Need a DISPLAY ORDER for Categories

    I can’t believe this hasn’t come up years ago… but in any taxonomy system, you need to be able to sort things in an arbitrary order that is not by alphabet, nor by ID.

    Need to add a “display sequence” string to each category.

    Thanks,
    John

  • What template tag are you using to display the taxonomy?

    +1 here.

    Okay missed what you were saying. Add a display order, such as what’s used for Pages, to taxonomies. There is a term_order column in the terms table and wp_get_object_terms supports and orderby=term_order. So just need a UI that allows that field to be populated.

    I can update data direct from sql, I just don’t want to edit my templates.

    This would require template changes?

    Yes you’d need to change the template to use wp_get_object_terms.
