Merchandising categories in Magento shouldn't be this hard.
Discover how easy it can be using a simple extension that works.
No extra indexes, no unnecessary features, just the product ordering interface you expected.
Never deal with having to assign numeric positions again. The Enhanced Category Products extension makes it possible to re-arrange products in a category by dragging and dropping, or using an automated sort to have the system do most of the work for you.
Each product in a category is shown with the essential information you need to make decisions about the best way to merchandise your inventory. Stock status, quantities, SKU and price are all shown below the product's image, making it trivial to manually re-arrange products by a variety of different criteria.
Other merchandising extensions try to do too much and throw in the kitchen sink, leading to performance problems, confusing interfaces, and potential security issues. The Enhanced Category Products extension instead goes for a lean and to-the-point approach that ensures that you can quickly do what you need without having to worry about jumping through hoops.
