Help Sorting CMS Items


Loving the CMS collections and styling. Is there a way to sort the items to show specific ones first? Or is there a way to just show a section of them. I want to have all my clothing items in a collection but only show a specific number of shirts.


Hey @theajnci, CMS Collections are great! Part of the power comes through being able to filter, sort, and limit list to give you greater control and flexibility. Here’s an article and video that can explain it quicker and better than I can. Happy designing!


Just to add to @matthewpmunger advice - you can also set a # Number field in the CMS collection fields, which allows you or the client to override default ordering by setting a number. Then in the ‘sort order’ select the number field and sort ‘smallest to largest’.


Yep, I do this a lot too.
