Do not use negative numbers for Product positions in a Category. One of index tables has unsigned column for this value. After re-indexing Category Products index, the sorting will be wrong.

This thread has been the biggest help of all for me. My products wouldn’t sort no matter what I did. I tried altering the code and followed the steps of dozens of sites (which all said the same things). After everything I found the trick was to go to Admin -> Catalog -> Category -> Display Settings and change Is Anchor to No. After I made that change, the sort orders that I had set on the Category Products tab instantly worked, whereas before they never made any kind of change. I don’t know what the Anchor is and this seems like I’m just working with a glitch rather than working the right way, but it worked. Thank you for everything that’s been said here, it’s been my best inspiration yet!

I faced the same problem and followed those steps but i didn’t get the sorted position output..I am using magento 1.7.0.2

1) Go to the admin/category and select the ‘Display Settings’
2) For ‘Available Product Listing Sort by’ deselect the checkbox for ‘use config settings’ and select sort by ‘Best Value’
3) For ‘Default Product Listing Sort by’ deselect the checkbox for ‘use config settings’ and select ‘Best Value’ from the drop down
4) Go to ‘Category Products’ and set the values for ‘Position’ and save.
5) Go to the cache and choose Layered Navigation Indice’ ‘Refresh Now’

And made changes Admin -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Catalog -> Front End -> Product Listing Sort by

to ‘Best Value’

I’m having an issue that may be related to this.

Even though all points in setup are set to Best Value (which I know is position)

that sort option doesn’t show up in the catalog view at all, nor does it sort by that option even if I adjust the url to explicity say ?dir=ascℴ=position

Recently, I faced same issue for custom attribute sorting on frontend. I wanted to show custom attribute first on front-end drop-down list. After doing couple of hours research
I found that, order for sorting is total based on the configuration setting. Changes to configuration setting worked for me. Below is the steps to follow,

1) Go to Admiin-Configuration->catalog->Frontend->Product Listing Sort by.
2) Set the ‘Product Listing Sort by’ as per your requirement.
2) Follow the same for all ‘Configuration Scope’ available. (Left corner, Current Configuration Scope)
3) Refresh the cache.
4) Done.

This will work for sorting.
