This tutorial shows how to change categories order in PrestaShop 1.6.
Sometimes you need to re-order the categories displayed in the category block. In order to do it, perform the following steps.
Open admin section and navigate to Modules -> Modules -> Categories block and click on Configure in the drop down:
On the page that opened you will see two sorting criteria:
Sort: By name/By position. Select “by name” for alphabetical sorting or “by position” for the sorting based on the category id.
Sort order: Descending/Ascending. Select “descending” if you want the categories to show up from the highest to the lowest value or “ascending” to display categories from the lowest to the highest value.
Save the made changes:
