I am wondering if there is a way to make certain items appear first within a category, regardless of default item order?

I would like particular items, buried within several pages because item order defaults to alphabetical, to appear first. Is this possible?

    Could you please post your code snippet that you're using for displaying the products? I have some ideas, but it'd be easier to answer if I could see what you're working with. – Jeremy Gimbel Jan 26 '14 at 16:05

You could use the in-built 'sticky' option for an entry. All your sticky entries will appear first, regardless of your other orderby parameter values.

More information on the EE docs: http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/cp/content/publish.html#make-entry-sticky

  • Thanks! This worked. Its not a long term solution, as it isn't a sequential site wide. but it moved a product that was buried 15 pages deep to the number one position within its category. So thats great! I can now "feature" or promote a dozen or so items per category. – jess Mar 24 '14 at 20:50
