Split Product Listing into Sections

I sell many different types of cables on my site. For any given type of cable, there are several different lengths (6ft, 9ft, 12ft, etc), and also different types (standard, premium, etc). Right now, the premium cables and standard cables are listed together in one category, all mixed together. It's kind of messy.

 

I don't want to have a separate "standard" and "premium" sub-category for each type of cable.

 

What I would like is: When somebody clicks on a category, let's say "vga cables", they would get a listing that first showed a group of the different lengths of "standard" vga cables, then as they scroll down there would be another group of "premium" vga cables, and all those different lengths.

 

I've searched the contributions, but haven't found anything. Any advice?

I think You will find you answer by loging on to admin, create a catagory for cable, then a sub catagory of Standard then one for premium, then under products / attributes then click on the product you want to give an attribute, look to the left where it says products/ attributes. Next to Color choose edit and change color to what you want then do the folling for each, or delete any you don't need. Do the same for option value.

I'm not really sure what you're saying, but I don't think it's what I'm looking for.

 

Take a look at this page: http://www.riteav.com/index.php?cPath=47_80

 

Rather than have the Standard and Premium cables mixed together, I would like to have all the Standard cables listed first, then below that, a separate header labeled "Premium", with all the premium cables.

If you don't want to use subcategories then you are going to have to sort your results with if and while statements and probably create another field that you can indicate whether it is standard or premium in your products table.

 

Good Luck
