To make the categories in the left area appear in the same order as the categories from the products dropdown list in PowerStore 3 you just need to update the main template.

Go into Templates > Main.dwt.php. In this file on line 269 you should have this code:

$query_SubCategoryList = "SELECT * FROM ps3_categories WHERE CategoryParent = ".$StartWith . " ORDER BY CategoryName";

Update this line of code so that it is ordered by the CategoryID like this:

$query_SubCategoryList = "SELECT * FROM ps3_categories WHERE CategoryParent = ".$StartWith . " ORDER BY CategoryID";

As for using single quotes and apostrophes in the names you can do this by using the entity version of this character like this:

use this for double quote:


use this for single quote
