Customising Category Sort Order
« on: 08.06.2017 12:11:41 »
If one uses the Downloads Order field in the Lists Layouts tab of a Single Category menu item to select the menu order, say Reverse Alpha, then on first display the Downloads are listed in the requested order.
Whilst these are being displayed if one uses the Order Sort bar to select another sort order then no Downloads are listed and the message 'No files are available yet for this category.' appears.  However the arrows indicating there are multiple pages does appear - see pic
 
The test site was set up as described in

Hi Colin,
sad to say but I could not reproduce it here. Maybe could help a few pics about structure and settings?

Hi,
Is there an update on this issue?
As of the last update 3.2.54 I still have this issue.

To Summarize:
Object is to have different categories sort their downloads in different orders (i.e. latest, or name, etc.)
This is done by creating a hidden menu. In the options of that menu the order is set.
However, when the order is different than the default, although all downloads show on first load, when clicking to a different page (e.g. page 2 of download list) or to a different order, the downloads and  ordering options disappear, and don't show up until a log out and log back in.

I would appreciate a solution to this bug.

Thank you,
Tomás
