We’re pretty excited to show off a new WebKite feature: Sorts. Sorts might not sound too exciting, but in actuality it changes the data-game. WebKite is all about helping you take your data (whether that’s a list of recipes, businesses, or collection of your favorite items) and publish it online. That way it’s simple to monetize, share, and make it easily accessible to your community.
So how does the new sorting functionality play a part? With the data you have already uploaded to WebKite, you can now sort by attributes that are numerical or able to be alphabetized. If you watch the video demo above, that means on my pizza database I can sort by the price of a large plain (high-to-low / low-to-high) and my own five-star pizza rating.
But that’s just the start. Once you have a set of sorts added to your WebKite powered site, you can combine sorts and filters to really fine-tune results. This means your visitors can find exactly what they’re looking for. Once they apply a couple of filters through the sidebar, they can refine the results with sorts. Rearrange items according to price, or user ratings, or put them in some sort of logical order.
Combining filters and sorts can help your database of information become incredibly searchable, valuable, and interactive.
