I created an attribute sorting order (attribute code : shortorder ) for arrange/sorting(ASC or DESC) the products by adding value to this attribute while adding the products.

In the list.phtml product collections are collect by


Is there any way to do this shorting in product view page?

You might have to override the Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List block, specifically, its function _getProductCollection() to implement the necessary filtering.

A proposed override for the function Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List::_getProductCollection:

protected function _getProductCollection()
    $collection = parent::_getProductCollection();
    $collection->addAttributeToSort('attribute code', 'asc');
    $this->_productCollection = $collection;

    return $this->_productCollection;
