Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Sort Newest Products First?
By default, Improved Sorting will use the ‘Product Creation Date’ to determine which products are new. If this doesn't meet your needs, there is a field that comes from Counterpoint for New Until Date (news_to_date), or on the NRO side you can control the New From Date (news_from_date). You can specify any attribute to use for sorting newest products first, typically New Until Date, or New From Date.
For example, to use the New Until Date field that comes from Counterpoint:
- In Counterpoint, under Inventory / Items on the Ecommerce tab, enter valid New Until dates then publish the data to NRO.
- In NRO, select System / Configuration / Catalog / Catalog > Frontend and enter New for Product Listing Sort By, if you wish to sort by newest products by default.
- In NRO, select Catalog / Attributes / Manage Attributes, and then select the news_from_date attribute and make sure that Used in Product Listing is set to Yes.
- In NRO, select System / Configuration / Amasty / Improved Sorting, and enter news_from_date for the Attribute Code for the Newest Sorting field.
