  • Ability to Sort Products by Entry Date (Newest First) on a Category Level

    Currently the only way to sort the product display by newest first on some categories and by manual sort order on other categories is to create and assign different ALT-CTGY pages. It would be great if "Entry Date" could be added to the Sort Products options, so that specific categories' product display could be sorted by Newest > Oldest while others could be sorted by a manually assigned order.

    I brought the issue once to old man Weiland. I wanted to date and time stamp when a product was entered and modified for several good reasons. One of them is that product feeds feeds, improved product page search engine indexing, probably less bandwidth used by search engine spiders, Change Management, etc... The old man came up with a neat solution using MIVA's custom product fields and Tool Kit "lastupdate". Once that is implemented, you should be able to accomplish what you want to as well. Refer to Tool Kit document Admin > Home > Utility Settings > Emporium Plus Tool Kits > 102 "lastupdate" (resourceful old man).

      • Now that Product Creation and Product Update timestamps are available in 9.7, I'm curious if product sorting by date created/updated could happen natively on the category level?
