    is there any posibility to set, or force wordpress to order categories in specific order?
    or it is ordered allways alphabetical?
    Thank you

    I was told that you can order the link categories in your sidebar by putting spaces at the beginning of the category name (and it works) - the fewer spaces the further up the list the link will come. Maybe the same thing works for post categories...
    eg.,
    'On-site links'
    '-Blogroll'
    '--Shopping'
    '---Miscellaneous'

    Where '-' is a space.

    Great tip but I found just the opposite to be true when 'managing' links - more spaces farther up the list. Still a hearty thanks for the tip.

    There is a plugin that does exactly what you want. It's called ... drum roll ... Category Order!

    You can get it here > http://www.coppit.org/code/ (scroll down to the very bottom)

    When link or link categories is not explicitly mentioned, usually categories means POST categories :)
    A careful reading of the OP is always helpful...

    well, I thought he meant post categories. but I'm not a mind reader, although I played one on tv.

    @manstraw,
    I should have been clearer: YOURS was the only relevant reply to the OP's question. Sorry for not explaining it.
