[resolved] Feature Request: change display order of fields on NGG's manage gallery page. (2 posts)

    Thank you for this wonderful plugin to NGG.

    After using this I have come across a feature that would be very useful.

    Manual ordering of the fields for when they display under NGG's manage gallery page.

    For example, I've added 4 custom fields. After adding data I've realized I need a 5th one. But, I want this new field to display between #2 and #3 when I manage a gallery.

    I imagine this would be a global feature as it would be way too complex to code for individual galleries (at least to begin with).

    For display it would be as simple as adding " ORDER BY custom_fields_display_order" or something similar.

    On the manage fields page it could be a simple drop down where the page would update each change of order or it could be fully dynamic like WP's custom menu's are.

    Do you think this would be difficult to do? (I'm looking into it myself but I'm only beginning to understand how it all works.)

    Hi samavay
    Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you find the plugin useful.
    I think adding a way to order the fields is a very good idea. I will add it to my list of things to do.
