I want to let the admin of a Magento site I'm developing to sort the products in a category arbitrary, this is that Magento shouldn't order them by price, name or anything else. Ideally, the admin would see a list of products and drag n' drop products to sort them.

The best approach I could think of is to create a custom numeric attribute and then sort by that attribute on the template file, but that would be pretty annoying for the user. Any other ideas?

You can do this with the position attribute in the category admin. Check the attached image.position

  • Nice! Do you know of an extension that would simplify the work for my client with sth like Drag n' Drop?

  • I have never seen something like that, but it might exist. With a quick search i found this, but its a paid extension (i didnt made it): magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/…
