So I have created a custom post type with custom values and customize my custom post type admin columns.

You can see here how my custom post type is looking in admin panel.

And as you can see I can order by title all posts and I was wondering if I could do same for all columns, like "info" etc.

Is it possible?

I am using this code, to display columns like I wanna :

//display catalog products in nice list
add_action("manage_posts_custom_column",  "catalog_custom_columns");
add_filter("manage_edit-catalog_columns", "catalog_edit_columns");

function catalog_edit_columns($columns){
  $columns = array(
    "cb" => "<input type=\"checkbox\" />",
    "title" => "Product Title",
    "description" => "Info",
    "skills" => "Category",
     "year" => "Price",


  return $columns;

function catalog_custom_columns($column){
  global $post;

  switch ($column) {
    case "description":
     case "skills":
      echo get_the_term_list($post->ID, 'atrakcijas', '', ', ','');
    case "year":
      $custom = get_post_custom();
      echo $custom["product_price"][0]; ?>Ls<?php
