Not to remove the usefullness of this extension. However, I would recommend sorting in sql instead of in template, if possible. It's in general a lot faster and cleaner.

Hey, great extension, thank you very much!

Arne Bakkeb√ł is right with extended_sort I think, but I like this one =)

Maybe you are interested to add my little extension to yours to sort by price:


case 'sort_key':

$objectA = self::getObjectAttributeSortKey( $objectA, $attributeName );

$objectB = self::getObjectAttributeSortKey( $objectB, $attributeName );

$objectAAttributeValue = '';

$objectBAttributeValue = '';

// if price is gt... (sort_key_int)

if ( $objectA > $objectB ) {

// Making ObjectA to be less than ObjectB

// Jumping to comparing function

$objectAAttributeValue = 'a';

$objectBAttributeValue = 'b';

} else {

$objectAAttributeValue = 'b';

$objectBAttributeValue = 'a';





public static function getObjectAttributeSortKey( $object, $attributeName ) {

$attribute = self::getObjectAttribute( $object, $attributeName );

//sort_key_int sometimes has a difference from 1, maybe a bug...

//return $attribute->SortKeyInt;

$Price = sprintf ( '%01.2f', $attribute->DataFloat );

$PriceInt = (int) str_replace(',','',str_replace('.','',str_replace(' ','',$Price)));

return $PriceInt;




{def $sorted_children = get_sorted_objects( $children_arr, array(



array( 'sort_key', 'price' )




best regards

I think you were talking about "typed" sorting, right? Maybe it is worth to add attribute value's type specificator. Will think how to manage that.

Thanks for idea happy.gif Emoticon
