Currently running 188.8.131.52 for a client, I was needing to change the default sort order on the product list to “Position” instead of “Name”. Heading into the configuration on the backend, there were only three options, none of which were “Position”. There was “Name”, “Price”, and “Best Value”.
To hopefully save some headaches of a few of you out there, turns out that “Best Value” actually is the value for “Position”. Not sure why, as it doesn’t really seem to make sense, but that’s all you have to do!
And, if you don’t know, the “Position” is set by editing a category, going to the “Category Products” tab, and putting in numeric values in the “Position” column for each product. This allows you to order the products any way you want for any category.
