My Category Order

My Category Order allows you to set the order in which categories will appear in the sidebar.

3.3.1

  • Added Danish translation

3.0.1

  • Added support for multiple Category dropdowns on the page, previously only the first one worked
  • Updated drag and drop to include a placeholder, makes it much easier to see where items will move
  • Updated styles to fit in with WordPress better
  • Updated page code to use regular submit buttons, less reliance on Javascript and query strings
  • Added Ukranian translation, thanks Jurko

2.8.7

  • Widget and translation bug fixes
  • Added Portuguese translation, thanks Tiago

2.8.6

  • Significant backend changes, only compatible with 2.8 and above
  • Transitioned to new Widget API, breaking backwards compatibility in the process
  • Multiple widgets are now supported
  • Widget options will have to repopulated
  • Added more complete widget options, should be able to do just about everything you can in code
  • Removed taxonomy.php hack, hooking into "get_terms_orderby" filter for category ordering now, no more visiting page after each WordPress update
  • The PO file has changed and translations will need to be updated

2.8.3

  • Trying to fix Javascript onload issues. Settled on using the addLoadEvent function built into WordPress. If the sorting does not initialize then you have a plugin that is incorrectly overriding the window.onload event. There is nothing I can do to help.

2.8.1

  • Added Czech translation (Jan)

2.8

  • Updated for 2.8 compatibility

2.7.1

  • If your categories don't show up for ordering your DB user account must have ALTER permissions, the plugin adds columns to store the order
  • Added a call to $wpdb->show_errors(); to help debug any issues
  • Translations added and thanks: Spanish (Karin), German (Wolfgang and Mike), Swedish (Mans), Italian (Stefano)

2.7

  • Updated for 2.7, now under the the new Pages menu
  • Moved to jQuery for drag and drop
  • Removed finicky AJAX submission
  • Translations added and thanks: Russian (Flector and Pink), Dutch (Anja), Polish (Zbigniew)
  • Keep those translations coming

2.6.1a

  • The plugin has been modified to be fully translated
  • The plugin patch no correctly patches taxonomy.php
  • New translation added : French, by Brahim Machkouri (http://www.category-icons.com)
  • The widget has now a description

2.6.1

  • Finally no more taxonomy.php overwriting, well kind of. After you upgrade WordPress visit the My Category Order page and it will perform the edit automatically.
  • Thanks to Submarine at http://www.category-icons.com for the code.
  • Also added string localization, email me if you are interested in translating.
