Sort Products by Date


Magento's default category product order is by product ID. Hence products with lowest ID displayed first, newest products will never be shown even on the first page of the category they belong. Our extension doesn't change the existing sorting options but extends them. At that sorting by date can be set as default for entire catalog or per category.

Please note that this extension is provided as is under the terms of Open Software License (OSL). It is recommended to always backup your installation prior to usage.

It is always good to create full backup of your site (files and database) prior the extension installation, just in case something goes wrong.

Standard Installation Instructions

  1. Disable the Compiler if it is enabled (System > Tools > Compilation).
