Organizing Category order (5 posts)

    My categories show up in alphabetical order on my blog.
    Is there a way I can specify the order I want them in?

    You can use the:

    orderby=<em>name or id</em>

    parameter and can either set it to display alphabetically or by ID number. It must already be set to name as ID is the default (i think)

    Hope it helps. :)

    Sure does...

    Next question is can you change the ID number once it is designated?

    How?

    Thanks BPartch

    I use the category order plugin I found here:
    http://www.coppit.org/code/

    The only problem I have with it, I started using after I setup my blog and had over 100 entries.

    Moving one item up or down to the catgeory it belonged under is painful slow as it has to be done one line at a time.

    My blog is form mails of town, state updates for my drive-in movie theatre listings.

    So basically I would have to spend several minutes moving Memphis so it is under Tennessee. And so forth.
