Default Adding a Sort Filter to your Category Pages.

To add a sorting filter like the following to your pages, here are the instructions.


  1. Go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > Product list module > Click template icon


  2. In the snippets section in the left sidebar, expand Tag List > Product Tags
  3. In the right column text area, place your cursor where you want the sorting filter to appear.


  4. Click the "Sorting Template" link from the left sidebar. This will insert the filter into the textarea.
  5. Click "Save changes"
  6. Go here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr
  7. Click the [Update Settings Only] button.

Hi

You should turn on Permalinks. That will give you MUCH better results in the search engine and fix the problem.

The "Default" setting means that your permalinks are OFF. You should choose one of the other option.

Your links shouldn't look like this: site.com/?page_id=73
They should look like this: site.com/about/

Hi

The .htaccess file is in the same directory as your wp-config.php file (which you had to modify in order to install wordpress).

I would be really surprised if your host did not allow you to modify the .htaccess that exists within the public space.

Tell them that the .htaccess file you want to modify is in the public space and ask them how to modify that.

If it's still impossible, you should seriously consider changing web host providers as you will be at a disadvantage in the search engines because your URLs are not search engine friendly.

Yes Eric You are right I am with these 1&1 and seriously they are not letting me change anything in the Directory and It appears just Read Only directory and the Guy on the fone clearly said "WE DO NOT LET PEOPLES MAKE CHANGES" Simple.
I am considering changing my Host Now and have to wait up to 7 Days

I think that will be best for you in the long run. If you can't make changes to files, you are going to be seriously limited to what you can do with your site.

Here are some inexpensive hosts that we have worked with in the past: http://www.datafeedr.com/web-hosts/

Please make sure you check the Allow override checkbox in the product list module settings

You can set up a brand filter. There are many threads addressing that:

EDIT: Forget what I said, didn't have 'Allow Overide' set. Thanks.

Hi,

Can you help? The sorting filter does not work on my category pages? Cheers.
