    Hi,

    I am developing a site that needs it's linkbar categories in a specific order. I am assuming there is an easy way to do this, but I can't for the life of me figure out how. Might be because it's late. Anyway, it seems like there should be a way to rate the categories themselves, and then tell WP to arrange them in the sidebar by rating. That way, the most important category of links would be at the top, and so on. Am I missing something?

    Aha! After a bit more diggging, I found that...

    a) a lot of other people have run into this problem:

    and b) someone solved it:

    Anyway, i'm glad I found a solution, but as other users have pointed out, that this should really be built in.

    No! I spoke too soon! What I found would be perfect, except for the fact that it is for categories and not link categories. Help! Would it be possible to edit a few lines in perisort and make it do the same thing for link categories that it does for post categories?

    If you need the link cats in a specific order, have you looked at using wp_get_linksbyname or get_linksbyname to call each link list individually?
