New Feature: Collection Sorting

New Feature: Collection Sorting

Your Shopify collections can now be sorted!

All of your Custom Collections and Smart Collections can now be sorted in six different ways:
  • Alphabetically: A-Z
  • Alphabetically: Z-A
  • By Price: Lowest to Highest
  • By Price: Highest to Lowest
  • By Created Date: Newest to Oldest
  • Custom

Now you can easily choose how your collections are sorted and they will stay that way.

For example, let’s say that you sort a collection alphabetically, then you decide to change the titles of some of your products. When this happens, your collection will be automatically resorted in the background so that the customer experience is seamless.

From this point on, all new collections that are created will be sorted Alphabetically: A-Z.

There are no changes required on your part, so start sorting!

    Can we use this feature and add it to the front end of our themes?

    I’m with Krasen on this one… being able to sort like this on the front-end would be invaluable. It’s mind-boggling that Shopify doesn’t offer this out of the box.

    I agree with Krasen and Jessica, front-end sorting please! It is a serious negative that shopify doesn’t currently support it.

    I second front end sorting-I’ve just added all my products and have now found out the only way to enable this is to create multiple collections for each individual collection. Surely there must be a simpler way?!

    I need a way to create collections that sort from most recent updated (publish-date) rather than created-date.

    So far no amount of hacking the liquid scripts seems to be able to afford me this ability so it’s on the Shopify side to implement this. How do I make a formal request for this feature?
