Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order

Description

Order Categories and all custom taxonomies terms (hierarchically) using a Drag and Drop Sortable javascript capability. No Theme update is required the code will change the query on the fly.
If multiple taxonomies are created for a custom post type, a menu will allow to chose the one need to be sorted. If child categories (terms) are defined, those can be ordered too using the same interface.

Also you can have the admin terms interface sorted per your new sort.

This plugin is developed by Nsp-Code

I have no PHP knowledge at all, i will still be able to use this plugin?

Yes, this is the right tool for you. The plugin comes with a unique feature to update the queries on the fly and return the terms in the required order without changing any line of code. Or as an alternative you can do that manually.

I prefer to apply the sort through code, how can be done?

Include a ‘orderby’ => ‘term_order’ within your get_terms() arguments.

What taxonomies will allow me to sort?

You can sort ALL taxonomies, including the default Categories.

Is there any way i can get my admin interface to use the custom terms order?

Absolutely, the plugin can do that. In fact you can configure so only the admin will update and the front side template will display the terms as before.

There is a feature that i want it implemented, can you do something about it?

All ideas are welcome and i put them on my list to be implemented into the new versions. Anyway this may take time, but if you are in a rush, please consider a small donation and we can arrange something.

I still need more features

Consider upgrading to our advanced version of this plugin at a very resonable price Advanced Taxonomy Terms Order Order

Reviews

Works perfectly!

A lifesaver: I had created my taxonomies on WCK but the client wanted to change the order of the fields. Thanks to this little beauty, I did it in 5′. Thank you!

Only wanted to order one taxonomy, overrode multiple

Seems to be no way to select which taxonomies are or aren’t sorted by this plugin. I only ever selected a single CPT’s taxonomy, set its order, then hit update. And this overrode sorting for other taxonomies on the same CPT. Deactiviating plugin restored the order. If the admin interface had a clear UI to add (and remove) custom sorting then I would have given 5 stars.

Doesn’t work on mutisite

This plugin breaks on a mutisite installation.
Read this post for a workaround:

Works very well, intuitive, and easy to use.

I asked on the support forum for a way to organise the categories in my ecommerce pack, and this was suggested by the author. Within the space of a few minutes I installed it and had my issue sorted – all without having to read any instructions !

It WORKS, it’s intuitive and it’s easy to use.

I’m very impressed. Thank you.
