Collection Item Options – Item list columns


In the admin screen for a collection I am showing a category in the item list columns, as well as a product image thumbnail and product code. Clicking on them allows me to reorder the list - a very nice new feature, thanks.

However, clicking the category doesn't sort the items into categories – it adds a new item. Is this the expected behaviour or should I call Department UXB?

The generated link is http://DOMAIN/perch/core/apps/content/collections/?id=1&sort=product_cat

Many thanks in advance,

What do you mean by "it adds a new item" ?

A new item is added to the collection and I am taken to the edit new item page.

Hi Jon, sorry to jump in here but I have a question related to the screenshot you posted. Are those 'real' products, as-in Perch Shop products - related to collections somehow?

I would love to have the ability to display the list of products that way in the admin, but I'm unsure how in Perch Shop (also the ability to sort the list would be awesome)

Oh yes, I see what you mean. I'll log it.

Hi Hamish

This is an online product listing for resellers using Collections, not Shop I'm afraid. I don't think this is available yet in Shop but it's early days. This has only just appeared in Core.

Thanks Drew.
