Re: Magento 1.9 - How to set PLP Page Sort By Ascending order in back-end?

Hi @Aveeva 

Try the below solution once. There is no need to more customization. In theme's local.xml file.

https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/10306

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
    <!-- Change default direction for simple searches -->
    <catalogsearch_result_index>
        <reference name="search_result_list">
            <action method="setDefaultDirection"><dir>asc</dir></action>
        </reference>
    </catalogsearch_result_index>

    <!-- Change default direction for advanced searches -->
    <catalogsearch_advanced_result>
        <reference name="search_result_list">
            <action method="setDefaultDirection"><dir>asc</dir></action>
        </reference>
    </catalogsearch_advanced_result>

    <!-- Change default direction for a category without layered navigation -->
    <catalog_category_default>
        <reference name="product_list">
            <action method="setDefaultDirection"><dir>asc</dir></action>
        </reference>
    </catalog_category_default>

    <!-- Change default direction for a category with layered navigation -->
    <catalog_category_layered>
        <reference name="product_list">
            <action method="setDefaultDirection"><dir>asc</dir></action>
        </reference>
    </catalog_category_layered>

 </layout>

Re: Magento 1.9 - How to set PLP Page Sort By Ascending order in back-end?

Hi @Aveeva 

There is not any by-default configuration in magento admin for set ASC or DESC by default.

You can change in the following file

For your requirement you need to change the code into this file:

Magento Root -> App -> Design -> Frontend -> [YOUR THEME] ->template-> Catalog -> Product -> List -> Toolbar.phtml

Or you can follow below solution.

Re: Magento 1.9 - How to set PLP Page Sort By Ascending order in back-end?

@Vimal Kumar  For my clarity, should add given code to app/etc/local.xml file, right?

Re: Magento 1.9 - How to set PLP Page Sort By Ascending order in back-end?

Hi @Aveeva 

No, in the app/etc/local.xml file.

This should be added into your current theme local.xml file.

app/design/frontend/<your_package>/<your_theme>/layout/local.xml

Re: Magento 1.9 - How to set PLP Page Sort By Ascending order in back-end?

@Vimal Kumar  After adding following code,

 

<!-- Change default direction for a category with layered navigation -->
    <catalog_category_layered>
        <reference name="product_list">
            <action method="setDefaultDirection"><dir>asc</dir></action>
        </reference>
    </catalog_category_layered>

It's working.

 

What is mean Change default direction for a category without layered navigation?
