How does one change the order of the categories listed by the Categories Widget?
I've seen this post www.sitefinity.com/.../reorder-categories but unfortunately I'm not quite sure what actually needs to be done... Is it not as simple as exposing a "SortOrder" property in the widget itself?
In Sitefinity widgets you can sort your items in your widgets by any field you want. Here is a sample video how to perform sorting by a custom field (priority) of some new items (video).
Thank you very much for your video, it was very informative. Unfortunately I can't seem to find a similar property in the Categories Widget - pardon me if I'm missing it, but is the same thing possible with this widget?
Correct, the Category widget cannot be set to display your categories in specific order. I have added a feature request as I believe this could be valuable feature to our product. Here is a feedback item:
When planning for releases, we are always going through the feature requests in the portal and take decision based on their votes.Regards,
Hopefully this feature makes it into a future update.
