To set them, do this in your backend.

  • Click on the Home item's name (or whatever item happens to be your default item, with the star).
  • Click on the little triangle next to Parameters - Advanced on the right.
  • Set the Category Order to "No. Order by Primary Order Only."
  • Set the Primary Order to "Default."
  • Hit the Save button at the upper right.
