Sorting does not work

User franky466 2016-02-03 15:12:17

Sorting does not work in version 2.2.11. The first column of an address list I want to sort them alphabetically. In version 2.2.7 it worked.

please note latest versions have a new field property called 'sortable' that enables/disables the sorting for specific columns. If this is not your problem, please give more details about your issue (which is the sorting that does not work, default sorting inside a list/view,front end user sorting?) so we can reproduce here.

Thanks, regards

I don't find the new field property called 'sortable' .

Please visit my testing-area

list is configured in the backend "sorted by Name - ascending"
You can change the order in the frontend.

But there is no alphabetical sorting possible

Your're right, we've found that strange issue on some cases. Please download and upgrade to latest version.

Sorting now works. But behind the list will appear the following source-code:

"string(257) "select distinct(v.idrecord),(select v0.value from #__listmanager_values v0 where v0.idfield=24 and v0.idrecord=v.idrecord) as values0 from #__listmanager_field f left join #__listmanager_values v on where f.idlisting=1 order by values0 asc"

Pleased look again ......

Hi Dev,

sorting works with the new version but only with whole numbers according to my test. ie 1, 2, 3.

it does not work well with decimals and percentages on my list ie 2.40%, 2.30%.

i wonder if you can reproduce it on your site.

Thanks alot

the sorting can be of type 'numeric', so it will work with whole and decimal numbers, and 'text'. When you place a field content like 2.40% we assume you have defined the field as 'text' so the sorting will be in alphabetical order. Please try configuring the field as 'numeric' and launching again the sorting function.
