    Hello,
    Ive tried changing the date on the product and changing the order number, but neither seems to make any difference as to where the product appears in the main shop view.

    How can I make a product appear at the beginning or near the end of the shop?
    Thanks,
    Charlie

    When you are editing the product, look for "order" under attributed box on the right side. It will have a default value of "0".
    You can set the order of your products by assigning nos in ascending order. The product with value 0 comes first, the one with value 1 comes next and so on...hope this helps.

    I have tried this, however my products don't show up based on that ordering.

    I am using WooTheme Inspire.

    yep that doesn't work for me either...I had tried that before nmy initial post

    the only thing that works is changing the dates the item is added, which is pretty laborious

    If you go into WooCommerce Admin >> Settings >> Catalog >>
    When you put the "Default Product Sorting" to default, they will show up in the ranking that you set for each product.

    Hope this helps.

    Is there any way I can make the order as random. On every refresh of the store page, the order gets changed?

    bardwell03 - WooCommerce/Settings/Catalog, it's the first thing you come to at the top of the page.

    Forest Skills:
    I am still not seeing the random option in WooCommerce/Settings/Catalog drop down selection item.

    sarthaksinghal: There is not a 'random' option.

    Some options may have moved from version to version; here's the latest:

    WooCommerce Version 1.6.6

    In the dashboard, go to: WooCommerce >> Settings >> Catalog
    There is an option for 'Default Product Sorting' where you can choose 'Default sorting' from the drop down.
    Then, when you are editing a product, look for:
    Product Data >> Advanced >> Menu order.
    The product with value 0 comes first, the one with value 1 comes next and so on.

    Shoot, on WooCommerce 2.0 the menu order sorting is not working for me. Any thoughts on how to resolve? It's driving me crazy ...

    This is ridiculous. Surly someone out there knows how to change the order of a bloody product? Of asked woocommerce direct on twitter and they dont even get back to you. Thinking of moving my website elsewhere. Ridiculous

    None of these instructions work for me either. I'm struggling to accept that something so basic and fundamental is so difficult. I'm a brand new wordpress user and an terrified of embarking on the 'how to add a page' if how to organise products is so challenging.

    1/ Click sort products: http://cl.ly/image/2H1o30100r2K
    2/ Drag and drop to reorder products to your hearts content
    3/ In catalog options ensure its set to default as default http://cl.ly/image/160G3Y2y1H3r

    @mikejolley
    Appreciate the new options added. I was really looking at a "Random" option where all the products are auto juggled on every page load. It will lead to a different user experience for each user on the website.

    Hope it is considered for the next update.

    You could perhaps adapt http://docs.woothemes.com/document/custom-sorting-options-ascdesc/

    Random would need:

    $args['orderby'] = 'rand';
    				$args['order'] = 'asc';
    				$args['meta_key'] = '';

    I did find a workaround...you guys brought me good luck. The above is true about numbering your products, HOWEVER you have to be in SORT MODE in order for it to take. You can't just do a quick edit when viewing all products.

    It's a pain in the a$$ but as a last resort, choose to sort products and then number accordingly...if I can find an easier way, I'll post. Please do the same...

    I have a similar problem. I'm trying to bring up the items on sale at the very front of the catalog and the out of stock at the very end, and the rest in between.I'm stumped here... :(

    Hi there,

    I have managed to re order the products in the shop page, but I have a sub page and the default for that page is to order the products in alphabetically order. How do I customise the order in my sub page!!

    ellie4905 & Sufu5a: see the Plugins Author's (mikejolley) post above. He makes it clear the way to do this from within Woocommerce and without additional plugins.

    Mike, perhaps you guys can find a way to make this more obvious for users.
    Thanks for an awesome plugin in Woocommerce.

    I used Post Types Order plugin and it worked.

    The built in 'sort products' is not working correctly for me.
    I can drag n drop products to re-arrange, and they move around within my shop but do not reflect the order I move them to!

    Cat options is set as instructed.

    The problem I discovered is that when you have the "Posts Sort Order" plugin installed and activated the drag-and-drop resorting of products is honored on the front end, but if you change the default sort order from the drop-down menu to something else (i.e., "Sort by price: Low to High"), the page does not update. Only when you deactivate the plugin does the front end sort function work.

    Has anyone reported this to Woocommerce because I think that the drag and drop sorting operation is the issue. One shouldn't have to install another plugin for this to work, and clearly adding another plugin to "fix" this is breaking other functionality.

    Well that is a pain!!!!

    the sorting is not working as expected!

    on page load, default is not like what I ordered in the backend... if I change the view in front end THEN back to default... I get the correct order.

    Please advise

    I end up using Advanced Post Types Order which works great for me, it allow custom sorting while keep the other front side dropdown sort options functional.. I can sort even the Grouped products.

    After you sort, make sure you also click on the "Apply" button top left. This will sort products in "Shop".
