Hello,

How to Sort Products in Category by Date Available?

tried to modify category.php to:

Code: Select all

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

         if (isset($this->request->get['order'])) {
            $order = $this->request->get['order'];
         } else {
            $order = 'DESC';
         }
but it didn't work for me, what to do?

Using OC 1.5.1.3

It should do

date_available is a column in the product table so it should be passed to the SQL in the model file

I don't think this method works, it's randomizing the product i don't know based on what, cleared the cache although, i think the db query is missing that will call the date.
Can you look at the code please? :)

the value is actually "date_added" not "date_available". Also, I assume you'd like the newly added stuff to be on top. So we need to change the sort order. The code looks like this:

Code: Select all

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

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

oh, if you DO want date available, you can add it in the model file mentioned above:

Code: Select all

                        $sort_data = array(
                                'pd.name',
                                'p.model',
                                'p.quantity',
                                'p.price',
                                'rating',
                                'p.sort_order',
                                'p.date_added',
                                'p.date_available'
                        );

He means the model file which creates the model for the template.

                        ); 

There's no sort of product_id??
i'm trying to search the forum, but didn't find any

try p.date_added, but since i imported from another ecommerce engine, all products has same date/time..
so i need the sort by product_id..

anyone can help with this simple things? :)
thanks
