Order by category, global configuration and override

Hi,

I´m experimenting a inconvenience, don´t know if is working as intended

Before:

I had a global order, and in the category, I setted "override nucleo order" to yes, that way, I could order by a custom field

Now:

That stopped working. On the frontend view, I couldn´t select "use default order" because it returned to the global option selected. I had to change on the category from "use global" to "use category order"

This means that before it was enough with the "use override nucleo order", but now I have to already choose "use category order"

Did I miss something?

This is what should be happening
when you select "default order"

- after page reloads
the calculated default order will be auto-selected

The above is intentionak
- you see we need to tell user what is the default order

What you need to do is
- to make sure that the drop down includes your default ordering

So I need to explicity select the option "Use category order" on each category to override? the option "use override core order" is obsolete?

Hello

maybe you have set a value in some of the parent categories

then the inherited value is of that parent category and not of the component setting

You can test this version (use "Install via URL")
https://github.com/FLEXIcontent/flexicontent-cck/archive/3.2.x-stable.zip

it will show the inherited values for the drop-down select parameters too
thus you can see the inherited value next to the 'use global'

e.g.
Use global (Best rated)
instead of just
Use global

I didn´t have properly updated my forum signature, the problem its happening at v3.2.1.7

Its a parent category

On "Parameter inheritance", I have "Inherit parameters from global"

the value for "Order core fields" was set as "Use global"
the value for "Override core order" was set to "Yes"

With that configuration, I got the global configuration. The version you provided confirm this


With that in mind I think that there is something that needs clarification. "Override core order" is set to true, but does nothing? because "use global" takes prevalence? Can we safely remove it?

Hello

actually

"Use global" in FC configured means "Inherited"

That is "inherited from heritage source"
- which can be "parent categories" or directly from "global = component parameters"

Similar "Use global" in item parameters
- means inherit from type and then inherit from component parameters

and "Use global" item layout parameters
- means inherit from type layout parameters and then inherit from global layout parameters

i making some improvements on this,
i have added as you have seen heritage display to drop-down selects too

- and for the default values in PHP layout files , i will add them as "hint" (placeholder) in the item.xml , category.xml (instead of showing empty)
