I have an attribute I created called “sales_rank” that I have set to use as a sortable attribute. However, when I choose it from the product list, it is not sorting how I expect. On further inspection, it appears that it’s sorting as a text field and not as a number. This means that it will go 101, 1014, 102, 1035, 104, 11, 1204, etc….
How do I fix this? When creating the attribute, there’s no way to tell it it’s a number. You can select “Integer” from the “Input Validation” box, so is that the answer? I haven’t tried it yet…
