To alphabetize your Business Directory use the [business_directory] shortcode with the orderby=”name” parameter:  [business_directory orderby="name"]

>> See Example Business Directory Page

You can also create an alpha order page for a specific category, using the [business_directory]shortcode and the category parameter. ie: [business_directory category="your-category" orderby="name"]  Where ‘your-category’ is replaced with a category that you are using in your directory.

Search Results Page

The search results page will automatically display in alpha order.

Category Pages

If you are using the [business_categories] shortcode, first go to the Chamber Dashboard Settings page and check the ‘order category pages by business name’ option.  When you add the [business_categories] shortcode to a page, a list of your categories will be displayed in alpha order.

>> See Example Business Category Page

When you click on a specific category, the results there will be in alpha order as well.

NOTE: When using the [business_categories] shortcode, you can control which fields are shown on the category pages from the Chamber Dashboard Settings page, however, the page will pick up its formatting from your theme.
