Ordering both default and custom fi (1 post)

    Once again, thanks for the great plugin. I would like to express the only other feature request I came upon so far besides the Customizable or Simplified Image Upload Form that Amir kindly already replied to.

    At the moment it's only possible to affect the order in which custom fields are displayed below the default fields. It would be useful to be able to customize the order in which all fields are displayed. This is one of the endless possibilities how fields might be wanted to be ordered on a site:

    1. Featured image
    2. Title
    3. A custom field
    4. The default text and HTML area

    At the moment the only possible order for the very same fields is:

    1. Title
    2. The default text and HTML area
    3. Featured image
    4. A custom field

    A quick workaround would be to let users order around the items under Edit Custom Post Type > Display Sections to enable the default fields to be in a customized order in relation to each other, albeit not yet in relation to custom fields. A full-fledged solution could be accomplished by adding a section in the Edit Custom Post Type to be able to order around both the enabled default fields and Custom Field Groups.

    Seeing the well-functioning user interface on the Edit (Field) Group page, making the UI of the full-featured solution would be very doable. The part I think might need more effort is ensuring that WordPress respects the user-chosen settings.
