Support » Plugin: Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order » Woocommerce product category sort

  • I’m having this same issue. The woocommerce product categories are ordered on the backend but the changes aren’t reflected on the frontend. I’ve manually ordered on the backend but categories are still sorted alphabetically on the frontend.

    i have the same issue, anyone know why this is happening? does anyone have another way to do it manually?

    Same problem here, can’t get sorting to work with WooCommerce.

    There is some confusing behavior here, however it does appear to work (at least on my install).

    The issue is that there are two interfaces for changing order:

    Products –> Categories (gives you small drag/drop handles to right of each term row)
    Products –> Taxonomy Order –> Product categories (Categories)

    Changing the FIRST will change output on the front end. Changing the SECOND will change output on the backend (the order of category options on a product edit page).

    Custom Product Taxonomies
    Even more confusing is that if you’re using a custom taxonomy that’s assigned to WooCommerce Products (‘Age’, for example), there is no drag/drop functionality on that taxonomy’s terms list page. There remains a single:

    Products –> Taxonomy Order –> (‘Age’)

    …option for changing order, but making changes here changes BOTH the front end and the backend in my testing. This can be confusing for your end-user. I’m guessing this is mostly a plugin UI inconsistency issue that they haven’t yet sorted out.

    EDIT: Actually, this may be a bug. The two lists:

    Products –> Categories (drag/drop)
    Products –> Taxonomy Order –> Product categories (Categories)

    …are tethered together, but only in one direction. Changes to SECOND will be reflected in the FIRST, but not the other way around. This may be an issue with the drag/drop functionality. In order to see changes on the front end, the drag/drop items must be dragged/dropped again, even if it’s away from and then back to the desired position. However, those changes don’t persist in the UI: refreshing the drag/drop page returns the items to the order reflected in Product –> Taxonomy Order –> Product categories (Categories).
