How do you define product sort order of the parent category when the products are assigned to the subcategories?
Using the above example - when I visit the hardware page I can see all 65 products that populate the corresponding subcategories, but I do not see how to define the sort order of those products on the Hardware category page.
Using Enterprise 2.X
Thanks in advance for any insight!
Not sure exactly what is the issue, but I'll try to explain flow.
So, you can go into Magento Admin -> Products -> Categories, and there you can select the category you want to configure.
Select any of those categories, and expand "Display Settings" tab. Here you'll notice options where you can set what sort options exactly you want to show, and what will be default sorting option for a particular category.
Also, keep in mind that category "Display mode" must be set to "Products" or "Static Block and Products", in order to be able to apply product list toolbar. And "Anchor" must be set to "Yes", too.
