Insert new subcat above other subcats
I'm trying to figure the simplest way to insert a new subcategory on top of the other subcategories.
I used to do this every week until I upgraded to the most recent version. Before the upgrade I was able to enter zero and they'd all reorder after that. Now if I enter zero, I end up with two zeros, and they're in the wrong order.
I have a couple of hundred subcats, that's a lot of renumbering every week.
There's a sort order in the category editor, but it seems to refer to the photos in the category, not subcategories. I tried setting it to most recent, and it didn't change the category sort order.
The Sort Subcats link would be excellent, except it puts the oldest at the top (since they're sequentially named).
Any help would be appreciated.
The sort of subcats is always placed at the end of the list. To sort them you click sort subcats in admin => edit categories on the parent category
When I click sort subcats it only sorts them alphabetically, which is the opposite of what I need since the subcats are sequential. Is there a way to have the sort subcats link sort another way? Changing "Default Sort Order" has no effect on this.
when you hit sort subcats you get a screen with them all listed and you place the numbers of how you want them ordered there
Yes, I know, but as I said in my opening post "I have a couple of hundred subcats, that's a lot of renumbering every week". Is there any way to:
a) restore the now missing function of entering zero to insert at the beginning of the list
or b) change the default sort from alphabetic to reverse alphabetic
How do I is a forum for us to explain to you how the program operates if you are unclear on how it is suppose to operate. I have explained how this function operates and that there is built in a sort subcats feature.
Your going to have to hack your code if your trying to do something other than the program is made to do. When you add a subcat it is automatically placed at the bottom of the subcat order.
You use the sort subcats list to order them in any other order than the default. The sort is automatically catname and you can try altering the adm-cats.php file for anything else.
Here is where you want to look cause this is where we define the catorder
