    Hi, does anybody know if there’s any possibility to sort by categories and files?
    I Think by default it is sorted by id.

    Hi Toah,

    Thanks for checking out the plugin 🙂

    The downloads are sorted by date, if you like you could adjust the dates of your downloads so that they appear to be sorted alphabetically.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers mate,

    I found Simple Custom Post Order ( useful in manually sorting downloads, you just drop and drag to have them in the desired order, not quite as awesome as an auto sort feature, but close enough considering how well “Better File Download” has made my job easier

    You can sort via a single category or multiply categories in desired order you put on your Page


    thanks for the hint to that plugin.
    smooth is different, but in the result for the user it is what i’m looking for.

    I was a little early with my answer. With the plugin “Simple Custom Post Order” you can adjust the order of the files.
    Unfortunately, the order of the sub-categories can not be adjusted (it has no effect).

    @ndhaddon Is it possible that you can still add an alphabetical sorting option to your plugin for files and categories (sub-categories)?



    @toah @ndhaddon

    Using SCPO you can sort the categories by manually placing the category short code in your page ie

    [download_category category=”cars1″]

    [download_category category=”cars2″]

    [download_category category=”cars3″]

    Then if you filter that category in your admin area then you can drag the files to alphabetical order

    Ok, thank you for the tip. I had already tested it and that works.
    But the manual effort as an admin is back: is there a new category, I would have to insert it manually by shortcode.

    I had the hope when I insert the top category, that the sub categories can be sorted automatically.



    I also need a solution for categories and subcategories to be displayed alphabetically.
