ordering

come back as

felting-products/view/category/virtuemart_category_id/684/virtuemart_manufacturer_id/0/keyword/orderby/product_sku

which when un SEF'd equal

index.php?Itemid=147&option=com_virtuemart&view=category&virtuemart_category_id=684&virtuemart_manufacturer_id=0&keyword=orderby&limitstart=0

then it does as asked .. looks for a search term orderby

Moral: leave settings alone in VM that you aren't sure what they do!
