Question Change The Order Of The Categories

    I made the setup that if a user uploads images, he has to choose a category first with the drop-down choice.

    Is there a way to change the order of the categories how they appear in this drop-down choice? So more common categories comes at top, less used categories at the buttom?

    Hello,

    Please take a look on AdminCP -> XenGallery -> Categories. Each category has a display order. You could change that value to arrange your categories.

    Hello,

    is it also possible to change the display order of albums by an id? I do not need the orders "latest updated and most comments".... I´d rather prefer a sticky order that i choose.

    Regards

    You can do that by choosing the "Last created date" in the option:

    Hi,

    thank you for your answer but that is not what i wanted. I would like to have a display order that I can provide myself. sing "the date" or "last updated" is not suitable for me. I would like to have an additional field where I can use numbers "10", "20", "30" etc. for ordering... That would be great!

    Regards
    Ulli

    The order you use need to be supported in the code before it could be used. In order to allow freely control this, it requires open the code for any field sort. This first can lead to error where invalid field name is entered. Or more dangerous, if admin account is controlled by bad Mod, this is the security hole.

    If you really need this, I suggest you modify the code yourself to support any sorting you want.
