How can I sort products in the Backend of Aimeos to get their own sequence in the Frontend?

In the backend I can change the number of the position, but do not change anything in Frontend.

You have to rebuild the product index by running the Aimeos scheduler task with "Catalog Index Rebuild" enabled for your site.

The positions does only have an effect if a category is selected in the frontend. If the product list is a search result, the database creates the product order. You can configure a default category e.g. for the root category using

The Sorting works in the backed. Unfortunately it is not working in the frontend.

I set the default category in typoscript.
Code: Select allplugin.tx_aimeos.settings.client.html.catalog {
  lists {
    catid-default = 10

OK, that explains the problem. If you try to configure the "catid-default" setting via TypoScript, it's not passed to Aimeos because "catid-default" is also defined in the FlexForms of the catalog list and stage plugin. TYPO3 will overwrite your TS setting by the FlexForm value which is null or an empty string if you haven't selected a category in the Flexform.

To get it working as expected, you need to configure the default category ID in the FlexForm and not in the TypoScript.
