Hi,

I have tried this but it doesn't solve my problem I am using version 1.1.4 and I am unable to sort the products. I can sort them in the backend but they don't change position in the front display page.

Can anyone help here.

Mike

Hello Mike,
I've struggled like you with VM but since I rarely got any help in this forum I've abandoned VM and switched to redSHOP. I'm very pleased so far. You get immediate help in the forum there if you are a subscriber which involves paying for membership but it's worth it a million times.

I wish you the best of luck :-)

I had this issue too but this is how I reordered my products in a category without messing with the code:

Click Site in VirtueMart. Where is says "Default product sort order" select Default. Save.

Now click Products / Lists Products

Under Filter select the category where you want to reorder your products.

When your list appears click the little AZ icon to the right or the Reorder Column.

Now each product will be assigned an order number and that is the order that they will appear in at the front end because we have selected Default Order under Site.

If you want to change the order of the product is shown at the front end, simply use the arrow keys in the Reorder Column to move the product up or down.

I hope this is the answer you were looking for as I had the same issue but I don't like to mess with the code if I can get away with it.

Cheers,
Neil.

thanks you very much thomas2411

When I change the order of a product that appears in two categories
The order of the products takes place in both categories.

There is a way to solve this?

I have this same issue, the reordering by up/down arrows affect the ordering in all categories. I can usually get around it by avoiding the arrows and instead typing numbers in the boxes, but that's really annoying to have to type in 1-50 for each category. I just posted a new thread about this, hopefully somebody knows of a solution: http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=92099.msg302802
