    Default Attribute Sort Order not responding

    I set up attributes for size (XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL) and gave each a sort order number so that it would go in size order, not alphabetical order. In the attributes option manager they take to the sort order, but on my site (in the drop down menu) they are still displayed in alphabetical order.

    Any thoughts?

    Check the Sort Order on the Attributes themselves that they are in order ...

    Also check the setting in the Configuration ... Product Info ...
    Products Info - Product Option Value of Attributes Sort Order
    Sort order of Product Option Values of Attributes for Products Info
    0= Sort Order, Price
    1= Sort Order, Option Value Name
    that this is set on 1 ...

    Ok, so under Catalog-->Option Values Manager. This is what I have:

    Option Value: Default Order
    XXS 1
    XS 20
    S 30
    M 40
    L 50
    XL 60
    XXL 70

    And I checked that other possibility as well...It was set as it should be. Is there any other possibility why it isnt working?

    Question:
    Did you try ?
    Admin---->Catalog --->Option Value Sorter---->Update All Products' Attribute Sort Order

    Hope it helps

    Default Re: Attribute Sort Order not responding

    That is sort of where I was trying to push you when I suggested look at the Sort Order on the Attributes themselves and see if the default sort orders had been applied to them yet ...

    The Default Sort Order is there to make it easy to apply to the Product after you add all the Attributes in the Attirbutes Controller and hit the Update Sort Order ...

    Or, you can manually add them ...

    Or, you can use the Updater in the Store Manager:
    Update All Products' Attribute Sort Orders
    to match Option Value Default Sort Orders:
    Or, you can use the Option Value Sorter as suggested ...

    Default Re: Attribute Sort Order not responding

    Hello Ajeh:

    I followed all your suggestions, but the attributes are still sorted in alpha order. This is darn peculiar

    I'm using v1.3.8a on this site.

    the catalog > option name sort order is set to:
    size = 0
    color = 1
    availability = 2
    notice = 3

    Under store > product info
    Products Info - Products Option Name Sort Order = 1
    Products Info - Product Option Value of Attributes Sort Order = 1

    Under catalog > option value sorter, i clicked update next to Update All Products' Attribute Sort Orders
    to match Option Value Default Sort Orders:

    Still nothing. I even tried the store manager route.

    I'm stumped. Any ideas?

    Any help is much appreciated. thank you.

    yes i did. if you have a moment, i would love to figure this out. I can give you access.

    just email me, if you have a few seconds. Thank you.

    on an aside, is there a mod to create permission based users in the admin?
