    Using WP Social Blogroll plug in and have 4 catagories of links. Wish to change the sort order of the catagories to put links to my blogs on top. Can go in to settings to change the sort order, now sorting alphabetically, by dragging and dropping but when I hit save the sort order goes back to alpha. Am I missing something here?

    Don’t know how this could happen.

    Which version of the plugin are you using? Which of the two different types of the plugin’s widgets are activated in your sidebar? How many of them are active?

    Could you post the URL of your blog and a complete screenshot of all your settings for the plugin?

    I am using the multi widget as I have 4 catagories to display. As far as I can see only one version is active. I’m using the 1.5.7 version of the plug in and 3.1.1 of WP. Another thing is that post view and click view options have also stopped working. It’s like the whole thing has shut itself off except the blog roll is updating.

    the url is

    Can’t seem to do a screen shot but have posted the settings to a temp page

    Thanks for the help

    I think you are really mixing something up.

    Order of the categories has nothing to do with sorting. There is only one way to determine the order of the categories. That is by drag-and-drop. By dragging and dropping you determined the category “*My Blogs” to be the first of the four categories.

    That works perfectly as I can see on your screenshot, where you also show your blogroll. The category “*My Blogs” is the first one, followed by “Blogroll”, “Pure Poker” and “Side Trips”.

    Reading your first posting of this thread, I understand that the order of the categories is exactly as you want it (correct me, if I am wrong).

    Sort order (e.g. alphabetical) determines the order of the bookmarks within each category and not the order of the categories . As you chose to activate Javascript-sorting, alphabetical sorting is overridden by the date-based order of the bookmarks.

    If you want the sort order of your bookmarks to be alphabetical within each category, disable Javascript-sorting.

    hmmm … now I see the problem. Indeed, there is a bug concerning the drag-and-drop. It does not work. Happens also on my blog.

    I’ll keep you informed and will release a bugfix within the next days.

    Thanks. The only reason My Blogs is at the top is because I put the * in front since it was sorting alphabetically otherwise My Blogs stayed in second place. Don’t know what happened since it did work at one point but I made a change and when I tried to put them back the drag and drop stopped working. Just put the astrisk in as a temp fix since it did give me what I wanted
