I am looking for a way to sort by two fields. For example, I want to sort by Status (1 New, 2 Reduced,3 Active) so that all New listings are together, all Active are together etc. Then within each of those I want it to sort by Price.
sort of like using sort_order=17,123,forward and then sort_order=5,123,reverse where lfield17 is Status and it sorts by ascending numbers and then within that each Status it sorts via lfield5 (Price) in descending order.
There isn't a built in way to sort by two fields but here is one way it could be done:
Embed search result queries using custom stripped down templates. So for example for New you would have
the New Listings heading then embed this search query:
Within the search query you can control the sort options and you can add the custom template to the end:
Then repeat for Reduced:
And so on. If you think this method will work for you, reply to the support ticket you sent in with any questions you have so I can provide more details.
