Questions Answers
Branch? 1.7.5.x
Description? The ordering of products was enabled when sort by position, which made the UX confusing. Now ordering is enabled only when the user clicked on the REORDER button, and this mode all filters input are disabled (in consistency with the fact that they are ignored). For more clarity the selected Category name is displayed in the filter select tree.
Type? bug fix
Category? BO
BC breaks? no
Deprecations? no
Fixed ticket? #10345
How to test? Go to the Product catalog in BO, perform searches and sorting in normal mode. Select a category, the selected category is now displayed. Click on REORDER button, the filters are disabled and you can frag and drop the items. Order products by position, the drag and drop is disabled, and you can perform some research.

We must not introduce any more business logic in this controller as we plan to remove it at some point: let's extract what can be re-used in the future Product Controller. See PrestaShop/prestafony-project#7 for more information.

@PierreRambaud I got rid of the extract calls
@mickaelandrieu I agree with you, this only allowed to get the selected category without fetching it (since the info was in the Form data), but it was ugly from the start

Instead I fetch the selected category with Category class, which is not super either but at least there is less garbage code
There would be so many ways to perform this better but which would require a lot of refactoring in this controller..

If you still don't like the use of category ObjectModel I will simply remove as it was not really the purpose of this PR/Issue, I just thought showing the selected category made the catalog page much more understandable (for now the info is not shown anywhere and you don't event know you have filtered products from the database filters.. cheap UI experience)

Actually, the wording Reorder is confusing for translators - some get it as ordering something again while it should be understood in the context of changing position... perhaps we should think of a better formulation for future versions? Now it is too late because of string freeze but let's keep it in mind! (w/ @marionf)

Hey again, the Crowdin community suggested 'Sort order' instead of 'Reorder' to avoid confusion in the back office, what do you think about that?
