Query String not Changing Order of Products

4 replies
Last updated: Jan 20, 2023
Hello. I have this query:`const queryCollection = groq``

*[_type in ['collection','subCollection'] && slug.current == $slug][0]







'products': *[_type == 'product' && references(^._id)] | order($direction)

I am using a query string to change $direction based on user input. I load the query into $direction:

client.fetch(queryCollection, {

slug: urlSlug, direction: queryParam

But while I see 'queryParam' has the correct value with a console.log (I am alternating between _createdAt desc, price desc, price asc) the order never changes. When I manually place any of these params into the query 'products' sorts correctly. And more interestingly my slug is working as expected. Is there something wrong with the way I am passing my second param?

I got this working by making direction a template literal, which I had previously brought up in this channel. I was trying to avoid this to clean up my syntax. I would like to understand why my previous code didn't work. Is it because $direction is nested in the query?

I don’t think that params get passed to the order function. If I recall correctly, they only work for your filter and projection.
