Sorting & ordering the product table
WooCommerce Product Table comes with 2 options for sorting the table when it first loads. Once the table has loaded, customers can click on a column heading to sort by that column.
sort_by option controls which column the table is sorted by when first displayed.
If not specified, the WooCommerce default product ordering is used. This can be found under the WooCommerce -> Settings -> Products -> Display menu.
You can sort by any of the following:
title) – sort by product name
id– sort by product ID (note: this is different to SKU)
menu_order– sort by the order listed in the Products menu when in the “Sorting” view
date– sort by date published
modified– sort by the last modified date
price– sort by price
popularity– sort by number of sales
rating) – sort by the average review score
rand– apply random ordering
In addition, if you are not using the lazy load option, you can sort by any other column present in the table. E.g.
For lazy loaded tables, you can only sort by the keywords listed above. This is because the sorting is handled by the server when the products are retrieved from the database.
- Sort using keyword:
[product_table columns="name,tags,categories,price,add-to-cart" sort_by="rating"]
- Sort using any column in table (when lazy load is disabled):
[product_table columns="sku,image,name,price,add-to-cart" sort_by="sku"]
sort_order option controls the direction in which the table is sorted. Use
asc for ascending order or
desc for descending order.
The defaults is
desc for date sorting and
asc for everything else.
[product_table columns="name,price,add-to-cart" sort_by="price" sort_order="desc"]
Can I sort by multiple columns?
No, this is not currently possible. The table can only be sorted by a single column.
