as a general rule, you should try to sort the products in order of sales popularity.
whichever way you go with pagination, this will be better.
Another one we've struggled with, We've had such disastrous results with changing our coding in the past that we've just left it the way it is out of fear of breaking the whole machine. Our products are basically just coded to appear alphabetically. Allowing us to tinker around with the order actually scares us a bit.
I totally agree with you, this would be the most ideal. I'm trying to make a positive change to the site with the least complex coding possible.
Thanks for all the input. I'm haivng my developer give me a rundown of how this might effect page load but so far I can't think of any good reason NOT to do this!
It was mentioned to try to get my categories down to 12 products per page. In this case it just wouldnt be possible. We're dealing with 'Licensed' products so basically, each category is a license. It's more likely that they will get bigger rather than smaller.
