How to enable manual collection sorting in our widget Print

Modified on: Wed, Aug 18, 2021 at 1:58 PM

There are times when you want some of your collections to have a certain order for merchandising purposes, but our Smart Navigation (Filters on collection) feature allows setting sorting for all collections at once. Here is when the Manual sorting option comes in handy.

How to set it up?

Assuming you've already prepared your collection and set up sorting that you like in the Shopify admin, proceed to the Searchanise control panel > Filters on collections section > Manual sorting tab.

Please note that this feature doesn't work with the sorting options other than Manually. The default sorting for the collections added to the Manual sorting list is named Featured.

Here click the + button, select collections with manual sorting and click Add collections and close

After it's done you'll need to re-index your store. You can click the link in the orange notification or you can click the Force re-indexation button in the Dashboard section. As soon as it is completed, you are ready to go. 

Other collections which are not added to the Manual sorting tab will have the sorting selected in the Default sorting dropdown in the Settings tab in the Filters on collections section.

How to remove it?

Select the tick-box right next to the unwanted collection and the Delete button will appear next to the + sign.

After you click the Delete button, the same message about re-indexation will appear. Re-index your store and the changes will be undone.
