Quick Tip: Move Products inside a Category in Prestashop 1.5

It seems that some people can’t find a way to order products in Prestashop Categories. Let’s see how to display movement arrows in the back office!

If you are a Prtestashop 1.4 user, now approaching to 1.5, you might have noticed those little arrows you used to move products are not there anymore, where they used to be. This is because products and categories now have 2 different interfaces in the back office. So, how to move products within a category? Well, there is a hidden catch: you must first filter the product list by category. In short terms, here is what you have to do:

1. In the admin panel, hover on Catalog, and click Products.

Click on the products link under Catalog

Click on the products link under Catalog

2. In this page, click “Filter by category”

Click this link to filter products by category

Click this link to filter products by category

3. Finally, select one category, and the product list will be filtered down to the ones belonging to the selected category. Not only, the movement arrows will also appear in the right side of the table.

Select a category, and use the arrows to move them inside it

    As DannyR says, the absolute time consuming process is when trying to rearrange more than 50 products. There is no solution anywhere in prestashop forum. I spend 2 days! to rearrange 900 products in very good order (fashion clothes). Nemops you would absoluterly great if you could assist in such field.

      well the only workaround that I could think about, out of my head, would be to add a new field to write the position number, or a csv upload with product id, category id and position. SOmething like that? WOuld it be quicker?

    This is a real pain in the ass if you have more than 50 products. Try to move the last one to the first place. It would take forever!

    You know the reason if you select a different sort, (eg ID ordered by more recent) the column ‘position’ disappears? is a bug ?
