Gecka Terms Ordering


Have you ever wanted to sort your categories using drag and drop? Have you ever used a plugin that implements some sort of custom taxonomy or custom categories but no drag and drop sorting support?

Then, that plugin is for you. Using it you can enable categories custom ordering using drag and drop. But not only, you can set it to enable custom ordering of any other taxonomy’s terms, even taxonomies created by other plugins.

By default, drag and drop sorting is enabled for your posts categories. If you want to order any other taxonomy, go read the plugin’s page on our website.

Well-written plugin

This plugin is implemented quite eloquently. It does require a little bit of know-how if you want to add custom taxonomies outside of the built-in post category taxonomy, but still pretty easily done:

// Add term order support for Gecka Terms Ordering plugin
if ( function_exists( 'add_term_ordering_support' ) ) {
add_term_ordering_support( array('style', 'application', 'construction') );

It doesn’t like the author has been active for 9 months at this point though. Hope he/she is okay!

Very useful! 役に立つ

This plugin does what is says in a very elegant way, re-using the existing WP category/taxonomy interface, so there’s nothing new to learn or no additional menus. Very clever, esp. for multi-lingual sites (this needs no translation as it’s all visual).
Only missing thing is a higher-res loading icon for retina displays 😉

Here’s a Japanese description for anyone who needs it (or google to pick up).

if( function_exists('add_term_ordering_support') ) {
    add_term_ordering_support ('<strong>the_taxonomy_name</strong>');
