Hello Jon,

This is a nice an clean looking implementation of Drupal / Ubercart.
Good example of what is possible.

Show XX per page, View as Grid / Table, Sort By XX

Hello,

I particularly like the way a user can sort the products on this site. Something you see on nearly every e-commerce site. The ability to "Show XX per page", "View as Grid / Table", and "Sort By XX". I am trying to accomplish this on my own site, but it seems Ubercart does not do this by default. I tried playing around with Views and I can not seem to get it to work. I have been searching for a module, and could not seem to find one to do this either.

What does one need for modules and how does one make this work? I am sure other Ubercart users could benefit in knowing.

Thank you!

~ Tom

Yes, the sorting function on your webshop works great!

How did you accomplish this on the mirrorstonecrystals.com site?

Hi DWP,I have found that the

Hi DWP,I have found that the "uc_advanced_catalog" module is what makes this happen. Thanks to some help from Jon V,

I've enabled the same on my our Isabelle's Lighting Inc website. It works great, helping my lighting customers sort through the tens of thousands of light fixtures by their choice of items per page. I set it at "40" for default for slower browsers, but enabled users to increase the number to "200" items per page. The actual figures are whatever you set in place. And I also set it to search by price. The user can choose between descending price (high to low) or ascending price (low to high). Makes it nice for customers who want nice lighting, but have a certain budget they want to stay within.Maybe in the near future, I will post a "Tech Bite" for this on my other site.Take care,Tom
