Default Sorting Of Vendors

In the "vendors" page, the default sorting is by name. Does anyone know how I can chance this so that by default is it by vendor rating?




$params['get_description'] = 'Y';


if (empty($_REQUEST['sort_by']) && Registry::get('addons.discussion.status') == 'A') { 
    $params['sort_by'] = 'rating';
    $params['sort_order'] = 'desc';

(!) Not tested

Worked like a charm... Thank you eCom

You are welcome! :)

One further question. Among equally rated vendors, it sorts them by name (Z to A). How can I change this to A to Z?

It is not possible out of the box. Additional code changes are required
