Sort page in alphabatical order in sites.html (AEM 6.3)

himanshusinghal 22-10-2018

Hi,

I'm using AEM 6.3 and want to sort pages in sites.html in alphabetical order. I want to sort the pages in alphabatical based on page title.

I've followed the steps mentioned in blog Adobe Experience Manager Customization: AEM 6.2 sort pages in sites admin console and I'm able to sort the pages based on last modified and last published but not able to sort then based on title.

Any idea?

Regards,
Himanshu

Hi,

The sorting is based on java.util.Comparator

which compare string(type) character by character based on ASCII and returns integer based on comparison result.

So sorting order is correct in above screenshot.

You can find complete code at:

Thanks Arun for providing detailed explanation 🙂

I've 1 more question here about how it can be achieved in Classic UI?

Thanks Arun for the detailed explanation.

But, I think either I failed to explain properly or I'm missing something here.

The pages order which you've shown in screenshot (ascending z-a, Z-A)

togglePage -> myProj63 -> myHTL63 -> demo2 -> demo-wr -> common -> ?? --> ??

The WE.Train & WE.Retail, shouldn't it come at the top?

Also, could you please share the files path where I can find the code you've attached?

Hi,

The sorting of pages based on title shall appear based on page load.

The package which is shared in blog, it contains overlay of all 3 views (list, column and card). And, if I used the property value as "published" then it shows the pages as per last modified status in ascending or descending order.

I want the same in case of title as well.
