Note that this DOES work. The issue is the instructions are wrong.

sort_method=”SortCatFld::Sort” is the correct usage. You absolutely need the undersecorel

Running MT 4.21, I’ve got the plugin installed, and have added the sort_method attribute. I can see the sort interface, but there is no “save changes” button as described. I’ve tried making changes to the sort order, then going to the plugin settings and using the “save changes” button there, but still my changes are not preserved. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks!

Please note that there is a new version of this plugin available at the author’s website (Version 1.02). You can download it here.

Here is a template module that enables you to sort entry categories as well: http://pastie.org/366310.

I’d liked to implement it into the plugin itself, but as my Perl skills are… let’s say: limited… :)

That does NOT work for me. I use Version 1.02 and I just would like to sort folders. I don’t need to sort categories. But in Manage Folders is just a link “Sort Categories” and no link “Sort Folders”.

What did I wrong? Has anybody some experiences with that?

I don’t think this plugin works with MT 5 pro. I followed the directions, downloaded version 1.02, fixed the typo in the instructions. It works to sort the categories in the admin pages, but not on the public-facing site. My template tag looks like this:

And I get this error:

Error in <mtSubCategories> tag: Error sorting categories: Can’t call method "order_number" on an undefined value

Which is really too bad. If anyone knows how to get this to work in MT5, please let me know.

I tried version 1.11 in MT 5.02 and it worked.

(The second link under “SortCatFld” is the download.)

While doing some important thing sorting out of files and other documents are difficult things. With the help of such plugins we can arrange them easily and pick them up according to how we arrange. I think everyone have to try this one. Top Builders in Kochi
