Sorting categories

Postby stefan » Fri Dec 06, 2013 10:37 am


Sometime ago I asked for a way to sort the series (listed under browse series). I think the same applies to categories. Is there a way to order them alphabetically?

I guess a good feature would be a graphical interface that lets users sort the categories with drag and drop. Wordpress has something like this. Linguists are used to a certain order (Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Semantics, Pragmatics), which does not correspond to an alphabetic order. So having a possibility to define this order would be great.

Hi Stefan,

Added for release in OMP 1.1 -- see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8508. This will be a tough one to back-port to OMP 1.0, so I'd suggest waiting for OMP 1.1.
