Talking to merchants around the world lets you learn about the many unique ways they need to run their stores . On example of this is a recent email I had from a merchant in the Netherlands that wanted to show BTW instead of VAT in notification emails.
There was a recent post on the Shopify eCommerce forums where someone asked how to change the sort order of products in the Admin (not the storefront). I can actually see the use case for this but thankfully a simple url change can make it happen.

The Shopify API doesn't provide a simple way to search for products with a certain SKU code. With some alternate templates and the storefront search let's look at a simple way to add a JSON endpoint for SKU searches.
I'm one of those web devs that likes to make both my source code and the output look at pretty as possible. Pretty output to me is with as much whitespace and bloat removed so a recent update to Liquid makes this simple! Let's explore it.
