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.
