CGD Arrange Terms

Description

WordPress doesn’t have a native way to control the order of taxonomy terms. CGD Arrange Terms allows you to sort your categories, tags, and other taxonomy terms with a simple drag-and-drop interface. Re-ordering your terms has never been easier!

Features

  • Adds a separate sorting table, so no modification of WordPress native tables required
  • Low-level sorting means FAST performance and compatibility with themes and plugins without modification!
  • Drag-and-drop interface makes sorting ridiculously easy.
  • Light-weight. In fact, the main plugin file is only 150 lines!

FAQ

My terms aren’t displaying in the order I chose, what gives?

CGD Arrange Terms sorts categories and other terms by using low level filters on the get_terms() function in WordPress. If something is bypassing this function (probably an indication of a problem), the terms will not be sorted as expected.

Can I turn off the custom term order?

Yes, just uncheck the taxonomy under Arrange Terms -> Settings.

Can feature x be added?

Maybe! Contact me: http://cgd.io/contact
