Link Categories and positioning. (10 posts)

    I created my categories, for my links section, but, there is no way other than to delete and start again, in ordering them in the way I want and then, they still insist on ordering in their own fashion. Am I doing something wrong?
    Possibly/probably/obviously.

    What order do you want them listed in? By default they are ordered according to their id, which is in the order that they are created, but you can order them alphabetically too.

    I have them order by id, but that's not what shows up on the page.

    I'm having the same problem, I don't seem to be able to change the order regardless of what I do.

    Here is a short tutorial that explains how to change the sorting.

    One thing I discovered is this:

    Go to your index.php file in the folder of whichever theme you are using.

    Find the <?php get_links_list(); ?>

    In the (), list the category id numbers in the order you want them displayed, separated by commas, with no spaces. Like so:

    <?php get_links_list(25,26,27,28,29); ?>

    I tried to implement Eric's fix in the php and couldn't get it to work.

    Listed as: <?php get_links_list(1,3,2);?> with no luck.

    Any ideas? Has anyone else gotten it to work with the links out of ID order?

    Just letting people know that I have created a plugin to address this very issue by allowing you to manually set the order of link categories and links. Check it out at My Link Order
