Controlling Item Display Sequence

  Click to return to Tutorial Table of Contents  

Your TIAS.com shop consists of items. You can control the display of the items and cause them to be displayed by age, by price, by category and several other ways.   This is done by sorting the items into the sequence you want and then assigning sequence numbers to the items.   These sequence numbers can be for all items in a category, for your entire store or when you maintain your inventory. This tutorial explains how.
  1. Go to your Members Pages (http://www.tias.com/members/). If your members page is not currently displayed, click this link Members Pages to open it in a new window so you can toggle back and forth between your maintenance page and this tutorial.
  2. Changing the numbers on on an entire category.  Select the category that you are going to change.  When you see it, it will be in the order that the customer will see it.  You have a two options:  you can re-sequence the category at random (not unlike reorganizing a store window) or you can arrange the inventory and make that order permanent.  These options are described separately below.
    • Define the order of the items in the category
      • At the top of the inventory display page, you'll see an option titled 'Sort by' and below it there are a number of different options -- you can lick the appropriate link and sort the inventory alphabetically by title, description, sub category, numerically by item number, the sequence number, price, but status or organize it so the newest is first
        :
      •  
      • If you want to make this order permanent for this single category, click the entry on the left side menu that is titled 'Resequence One Category'.   The category will be resequenced and displayed in the new order that the customer will see it.
      • If you want to make this order permanent for ALL categories, click the entry on the left side menu that is titled 'Resequence All Inventory'.  The category will be resequenced and displayed in the new order that the customer will see it
      • If you want to move one item to be first this category, update it and set the sequence number as in option (2) above.

       

    • Random Resequence 
        • Click the option on the left menu titled 'Resequence items randomly'. 
        • The category will be resequenced and displayed in the new order that the customer will see it
        • If you want to move one item to be first in this category, update it and set the sequence number as in option (2) above.


  3. Changing a single sequence number
      • Select the option from your left side menu that is titled Maintain Inventory

        When you select the option, you'll see the entry page.  Each field has a help prompt adjacent to it that explains the purpose of the field. The field that controls the display sequence is titled 'Sequence #'  


        Simply change this value to a lower number, click 'Apply Changes' at the bottom of the page and the item will now show before items where the sequence number is higher.
