Magetno 2 - Sorting products In Categories Differently From Search Results

Hi All,

I would like to know if it is possible to sort products in categories (we are using the instant search results to replace default categories) differently than search results.

We want searches to be sorted by ranking factors such as views, price, sales and have configured under stores > config > algolia > product as such.

However categories, we would like to organise (think putting similar products together and preventing very popular accessories from outshining the main product).

Hopefully, this is achievable,

Many Thanks
James

Hi @startsafety,

The feature we offer for controlling order of products by category is the Visual Merchandiser:

Although it is not a full sorting of your index, it does allow you to select specific products and promote them by fixing their position on the category page.

I hope it may help you with your goal
