how to re-order Categories in sidebar? (2 posts)

    Hey all... just installed WordPress this week and am really enjoying it!

    However, I noticed my Categories are listed in the sidebar in what appears to be alphabetical order. Seems as though there's no option to customize the display order myself, though that seems unusual. Is there a trick to this? I downloaded the "mycategoryorder" plugin, but haven't been able to get it to work in 2.2.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    The answer might hinge on what theme you are using and if you are using Widgets_SubPanel.

    Normally, the listing of categories is handled by a theme's sidebar.php file and utilizes the template tag, wp_list_categories().

    If you do report back, please provide the name of your theme (and a link to that theme if possible).
