I have sorted my products in the Product area, but when I access the different categories, the products are not in the order that I have specified. Why is this, and how can I fix it?

In Miva Merchant, sorting the products in the Products section of the Miva Merchant administration interface will only rearrange the way that the products are displayed in the Product List and Search areas of the storefront. In order to provide e-Merchants with more control over the way that the Miva Merchant storefront looks, we have provided a separate area where you can sort products in each category: |
1. Log into your Miva Merchant administration interface.
2. Expand the "Stores" menu by clicking the blue triangle next to it.
3. Expand your store's menu by clicking the blue triangle next your store's name.
4. Expand the "Categories" menu by clicking the blue triangle next to it.
5. Click on the NAME of any of the categories that you would like to sort the products for.
6. In the page displayed, click the tab link "Products" and it will display a list of All categories in the store.
7. Toward the top of the screen, click the button labeled: "Assigned" and it will display a list of products assigned to that specific category.
8. Also, on the Assigned screen, sorting options are displayed:
o Arrows: Blue arrows pointing up and down, located next to each product name. This will allow you to sort the products individually, not following any specific order.
o Sort: These are sorting options, found toward the top of the screen, that will allow you to sort the products in the category based upon the following criteria:
Name Ascending - By Product Name, in order, A-Z.
Name Descending - By Product Name, in order, Z-A.
Code Ascending - By Product Code, in order, A-Z.
Code Descending - By Product Code, in order, Z-A.
Once you have sorted the products, access your Miva Merchant storefront. The products should be sorted within the categories based upon your actions inside the Miva Merchant administration interface.
For more information on setting up the Products section of the "Category" area of your Miva Merchant administration interface, please see the documentation located at:
See the Miva Merchant User Guides, specifically the guide labeled: "Set Up Categories".
