Managing Sorting Attributes of Classification Catalogs

For product sorting, a default preference can be defined. This default can be overwritten at category-level by declaring a custom sorting attribute for the category. To manage product sorting attributes at category-level:

  1. Navigate to the category level at which you want to work.
    Select the intended management context from the context selection box, then select Catalogs | Catalogs. Then click the catalog and category names until you reach the intended category level.
  2. Click Edit in the row of the category you intend to edit.
  3. Click Edit in the row of the catalog or category you intend to edit.
    This displays the General tab of the catalog/category detail page with the Sorting section at the bottom.
  4. Select the Custom radio button to overwrite the general sorting preference.
  5. Select a standard sorting attribute or provide the name of a different attribute as custom sorting attribute.
    Select the option None in case you want to invalidate the general sorting preference for a catalog category, without defining an explicit sorting.
  6. Select the sorting order.
    Available options are: descending or ascending.
  7. Click Apply to start the assignment process.
Note: Sorting attributes declared at category level apply only to products at this particular level. They are not inherited by sub-categories.
