Tag or Category term_group Order

Description

This plugin is intended as an aid to theme and plugin developers. It changes the term_group field value in a core WordPress database table

($wpdb->terms). So, please be aware of the risks involved and always back up your site before activating a new plugin.

The purpose of the plugin is to allow sorting of tags or categories based on ‘term_group’. This allows queries that

fetch terms to use ‘term_group’ as a sort order.

This can be used to display tags or categories in a semantic way in archives and individual posts.

For example,

If we have three groups of categories for size, color and object, then categories displayed as

Small, Green, Table

Big, Blue, Chair

are more readable than

Table, small, green

Chair, big, blue

Screenshots
