Hi Muriel,

the link you provide to Forge explains exactly how to set defaultOrderings
in the repository.
The stuff you put in the TCA Array are pure for the Backend and Extbase
does not look there. These are two separate things.

Hope this makes it a little more clear ;-)

Kind regards,


Problems are small because we learned how to deal with them.
Problems are big because we need to learn how to deal with them.
