How to I make the latest product module show products in order from date added to catalog, not date created? I make a bunch of copy products that I can edit later as I get new products, but then they are not showing in order on the latest product page as they get released.

catalog\controller\module\latest.php

change line
from

Code: Select all

			'sort'  => 'p.date_added',
to

Code: Select all

			'sort'  => 'p.date_available',
Now you can handle position by changing 'Date available' field.

Thanks for the reply! Hmm, what other variables could I use there to control the order? I tried "available" ?

Seems that still does not match the sequence of my live store that's on 1.5.5.1 which I had a vqmod that took care of it:

opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=14525

Also, when I change to "available" it causes empty spaces. Not sure if it's because of the product title too long from the product above, or if it was a product I deleted.... but it makes the layout look horrible.

There is an OC Mod that changes the sort order to show items by the date added, so the most recent are displayed first
