Seriously, all of my functions, filters, and theme deep dives did not accomplish what this plugin did in seconds. I simply wanted my front end products to SORT BY DATE PUBLISHED, and Voila! This plugin did it where nothing else could. Not only that, but my theme is filled with custom product post type code, so I doubted this would work. In desperation, tried this plugin and THRILLED TO SAY IT WORKS GREAT!

All needed options are hidden in pro version.

With over 5,000 collectible items for sale in a WooCommerce store, a more customizable product sort was needed. This plugin solved our need well. One small ‘user issue’ came up shortly after installing the pro version and support came in fast, and solved our issue (our mistake for not knowing how it worked). Do not hesitate to try this plugin. I highly recommend the plugin and the seller.

Sometimes all you want is somebody to produce a plugin that does EXACTLY what you want, no frills, no bells, no whistles, nothing more, nothing less. This plugin does just that. But this plugin does exactly that only on the public-facing side of your website. What I needed was default sorting by SKU on the admin side. Why is this so difficult for WooCommerce to understand: that some people want their products sorted by SKU whenever they click on their Products page? Well, the producer of this plugin contacted me about this issue and, without being asked, produced a tiny plugin that does exactly that. So, not only do they offer a first class plugin and rapid and efficient response to support requests, they have gone over and above the call of duty and provided a solution for a problem that isn’t even theirs. If I could give this 6 out of 5, I would. Or 7. Yes, 8. What the hell 10. 10/5!
