View Full Version : Change default ad display order
July 25th, 2004, 05:33 PM
I may be overlooking this... Is there an easy way to change the default display order, from 'most viewed' to most recently posted? I'd like new ads to be at the top by default.

In admin options
Show recent products in default location (bottom)? (if no, will display at top)
Show Most Recent Additions on Index page?

Sorry - I wasn't clear. I'm looking at the ad listing pages. The default selection in the "Sort by..." drop down menu is "Most Views". I'd like to change this so that the default view selected is "Most Recent"....

Okay in a future version most likely category specific sort parameters will be possible like Photopost.
For now to do that edit showcat.php line 78
if ( empty($sort) ) $sortparam = 2;
change to this
if ( empty($sort) ) $sortparam = 1;

In Photopost cat editor you can specify the cat default sort order

I"m trying to change the combo box for sorting to sort the most recent first - and have it be the default. Not reorg the categories. Sorry for being vague :)

what do you mean combo box?
This thread talking about sort order is talking about the sort order when going to showcat or in your case showgallery.
However the edit categories specified sort order will override that box setting to what the cat sort order is

Sorry, I thought he was referring to the Sort By: combo box (drop down list).
In ShowGallery, there is a Sort By drop down list. I would like to have sort by latest on top and be the default option chosen when the user goes to the screen.

As I stated in Photopost Admin category editor you can specify a default sort for each cat

Chuck, I think we may have our lines crossed somewhere. I'm trying to change the sort order of this list so that latest comes up first and not most popular. The values to change in edit categories are to reorder my categories, not sort orders. Here is a screenshot. That is what I am trying to change.
Thanks for your help :)

Yes and since your talking Photopost I have told you how to do it

Yes and since your talking Photopost I have told you how to do itI am talking about photopost and we still have our lines crossed. Attached is a pic of what you have mentioned to change. That changes the presentation order of the photopost galleries in the index screen. It has nothing to do with changing the sort order of that combo box I took the screenshot above.
Does anyone know how to make the sort order default be the Most Recent instead of most active?
I've attached a screenshot once again of my edit categories screen. There is nothing there about the sort order for the "Sort By" combo box (drop down list) found in the ShowGallery.php file.
