Hi

We are trying to have our products appear in a certain order. Usually our clients just ask that the products appear as they are (in alphabetical order), however this client wishes us to put products in reverse "catalogid" order - therefore, the last product that was added to a category goes right to the top (rather than the bottom as it would normally when adding "catalogid" to the "xsortproducts" field).

To the "xsortproducts" field I entered"-catalogid" (with the minus sign in front of it) which when I viewed the category - it worked, however within 5 minutes the system stopped working, and when I clicked on any category to view it's products it would justs show an error.

What configuration would make the newest products go to the top?

Thank you

Try setting xsortproducts to:

catalogid desc

that should force it to show in descending catalogid order (ie latest first)
