    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 ...

    Ten to one, you do not ever use the Single Column setting so ignore it ...

    Try using:
    Box Name: shopping_cart.php
    Left/Right Column Status: ON
    Location: (Single Column ignores this setting) LEFT
    Left/Right Column Sort Order: 5
    Single Column Sort Order: 30
    Single Column Status: ON

    That worked just fine!

    I'm wondering why the shopping cart box looks so different between the two columns?

    Since there is nothing in the right column, I might as well get rid of it, right?

    Thanks a lot,

    Ed

    It is up to you if you use the right column ... it is all based on the sidebox that you have enabled and which column you want them turned on to display ...

    I understand the concept but if I use your advice and just change the location from left to right it looks as it was before, no box, cramped in the upper right corner of the right column. That's what I don't get.
