I have a content type X. A view is used to display this content type (X), as a table. The content type has a field called "Preferred" which contains boolean values. I need to sort the table so that the "Preferred:true" items display at the top of the table.

How can I achieve it?


Add a new Sort Criteria sorter that sorts based on that field. Make sure it's at the top of your list of sort criteria.

If you don't want there to be a column for it in the table, click "exclude from display" in the field settings.

  • I tried that but, it doesn't work. I created a new Sort Criteria for Preferred. It sorts them together but, they are not at the top of the table. – Mandeep Jul 31 '12 at 21:01
  • and if my logic gene is in gear today, you'll want to sort descending so that all the 1's come first and then the 0's. – Jimajamma Jul 31 '12 at 21:02
  • What exactly did you do when you tried it? What happened when you tried? – beth Jul 31 '12 at 21:04
  • Okay. I added the Sort criteria and now it sorts correctly. But, is there anyway to sort the rest of the columns (that are not preferred true) to be alphabetical? – Mandeep Jul 31 '12 at 21:05
  • Actually, I just added another sort criteria to sort by title and everything works fine. Funny thing is, I tried the same thing earlier and it was not working. Anyways, Thank You! – Mandeep Jul 31 '12 at 21:14
