Ah, someone with the exact same question I have. Does anyone know how to change the order in which the LINK CATEGORIES are displayed? There’s clearly not a way to do it from the links admin page, so is there a way to change the code to accomplish this?
You can work-around this limitation by adding SPACES in front of the list category names. The more spaces, the higher the category.
For example, if you put two spaces in front of a category name called “Recipes”, then put one space in front of a category called “Friends”. The “SPACE/SPACERecipes” category will now appear in the list above ” SPACEFriends”.
And no, the spaces won’t show up on your page 😉
Hmm… On second look, I’m not even sure how this could be done with the category tag. The list_cats tag only allows you to sort categories by name or ID number. It doesn’t allow for sorting by personal preference as the SPACE method does.
Could you explain your method of sorting categories by tag?
2fargon: Ohhhh, gotcha! 😉 Looks like we were each just referring to different types of sorting. I thought maybe you had figured out a way to sort by preference using the tags. Your way is certainly best for sorting by name, and I think my method may be the only way to sort by preference.
