I understand the mechanism of sorting of custom fields is not provided at all? Or for now?

Ordering is in the db, but maybe it works not as expected.

Hi Milbo,

In v1.9.8.RC2G the user interface does not have the ability to order the Custom Fields.  I see the column is in the database table to hold the row order, but the user interface does not have anything that I can see.  What am I missing?   

Thanks,
Chuck

Hi Milbo,

I'm glad I was not going crazy! ;)  I was looking and looking for it! 

As far as where to put it in the user interface, it should be in both the Custom Fields interface so we can set the default order for the Custom Fields, but then when we add the Custom Fields to products, we should be able to change the order of Custom Fields for that product if we desire. 

Cheers,
Chuck

Hi all, I'm looking for this feature as well..

As a work around I did try to enter then fields in the order that I wanted, but it readjusted on save and this new "automagical" ordering put child items before the parent items and messed up the display...  I'll have to take a peek in the database and make the manual changes, but having an ordering adjustment is a must have for the fields.

I was hoping this feature would be in version H, but no such luck.   Can the developers give us an estimate as to when this feature will be included?

Thanks,
Chuck

HI all,
You can now order the product custom fields by simply drag-in it in the edit product form
