A guide to customising the order of categories and courses on your website and mobile app
Changing the order of categories
Navigate to the categories section on your admin dashboard.
Click on the Edit Order button at top-right. This will take you to the sorting mode.
To change the order in which categories are displayed - first click on collapse all on the top-right. This will display all the categories you have. Then, you can put any categories at the desired position by clicking and dragging that item by the grey icon shown on the left of each category item.
Once you're satisfied with the order of the categories, click on the Save button on top right.
Changing the order of sub-categories
The process is very similar to changing the order of categories.
However, this time there is no need to press collapse all - simply navigate to the desired category, and drag & rearrange the order of subcategories within it.
In case you have sub-sub-categories or more depth of hierarchy, the process is very similar. Just keep expanding the desired category / sub-category by clicking on the blue drop down button to expose its children categories and rearrange them.
Changing the order of courses
To change the order of courses in a category or sub-category, bring your mouse pointer over that item and click on Sort Products
It will redirect to all the courses in that category / sub-category - here you can rearrange the courses to your desired order by dragging them by the icon on the top-left of each course card. Once you're satisfied with the order - hit the Save button on top right.
How does this affect your academy
The order of courses and categories you finalize are reflected in two areas of your academy
- Home page : The home page will show the categories and courses in the order you have decided.
- All courses : This page will also reflect all the changes in order that has been made.
Please note that when courses are aggregated to a level and displayed, the order is decided by the order of the sub-categories being aggregated, and then by the order of courses within those sub-categories.
For example, if you have 3 sub-categories - A, B, C - in that order. And each sub-category contains 3 courses at an aggregated level it will be displayed as A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, C3.
If we switch the order of A, B - then the aggregated view will show as B1, B2, B3, A1, A2, A3, C1, C2, C3.
This aggregation logic will affect how the courses are shown when learners are viewing courses in "All categories" or are viewing all courses in a particular category which has further sub-categories.
