Hi,

can someone help me fix the manual sorting of products from collections? It shows fine when I drag & drop in shopify, but when i check it on safari or chrome or other browers, it doesn't show the updated order of products. Can someone tell me what's the matter pls? Here is the link: https://beach2bar-malta.myshopify.com/admin/collections/158751260806

Thanks
Ilona

Hey, @ilz777!

Ash here from the Shopify team.

I'm happy to help look into this with you! It looks like you've added a link to your post which leads to a page in your admin. Since that page requires access to your account to view, I'm not able to see what you're referring to. To get a better idea of what's going on here, could you please send me a screenshot of your collection in the admin showing the order of products, as well as a screenshot of the same collection on the live site to show the discrepancy? 

I also have a few troubleshooting steps for you to take which may resolve this issue without any further digging. It's possible that when previewing your live site you're seeing cached information on your browser, causing it to appear that your product re-ordering is not going live. Here are some steps that may help clear this up: 

 

  • Check your browser for updates and complete any available
  • Clear your browsers cache and cookies
  • Preview your collection in an incognito/private browsing window
  • Try an alternate browser, and complete the above steps again

 

Hopefully those steps can resolve the issue, but if not, I'm happy to take a closer look! Please reply here and let me know how this goes for you.

Hey, @ilz777!

Thank you for following up with me. Just to confirm, did you complete all of the troubleshooting steps listed in my previous post, and then continue to experience the same issue afterwards? Also, could you please reply back here and send over the screenshots I mentioned in my original reply?

The screenshots I'd like to see are; one of your collection in the admin showing the order of products, as well as a screenshot of the same collection on the live site to show the discrepancy.

Once I have those screenshots, I should be able to get a better idea of what is going on here. Looking forward to hearing back and getting to the bottom of this!

Hey, @danielaUH and @paversengland!

Ash here from the Shopify team! Welcome to the Shopify Community and to the thread. 

I understand you're experiencing some issues with the re-ordering products on your manual collections. Firstly, I posted some troubleshooting steps above in this thread. Please complete those steps and try re-ordering your products again, and if the issue persists, you can reply here to let me know. For quick reference, here are the steps to try: 

  • Check your browser for updates and complete any available
  • Clear your browsers cache and cookies
  • Preview your collection in an incognito/private browsing window
  • Try an alternate browser, and complete the above steps again

If these steps don't resolve the issue, when you reply back here could you please include some screenshots showing the order of the products in your collection on the admin side vs the live site? This way I can get a full idea of the problem before determining the best next steps.

Looking forward to hearing back and continuing to assist!

Hi Tried the above, first page stayed with the manual changes, subsequent pages have now changed their order and are not following my manual adjustments?
