You can specify the default variable for displaying items within the grid and public view of the catalog. In addition, you can highlight specific items by specifying the display order on the items you want to display first.
To change the display order:
Go to: Admin > Site Settings > Catalog > Catalog Settings
If Display Order is chosen at the default sort order, items will appear in the order specified, and any items with an empty display order field will appear after those, in the order entered (most recent first).
To Highlight Items as exceptions to the default sort order:
Using Display Order to Highlight Items:
- You can designate a display number on some, none, or all items, but each display order must be entered manually.
- To place item(s) between existing numbers, reuse the closest number. If items have the same display number, they will appear together and their order will be determined by the default sort chosen (Category A-Z etc).
- To highlight a few items, specify the display order on those individual items, and select the desired default sort for the remaining items.
