Category Sorting

Post by an.d » Thu May 24, 2018 4:39 pm

Instead of sorting by id it would be better if you added a column called sortorder and used that to sort the columns of the categories. That way when ever you change the sort order you don't have to go back in and correct all of the FAQs that are now in the wrong category. That should be a simple fix and not require a lot of change in the code or the database.

It would also allow you to do drag and drop sorting. As it is, sorting categories is a little cumbersome.
