The default mode orders things in the same order as what you would set using the "Shop Inventory" tool which is in the top menu of the SELL page. Some people have problems using the Shop Inventory sorter but I only seem to have problems if I set orders too quickly and the data base gets confused. Any models in individual shop sections are also displayed according to the main Shop Inventory order. Good luck.
Well, First of all I wasnøt aware of this. However I have now tried this. It doesn't work in my shop. I have tried to enter display order of the products and the default won't display this order.
That being said it doesn't make sense that all of my products EVEN the hidden to public products appears in this list or display orders. The hidden to public products will never appear in the public shop and therefore it is unnecessary to have this bunch of products displayed in this list. In my case I have 5-6 hidden products for each product I have in the shop due to different ring sizes. When wanting to set this display order, which doesn't seem to work anyway, I would have to browse 8 pages of products instead of a single page. Especially if you add a new product and want the display order to be the same except you want the new item to be on top of this (first). Then I would have to go all over again and remember this order from the first time and just add a new one on top.
This need to be changed so 1) it only applies to public for sale products or 2) at least so you have the option to choose the public for sale items isolated 3) preferable so you can drag and drop the order (like photos in a Facebook album).
