    Default Category sort?

    Hi,

    Is there any way to individually sort categories? I found the sort options in the admin section but none of them fits my needs. Could the ID # be used?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    Each Listing has its own Sort Order setting ...

    The Product Info also has its own setting for the Prev/Next ...

    Doesn't the Products Sort Order work for you on these?

    The available sort category suggestions in the admin section don't let me sort the categories in my particular order.

    If you edit a Category there is a Sort Order ...

    Did you enter the values for Sorting the Categories display?

    The Products also have a Sort Order ... if you edit the Products you can add a Sort Order to them for how they should display within the Categories ...

    I am not getting what part of the Sort Order isn't working ... have you perhaps an URL and explanation to what the problem is?

    Here's the URL: www.veritechinc.com/Cart.

    I want to sort the categories in the left column individually but I don't know how.

    If you mean you want to sort these Categories:
    CEDAS Documentation
    CEDAS Individual Components
    CEDAS Upgrades
    CEDAS/CEM Hardware Locks
    CEM Custom Packages
    CEM Upgrades
    EDU Pricing
    SMS Complete Packages
    SMS Custom Packages
    SMS Hardware Lock Options
    SMS Individual Components
    SMS License Upgrades

    in some other order rather than Alphabetical ... go EDIT each Category and enter a Sort Order for them ...

    Example, go to your Zen Cart Admin and edit the Category:
    CEDAS Individual Components

    and change the Sort Order to 2000 ... depending on values you might or might not already have on your Categories it should move to the bottom of the list of Category names ...

    EDITING a category IS the problem!

    I see the list of categories, I click on the one I want to edit and, for the life of me, I can't find HOW to edit this particular category!

    I know I'm dense at times and that may very well be the reason. :-)

    When you see the Category Name ... click on the Big Green E on the same row as the Category Name that you want to edit ...

    Oh man, am I stupid! I knew it was something in the dense dept.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Now if you could tell me how to move the shopping cart notice in the right column into a box like the category box on the left, you'd make my day. :-)
