Strictly for cosmetic purposes, we’d like to organize our products so that they display in a certain order when visiting a particular category. How can we specify the order of the products when displayed? Are they displayed based on the (unmodifiable) Item ID number?

The product order is stored per category. Go to category edit, 2nd tab - Products. There for all enabled products you can specify position for each product.

Thank you very much. That makes a lot of since. This is a fantastic product, once you get it installed okay.

Good day.

I’m having issues with sorting my product. I’m going into Manage Category>Category Products>then organizing the positions to how I want them to be on the front end. It worked for me, but now it’s resorted back to the original line up. I figured something might have not been saved or erased, but it wasn’t. My position order is just as I want it, but it doesn’t appear that way on the front end.

Can anyone help me figure this out?

Try “System” “Cache management” and then click the “Rebuild” button for “Rebuild catalog index”

Try to clear the browser’s cache.  Magento stores last sorting option in the cookies. It’s often raise a question when we support our Improved Sorting extension.
