Categories in menus by order, not alphabetical (6 posts)

    Hi! I've installed WordPress with the Pixel theme and it works like a dream. However, the menu shows categories in alphabetical order which doesn't suit me at all. Is there any way to work around this?

    Bonus question: my site is kind of content-heavy and not divided into that many pages. Needless to say, there is a bit of scrolling involved. I'd like there to be a scroll within the content area, so that the user always sees the menu. Tips and/or tricks for this?

    Best regards,
    Mattis

    See the orderby parameter.

    Internal scrollbars often cause more problems than they solve. Inserting "back to top" links every so often in your content should allow site visitors to jump quickly back to the top of the page, and hence, the site menu.

    You might want to try this plugin to gain control of your post order:

    Try looking in the template file for your menu (perhaps sidebar.php or header.php). Look for wp_list_categories().

    Hi,I am new at all this so I hope I am saying this so you can understand me. I to have installed the pixel theme 2.0.2 and i do see a menu bar under my title. Is there any way i can take the catagories off the top of my page and put them into that menu bar next to "home".
    Also was wondering if I can take my slogan and move it to the right side(same location,just different side). Last, have a search bar that came with my theme am i able to remove it and replace it with a google search bar? www4nostress.com
