Doesn't work with 2.6.2 (8 posts)

    The drag and drop feature on the configuration page does not work so I cannot order the pages. Any chance the drag and drop feature could be replaced until resolved with a simple text box along-side each page that can be prioritised by number?

    It does work with 2.6.2 and I would suspect another plugin you have installed is interfering (incorrectly) with the Javascript includes. None of the drag and drop code has changed in over a year so it won't just suddenly stop working with new releases.

    the drag and drop mechanism does work with 2.6.2. how ever it does not extend to the categories on the front end.
    is there a condition that needs to be set in the category-template.php file.

    Has this issue been replicated or is it just me?

    function wp_list_categories($args = '') {
    $defaults = array(
    'show_option_all' => '', 'orderby' => 'name',

    this could be the issue.

    I see there is an order by ID
    I wonder if the odering widget is setting this unique order ID.

    hmmmmmm

    If you are using widgets you need to swap out the built in WP widget with the "My Category Order" widget the plugin adds. That will allow the order to show up on your front end. And if you are using a caching plugin you'll need to delete your cache to see the new order.

    If you are curious about how it does the ordering, I add a column to the database where the drag and drop order gets saved, then I have to modify one of the taxonomy functions to allow sorting on that column. That all happens automatically when you load up the My Category Order admin page.

    I am also having the drag and drop problem, and it's happening on both WP 2.7 and 2.7.1. The suggested manual option would be a nice addition since clearly there are addins out there that have code conflicting with JQuery in this addin.

    OK, figured it out -- it's the "Position Yourself" plugin that is interfering with the drag and drop feature. Once I disabled it was able to reorder categories and then re-enable the PY addin. Just have to remember to do that each time you want to reorder categories :)

    If this can be fixed that would be great for the future.

    Thanks for a useful plugin!

    Yup, that plugin is incorrectly including his jQuery libraries. It needs to be updated for the current version of WordPress that includes all the jQuery with the install.
