I have a parametric search view setup that shows certain Product Categories that I have selected: hidden link

I’d like to have the results always display products from one category first, then display the rest, but I don’t see an option for that. Is it possible?

Thanks

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for asking!

I'm afraid, this kind of grouping feature is not supported, but you're welcome to submit this as a feature request:

One possible workaround to achieve something similar is to use a product post view, nested inside a product categories taxonomy view as explained in the following guide:
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/using-a-child-view-in-a-taxonomy-view-layout/

Important: Please note that in this approach you'll lose the ability to add front-end search filters since the taxonomy views don't support them.

regards,
Waqar

Ok, thanks for the reply. That’s unfortunate but I’ll look for another solution. The front-end search filters are the most important aspect so we cannot lose those.

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for the update and sorry I couldn't offer a more useful suggestion in this case.

But for a new question/concern you're welcome to open a new ticket.

regards,
Waqar

I ended up using Order By the Menu Order option to group items together. My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
