Hello everybody,

I wonder can anyone help me with a hack where I could make one particular category to use default sorting by PRODUCT DATE ADDED instead of default ordering. This only needs to happen for one category. I don't mind any hard-coding. I don't care about the means I just want a result.

Can anybody help me please :)

Open catalog/model/catalog/product.php and add a check for category ID to getProducts() function.

This is how sites turn to junk and then you have to pay more for a decent developer to fix them in future.

I said I don't mind hard coding because I don't want to overbear anyone who can help me. I'd make a ocmod for the code myself :)

in your category controller this code sets the sort field and order if given, otherwise it sets the defaults.

Code: Select all

		if (isset($this->request->get['sort'])) {
			$sort = $this->request->get['sort'];
		} else {
			$sort = 'p.sort_order';
		}

		if (isset($this->request->get['order'])) {
			$order = $this->request->get['order'];
		} else {
			$order = 'ASC';
		}

You can check for any given category id (12 in example) and set the default to your liking:

Code: Select all

		$parts = explode('_', (string)$this->request->get['path']);
		$category_id = (int)array_pop($parts);
			
		if (isset($this->request->get['sort'])) {
			$sort = $this->request->get['sort'];
		} elseif ($category_id == 12) {
			$sort = 'p.date_added';
		} else {
			$sort = 'p.sort_order';
		}

		if (isset($this->request->get['order'])) {
			$order = $this->request->get['order'];
		} elseif ($category_id == 12) {
			$order = 'ASC';
		} else {
			$order = 'ASC';
		}

I changed the presentation of my standard general department with to product modification date with an XML, every time I change the date in the product registration it becomes the first in the category.
