    Can the sort order be a sticky setting and can you set it for a shop category. Even if it is global for your shop It would make is so much easier to specify a sort order that doesn't jump back to all items when you select it. If I am in a category and want to see the latest in that category if I select a sort order of newest it jumps out and shows all items. A cookie could handle this very easily.

    I searched and did not find anyone asking about his or questioning the current behavior.

    I agree. When you go to my Shop and select "Puzzle Rings", then the query is https://www.shapeways.com/shops/oskarpuzzles?section=Puzzle+Rings. If you then press "newst", the query is https://www.shapeways.com/shops/oskarpuzzles?sort=newest, whereas the visitor probably only wanted to see my newest puzzle rings, that is https://www.shapeways.com/shops/oskarpuzzles?section=Puzzle+Rings&sort=newest.

    So, yes, please make the shop category sticky, which would be the most intuitive anyway, as the visitor can always click "All Items".

    Having just finally organized my shop into more useful sections, I'd love to see this functionality in the search.

    (edit) This appears to work on mobile - I'm able to pick a section and sort within that section on my phone. Just need it on the desktop too.

    Giving this a bump because this is one of my biggest complaints/frustrations of navigating any shop on here.

    One more bump since the site-overhaul is now done - hopefully the CS team will see this and advise their developers.
