Hi There

Is there a way we can assign the items to lead in each category? I.E. - I want our best product to come up 1st in its category vs how they are populating now.

Help? Hints? Heroes?

Change the field that controls the order of your products and enter lower numbers for the products you want to come first.

For example we use pother2 (or 3 can't quite remember exactly). Then we have certain ranges come first.

Remember to change xsortproducts (through your Admin panel) to the name of the field you've chosen eg. pother2

A slight variation to Steve's.

If you have a lot of products in a category and only care about maybe the first 3, then in addition to setting XSORTPRODUCTS to whatever field, also add DESC after that field name. Then you need only enter something like 900, 800, and 700 in those important 3 products. The rest you can leave blank.

If you leave it to the default of ASC, then blanks or NULL comes before any number you enter. That would then make you have to number all the products. Granted, you could do a bulk update to all of them to make the unimportant ones all the same number, 1000.

Just something to chew over.
