I have a product collection. How does one go about sorting this collection the Magento Way?

1 Answer 1


easymoden00b,Magento have a magic function addAttributeToSort() which is sort your product Collection on basic of product attribute


$ProductCollectionObject->addAttributeToSort('attribute_code', 'sort_order')


$collection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection');
$collection->addAttributeToSort('created_at', 'desc');

Here i have filter the product collection by created_at attribute

  • this works -- although curiously it is only sorting the first 20 products of my catalog when I increase the amount displayed on the page (40, 60, etc). Jan 28, 2015 at 15:19
  • it also work for all limit of products .it may be cache issue
