Allows you to alphabetize categories by post title, by trimming leading text, by post date.
Smart Category Ordering is a plugin that allows you to sort your post content (per category). You can apply your sorting to a single category, or have your settings follow a category tree, covering the parent and children categories.
When sorting by "Smart Title", that option is there to the leading 'a', 'an' or 'the' from a post title when sorting. This is the only difference between "Smart Title" and "Title."
