  1. It’s a pity get_categories doesn’t seem to respond to ‘orderby=order’. I can usort the resultant categories so it’s not insoluble, but I think it ought to.

  2. Hi,
    great Plugin. Here one more idea. To use your plugin in websites wich use images for the titel it could be useful to implemnet a checkbox to fade out the default titel “catgories” if no titel is typed in the widged.
    Best regards

  3. First of all, let me say I am using the plugin successfully in my blog. It works just fine!

    However, I couldn’t stop being bothered that it patches a core WordPress file. Digging a little bit, I noticed that the function that is being patched accepts filters, which means that you can attach custom code to it without touching the WordPress files.

    Is that an alternative you considered?


  4. Hi,
    If you aren’t using widgets, modify sidebar template to use correct orderby value: wp_list_categories(‘orderby=order&title_li=’);
    This does not works in wordpress 2.8.5

  5. Oh my. This widget it perfect! Now sure why something so simple can’t be done in the wp system to begin with but I guess that leaves the doors open for guys like you to use your creative talents. Thank you!

  7. hey there,

    i love the idea of your plugin and GREAT job on the idea, especially on the drag&drop interface on the backend!

    anyhow, the changes i make there are not visible on the frontend of my site, even after i inserted the code snippet you suggest :(

    i read some other users are having the same problem. is there any kind of a cure yet? would be amazing.

    thanks in advance!!

  8. Hi there
    Your plug in is very very useful. The plug in works with the categories listed on my side bar but it deosn’t work on the categories listed in the header. ( same list different position).
    Can you please help me make the plug in organize the categories in the header as well.
    Thanks In advance

  9. Hi,

    First I love your plugin, so thank you.

    I was wondering if there was a way to make the sub/child categories collapsable/folding either on click or hover in the drop down? Hopefully that makes sense. I’m trying to have only the parent categories show when the drop down is pulled up and then either on hover or click have the child categories appear.

    Thank you.

  10. @Stephanie Leary – it’s working ok for me in 2.9. Have you visited the “My Category Order” admin page after upgrading and then clicked “Click to Order Categories”. That’s a must for me after every WordPress upgrade.

  11. Love the plugin… I have one suggestion to include on the instruction tab @ WP.org. After I upgraded to WP 2.8.6, the plugin was broken. I had to go back in and reset the file perms on wp-includes/taxonomy.php because for some reason, when WP upgrades, it does not respect file perms on that one and it changes it back to 644. It took me a while to figure out why the plugin was broken, so maybe on the instruction tab, you might mention that you have to edit file perms on taxonomy.php after each WP upgrade.

    Thanks for a great plugin!

  12. Hello there,

    I would like to know if there is a way I can get category list for a particular Post using your sorting method. You can see the “Starring” section on each latest movie on my website. I want to order them plus want to keep my look and feel.

    Any help is highly appreciated.
