Change order of blogroll categories (4 posts)

    I spoke too soon when I said this was resolved. It turns out the listing order of categories is alphabetical. I had renamed the categories and that's why they ended up in an order to my liking, although I didn't know that was why until I renamed one again and it changed position.

    So, can there be an order other than alphabetical? I'd like my primary (first created) category to be at the top. Is there anyway to do this? Sounds like a minor thing, but it's important to me.

    The template tag, wp_list_bookmarks(), has a category_orderby argument that you could use, but you don't have access to that with the native Links Widget so consider downloading and installing Otto's PHP Code Widget.

    Please note I closed one of your topics and pointed to the other related topic you started.

    I'm using a theme that displays my categories horizontally across the top of my site like a normal site navigation. To reorder I used http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/order-categories/ and it worked like a dream. It lets me drag and drop category position.

    I'm also hosting my own site and found that uploading the plugin myself it didn't work so i installed from the url above. Much easier and worked first time.
