disableParamsMemorizing is working fine with the category pages. But when someone uses the toolbar within the searchresults pages the params are cached.

I have seen i need to put Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List_Toolbar::disableParamsMemorizing somewhere but i cannot find it. I have placed <action method="disableParamsMemorizing" /> in my templates product toolbar. Why o why is this not working on search pages?

edit: local.xml:

<!-- Quick search -->
<reference name="search_result_list">
        <action method="setDefaultDirection"><param>desc</param></action>
        <action method="setSortBy"><param>news_from_date</param></action>
    <reference name="root">
        <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/2columns-left.phtml</template></action>
        <action method="setDefaultDirection"><param>desc</param></action>
        <action method="setSortBy"><param>news_from_date</param></action>

    <reference name="left">
        <!-- Keep layered navigation always on top. Replace: after="currency" with: before="-" -->
        <!--<action method="unsetChild"><name>catalogsearch.leftnav</name></action>
        <block type="catalogsearch/layer" name="catalogsearch.leftnav" before="-" template="catalog/layer/view.phtml"/>-->

        <!-- Remove currency switcher from sidebar -->
        <action method="unsetChild"><name>currency</name></action>


i have nothing in my xml for the toolbar.

  • Provide some XML from your layout file. Also take a look at this: magento.stackexchange.com/a/7364/146

  • edit done, i also read the post. I have put that code in my template/catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml and that is working great for category pages. The code also shows-up in/around the toolbar on the searchresult pages when i "inspect" the code, but it is still saving the sorting.

Try adding this inside the <catalogsearch_result_index> tag

<reference name="product_list_toolbar">
   <action method="disableParamsMemorizing" />
  • You are king! Big thanks, this is working perfect.
