sitecore sxa - I am using paglist for showing product lists with the help of query builder and variants. its not showing proper order list, When in the query builder, I see that sort is an option, its not working in sxa pagelist component. Is there any other option to show the product items in orderwise.enter image description here

It shows based on the sorting on the base folder. in your case. (Product) is the folder, apply the sorting by right-clicking on it, and sort what you need. The default is the Sort by Relevance.

    Small adjustment of your answer. it should be ;sort:sortorder to have same ordering as seen in Content Editor. Sortorder field should be used instead of Published Oct 16, 2018 at 13:56

  • Try resetting the sort order on the sub items of product and then check. Try checking in explore mode after published Oct 16, 2018 at 14:45
