Generates the current sort value to be applied to the page


[%sortby type:'products'/%]


Returns the value from the setting Default sort order for product listings on the page Settings & tools > All settings & tools > Web Store > Webstore Settings by default. Unless changed, the default value is popular.

The above result would print popular by default, which is Maropost Commerce Cloud's default sort option for the product lists. You can change this by either changing the config for the default sort order in the webshop config. Keep in mind that this just changes the default, so if you specify a sort order using the sortby:'' param on the thumb_list this will override your page sortby.

`value:''` `brand`, `highest_price`, `largest_item`, `longest_item`, `lowest_price`, `name`, `popular`, `shortest_item`, `SKU`, `smallest_item`, `sortbycol`, `sortorder`, `sortorder2`, `sortorder_price`, `sortorder2_price`, `sortorder_sortorder2`, `subtype_sortorder2`, `wishlist`
