I use Magento 1.7. The sorting by position dont work in both directions. The url-parameter switch from asc to desc but nothing change in the sorting.

Where could be the problem an in which are the files where Magento sort by position?

As mentioned by roman204 you would need to make sure that the position has been assigned for the product in this category. You can do this via Catalog > Categories:

Magento sort by position

  • Doesn't sound like this is his problem if switching from asc to desc does nothing....

  • I tried with no positions and without them changing the sort order does nothing like the OP mentioned. Feb 13 '15 at 12:50
  • Wow, strange. Seems like there's be at least some sorting at play regardless. I'll vote this answer up.
