I have a product page /new with a product list sorting by "position" by default. I don't like this sorting because the list never change...

Is there a mean to change this sort only to this page please?

  • Is it a category page you created yourself?

  • Dear Klettseb, thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately, it seems that it is not a category page I have created myself and I don't find where I could configure it for now.

You have two options, either you can do this in the backend if it is a random category page you created like this:

  1. Setting default Sort Order for category When you go to Category page in Magento administration (Catalog/Manage Categories), you’ll see “Display Settings” tab. From there you can modify “Available Product Listing Sort By” and “Default Product Listing Sort By” values.


  1. In your local.xml you can also change it there.

            <reference name="product_list">
                <action method="setDefaultDirection"><string>asc</string></action>
                <action method="setDefaultOrder"><string>price</string></action>
