Good Evening everybody,

Using Joomla 3.9.1.9 and VirtueMart VirtueMart 3.8.2 10325

No matter whether I set to ascending or descending sort by product name, the order of the items on screen stays the same.

I have also tried to sort by alias, since I thought this would be a sort of work around, since the alias is spelled similarly to the product name.

I have read about some kind of patched product PHP file that supposedly fixes this, but the post it linked to has been deleted by an admin.

Please can someone help? Is the sort by issue a known problem with Virtuemart?

Is there a fix / work around for this ?

Many Thanks

Vinny

Works fine for me with VM default template, can set ascending or descending - are you using overrides?  Is configuration/Product Order Settings correctly set in backend?

Thank you, as far as I can tell, the order in the backend is set correctly.

Please see the attached screenshot.

Hi Jörgen,

You are correct, I posted the wrong screenshot to show you :-(

Here is the screenshot, showing the backend, hopefully I've configured it the right way, but the products are still showing in the same wrong order no matter the setting.

Thank you for all of your help in looking at this.

Thanks

Vinny
