'Move to top' feature

'Move to top' funtions is a kind of promotion. You can allow users to move their ads to the top of the list. When user clicks button "move to top" current date is used in ordering and the ad is moved to top of the list as a new one. To use this function you have to set two parameters:

  1. in global options set "Prom. 'move to top'to 'yes' and set normal price and price in points for using this promotion (you can enter 0 to make it free)
  2. in Views options set Default ordering to 'Add date including promotions'

'Move on top' might be confused with 'First on list' promotion but this two are separate promotions and they work somewhat different.

On adding adverts when you will select promotion 'first on list' then advert is marked as featured. Then on adverts list when we have sorting for example by name, on the top are shown all featured adverts sorted by name and after those rest of standard adverts sorted by name.
The same situation is when we have sorting by date (or date including promotions) we will have situation like this:

  1. advert1 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  2. advert2 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  3. advert3 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 14-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  4. advert4 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date)
  5. advert5 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date)
  6. advert6 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 14-10-2013(ordering date)
  7. advert7 - 13-10-2013(created date) - 13-10-2013(ordering date)


advert 4 is newer then 3 but advert3 have promotion 'first on list'.
When we have sorting by 'date including promotions' then sorting is made by the second column. Ordering date is automatically copied from creation date when user is adding advert.
But when we are using promotion 'move to top' then ordering date is changes to current.
So using it on advert3 we will have this situation

  1. advert3 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 17-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  2. advert1 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  3. advert2 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  4. advert4 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date)
  5. advert5 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date)
  6. advert6 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 14-10-2013(ordering date)
  7. advert7 - 13-10-2013(created date) - 13-10-2013(ordering date)


and it will be first but when we will use it on advert6 then this ad will be first but before featured adverts

  1. advert3 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 17-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  2. advert1 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  3. advert2 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date) - featured
  4. advert6 - 14-10-2013(created date) - 17-10-2013(ordering date)
  5. advert4 - 16-10-2013(created date) - 16-10-2013(ordering date)
  6. advert5 - 15-10-2013(created date) - 15-10-2013(ordering date)
  7. advert7 - 13-10-2013(created date) - 13-10-2013(ordering date)
