    Is it possible to change the order in which custom fields appear? I can't seem to figure this out.

    Not sure where you are wanting to change the order but look at Steve's solution here:

    I don't think this quite does what I need it to.

    Basically, I'd like something that lets me add a "Position" value in the db to each Custom Field. Do you happen to know if anything like this exists?

    I need this as well. It doesn't seem to matter in which order I add custom fields in a post. The order that the custom fields display in seems to be randomly generated.

    There is one workaround that I think will work and that is to name the custom fields in alphabetical or numerical order ie. Image 1, Image 2, Image 3 etc. I know this wont work in all situations but may in some. I don't think there is an option available yet to do this... maybe in the next upgrade?
