Sorting problem


Recommended Posts



Since the products were sorted acc. to ABC and not as we wanted, we decided to use the field URL to make the sorting there. I deleted the URL Line from the Frontend and in the backend there are Nr. 1, 2, 3, ... Now the shop sorts nicely acc. to these URL numbers, but when there is more than 1 page there comes a problem. When clicking on the page nr. 2 (up right) is starts sorting again acc. to ABC and on the second page again books from the first page appear.


I would like to remove this sorting in the "split_page_results.php". Somehow or other I can not find the sorting there?


I hope you know what I mean.


Thank you for the help

The split page class does not build the query - it just chops it up and applies LIMITs to the rows returned. You need to find the section of code that builds the query that is used to display the products.

Ususally called something like "products_query_raw"

How did you want them to be sorted?

Would have probably been easier to just go into index.php and change

$listing_sql .= " order by pd.products_name"; to whatever it is you wanted them to be grouped by ie: price, manufacturer

thanks for help. I wanted the products to be sorted according to the URL... I changed it in index.php - it works for the first page, but if there are more than 20 products on the second page the sorting is back on name...


If there is a contribution, I will check it out.


Thanks again

I have this function in index.php file:


if ( (!isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['sort'])) || (!ereg('[1-8][ad]', $HTTP_GET_VARS['sort'])) || (substr($HTTP_GET_VARS['sort'], 0, 1) > sizeof($column_list)) ) {

for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($column_list); $i<$n; $i++) {

if ($column_list[$i] == 'PRODUCT_LIST_NAME') {

$HTTP_GET_VARS['sort'] = $i+1 . 'a';

$listing_sql .= " order by pd.products_url";





The function sorts great, but if there are more product pages it starts sorting according ABC...:


If I click on Result Pages it seems to have some kind of sorting inside: index.php?cPath=58_59&sort=2a&page=2


Where can I find this sort function?
