categories do not alphabetize
My categories do not display alphabetically. I’ve noticed in other threads here that some users categories DO display alphbetically. I don’t understand why it’s one way for some & another way for others.
In another thread, someone suggested this as a solution to the problem of getting categories to appear alphabetically in a sidebar: Here is the function call that I use…
<?php list_cats(0,”,’name’,”,”,true,0,1,1,1); ?>
Can someone tell me whether this will do for me what I need? And also, into which template do I insert it & where within the template? Or is it inserted via control panel? Is there an easier way to do this?
Try this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/22801 for sorting categories within your post, but for the template tags:
<?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name'); ?>
<?php list_cats(FALSE, ' ', 'name'); ?>
I think you are using the old 1.2 version usage of the template tag.
What version of WordPress are you running? I ask because there was a bug in list_cats with 1.5 that was resolved in later versions.
Kafkaesqui: I believe I’m running 1.5.1.
Lorelle, sorry for the confusion I introduced my not being clear about what I wanted. I want my categories to display alphabetically in my sidebar. I don’t want to sort POSTS alphabetically within categories.
And on a diff. subject, Lorelle (since you’re an expert on displaying images in WP), I’m having a helluva problem getting links to display images. All my sidebar links containing amazon jpgs display fine. But any images located on my host server & other externally linked images in my sidebar links do not display (3 in all). All the images within my posts are displaying fine.

I had started using 1.5 and found my categories didn’t alphabetize. I was advised that 1.5.1 fixed that, and apparently it did. Download 1.5.1 and I assume it will help you.
Sorting alphabetically and hiding empty categories at the same time is not pheasable.
<?php list_cats(0,'','name','','',true,0,1,1,1); ?>
<?php list_cats(0,'','name','','',true,0,1,0,1); ?>
David: Don’t think you read my msg. I DO have 1.5.1 running. And categories don’t alphabetize.
Jcraveiro: I don’t have any empty categories & never will. So I’m not worried about hiding them. So is there a way I can use code to display categories alphabetically?
