Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Product order within a category + “Quick Edit” not working

  • Resolved VisedFAQ

    (@visedfaq)


    Hi guys,

    I’d like to know how I can change the order of the products that appear within a specific category.

    We have a big parent category called “Nomination” and a list of subcategories inside it:
    https://ibb.co/4NDscGH

    By default, the sorting was alphabetical. The client told us that the products inside “Links” subcategory should appear first when opening parent category “Nomination” on front-end. I moved “Links” category to the top, just under “Nomination” (you can see this on the screenshot above) – but on front-end that didn’t help and order is the same as it was. How can this issue be fixed?

    Also, there’s an issue with the “Quick Edit” button when viewing products on the back-end – it just doesn’t work when you click on it. Here’s the status of the console log on the page:

    Hi @visedfaq,

    It sounds like you could use some custom product ordering:

    Your other option is to build custom pages and use WooCommerce Blocks to add products individually in a specific order.

    There is likely a JavaScript conflict somewhere – I just tested this with WooCommerce 3.7 and it works properly. Try retesting with only WooCommerce enabled and a default theme(Storefront).

    Hi @shellbeezy ,

    Regarding the custom product ordering – we have like 2600 products inside the category “Links” so I need the solution to order subcategories within the category because it’s impossible for me to edit each product and change an order number in there.

    Hi @shellbeezy,

    Any news?

    Hey @visedfaq,

    The sorting you have done by dragging and dropping the ‘Links’ subcategory will only affect the sorting of the subcategories shown on that page – you appear to only be showing the products and not the subcategories.

    You’d either want to show subcategories there and let your users choose a category from Nominations or you would indeed need to use a custom sorting option.

    Hi @shellbeezy,

    Just found out that the issue with the “Quick Edit” button was due to your new plugin called WooCommerce Admin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-admin/

    I see that reviews are pretty bad and people also have other problems with it, so I hope your team spends some time on testing it properly.
