    Default How to sort product listings within a category

    Hi,

    Here is a category list on my site:
    https://002mc.justmedical.biz/index....index&cPath=70

    I want the products on that page listed by price, high to low.

    I used the Developers Tool Kit Search in Configuration Settings/Keys to locate what I thought was probably going to work:
    Layout Settings > Categories/Products Display Sort Order
    5= Products Price+, Products Name

    When that didn't work, I set every other possibility the same....
    All Listing > Display Product Display - Default Sort Order
    4= Price high to low, Products Name

    Featured Listing > Display Product Display - Default Sort Order
    4= Price high to low, Products Name

    New Listing > Display Product Display - Default Sort Order
    4= Price high to low, Products Name

    Still, no dice!

    I seem to recall doing this last time by putting in a number/letter combo somewhere... like 4a or something. Cannot flipping remember where/how to do that.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    btw, all products have sort value of "0".

    FOUND IT!!!!

    Admin > Cofiguration > Product Listing > Display Product Listing Default Sort Order

    Once there, you have to reference the settings above. In my case, I assigned Price (Display Product Price/Add to Cart) as 4. Another thing you have to know is that a=ascending and d=descending.

    So I put in: 4d

    Worked!

    +++++

    I will now go permanently add a note to this menu item so I will be able to find these settings again.

    Admin > Cofiguration > Product Listing
    Admin > Cofiguration > Product Listing (Category Lists)

    Why bother? Because I'm tired of guessing which listing I'm looking for:
    Admin > Cofiguration > Product Listing
    Admin > Cofiguration > All Listing
    Admin > Cofiguration > Index Listing

    Here is how I will change that (see the first section: Menu Clutter):
