Default sort order?
« on: July 18, 2012, 02:04:35 PM »
Hello. I have just stated using AbanteCart and I have no problems what so ever!
However...I am just wondering if it is possible to change the default "sort order" from the "Model ID" so it is automatically "A-Z"

Thanks for any help :)

Assuming you refer to storefront, Keep in mind that by default sorting is based on the sort order set in the product field

Sorting set based on the SQL select and order clause set in it. Look into file with model public_html/storefront/model/catalog/product.php

Hope this help.

There are different functions that are called to get listing of products. This depends on the section that does listing.

Example:

public function getProductsByCategoryId($category_id, $sort = 'p.sort_order', $order = 'ASC', $start = 0, $limit = 20) {

There is a section that sets the sorting (order)

                $sort_data = array(
                        'pd.name',
                        'p.sort_order',
                        'p.price',
                        'special',
                        'rating'
                );

                if (in_array($sort, $sort_data)) {
                        if ($sort == 'pd.name') {
                                $sql .= " ORDER BY LCASE(" . $sort . ")";
                        } else {
                                $sql .= " ORDER BY " . $sort;
                        }
                } else {
                        $sql .= " ORDER BY p.sort_order";
                }

                if ($order == 'DESC') {
                        $sql .= " DESC";
                } else {
                        $sql .= " ASC";
                }


You need to let us know where exactly you need to change the sorting order. What page?

You can change the sorting pram to be defaulted to A-Z

Look in file:
storefront/controller/pages/product/category.php

Locate this code:
Quote
            $sorts[] = array(
               'text'  => $this->language->get('text_default'),
               'value' => 'p.sort_order-ASC',
               'href'  => $this->html->getSEOURL('product/category', $url . '&path=' . $this->request->get['path'] . '&sort=p.sort_order&order=ASC', '&encode')
            );

Switch it with next line.

Thats made it so it says the sorting is A-Z but it actually isnt. Its still default sorted by Model ID. Ive even removed "Default" from that drop-down and it still sorts it that way....

http://mylittlecrystalshop.com/ab/index.php?rt=product/category&path=4_25

see?

Edit: Seems its being ordered by when its uploaded  ???

In the same spot, can you please change
'href'  => $this->html->getSEOURL('product/category', $url . '&path=' . $this->request->get['path'] . '&sort=p.sort_order&order=ASC', '&encode')
TO:
'href'  => $this->html->getSEOURL('product/category', $url . '&path=' . $this->request->get['path'] . '&sort=pd.name&order=ASC', '&encode')

Correct link should be this to force sort by name like below:
http://mylittlecrystalshop.com/shop/index.php?rt=product/category&path=4_25&sort=pd.name-ASC

This should fix default sorting, if not, let us know.

Found out it wasnt that.
Had to change
Code: [Select]
if (isset($this->request->get['sort'])) {
list($sort,$order) = explode("-",$this->request->get['sort']);
} else {
$sort = 'p.sort_order';
}

to
Code: [Select]
if (isset($this->request->get['sort'])) {
list($sort,$order) = explode("-",$this->request->get['sort']);
} else {
$sort = 'pd.name';
}
in the same file.

Just so it helps you in the future :)
