    In my store, the products are displaying in an order I can’t seem to control.

    I tried putting this after the intro text on my Store page:

    [products ids=”348, 349, 366, 360, 361, 363, 325, 314, 286″]

    But the products are displayed in this different order, which seems to be alphabetical by the names of the products:
    366 – 361 – 363 – 349
    360 – 286 – 348 – 325
    314

    How can I get them to display in the order I want them to display?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Update:

    Today in a Support Chat with Mikey I was told that I could determine the order in which products will display in my shop catalog. But what he told me to do isn’t working.

    He said:
    Mikey: You can do this 02:22 PM
    Mikey: [products ids=”348, 349, 366, 360, 361, 363, 325, 314, 286″ orderby=”menu_order”] 02:22 PM
    Mikey: Then, in each product, go to Product Data > Advanced > menu order 02:22 PM
    Mikey: You will then need to set the Menu Order for each of those products. For example 348 will be 1, 349 will be 2, etc. 02:23 PM

    I have done this but they are not displaying in the order I want. I want the first 9 products that appear in the store to be: product IDs: 348, 355, 356, 349, 366, 360, 361, 363, 325

    After those first 10, I want the products to be displayed on separate pages for each category.

    How can I accomplish these results soon? We need to launch our store on Nov 22 US central time.

    Hi @nancygruver – you can go to Products > Sorting and there drag the products in the right order:

    Shortcodes can’t be used for displaying products on different pages. You could at the bottom of this page just add links to the product category pages.

    Hi @jobthomas – I’m working on a pc and when I try to do this I can’t get the + appearing as shows in your video. Are you first clicking on something off the top of the video above? I can’t see what that is. Thanks for your help!

    ignore my last comment – I’ve got it now!! Thank you so much!!!

    Sorting products can be done under Products > Categories and then dragging them in the order you want @poomik.

    Hi

    Yes sorting products i understand, but i want the categories in another order??

    @poomik can you have another look at my suggestion, because I’m not pointing to the place to sort products, but to sort categories.

    Here’s a short video of it:

    Thanks Job

    The problem was the firefox browser, i did not se the sorting row. But logging in on Chrome i got it! THANKS
