5.3 configuring custom module wigets not working
I have a custom module - Kurse (courses) with Kursdaten (Coursdates)
As you can see the coursedates are sorted by titles B1, B10, B11, B2
I addes a startdate and want to have it sorted by that value
I try to follow http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/user-guide/widgets/content-widgets-group/configuring-custom-module-widgets
But it does not seem to be working
a) sort value entered in advanced don't seem to be saved
b) sorting setting don't seem to be saved
See this screencast http://www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_module_sorting.swf
Thank you for using our services.
It turned out that this is a bug on our side - Advance Settings for hierarchical custom modules are not saved, after being changed. I logged this and we will be working on fixing it for our future releases.
Here you can find the PITS Issue: 14019.
I updated your Telerik points.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused, let me know if you have further problems connected with this.
Another one finds a bug :-)
Any chance this will be fixed in the upcomming Hotfix or at least in 5.4?
We are currently reviewing this bug and we'll try to fix it for upcoming 5.4 major release.
Thank you for your continued patience and support!
The problem is that I will have a site that will go online in March. If this is fixed in 5.4 i can wait. But if the fix won't make it then I need to programm my own widget wich will cost the client simply because this simple bug exsists.
Any change to get a commitment form Georgi and the Dev team?
The fix will be included in 5.4.
All the best,
the Telerik team
Thank's a lot for the comittment. Hope to see many more fixes and improvements in 5.4
Sorry but it seems that this has not been solved at all.
PITS reports it resolved. But look at the screenshot . As in advanced mode still not saved :-(
Please check urgently.
Further more the translation a-z a-z ist double should be a-z z-a
Hope to get some feedback her soon and some fix as well.
You can also see the anoying having to relead the page to edit stuff that more people are having.
The Advanced settings are being saved as per the PITS item. However it appears as if there is a new bug in which the "Sort items" drop down won't save the "As set in Advanced mode" setting. I have logged this in PITS here.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

At least we get another PITS. Now I only hope that this fix will make it into 6.0 because I start to get tired of hunting down bug, report then, check if they are fixed, report them, check again and test screencast and everything.
I know you have bigger things ahead with 6.0 but this is frutstrating to say the least.
Reported Jan 14th
Any commitment that this will work (really work) in 6.0 from your team?
The roadmap for 6.0 has not been finalized yet so I can't say if this is in the pipeline.
If I find out I'll follow up.
the Telerik team
Has this been fixed in the upcomming 6.0 release?
Sorry. It seems not. If I can find out anything more I'll post here.
the Telerik team
Yeah why don't you do this and I will ask again once 6.2 has been released.
I know so much stuff is new and wonderfull but its sad when problems reported are not fixed within 2 major releases. Makes you feel like - why report, nothing is going to change anyhow.
new big stuff - new bugs - look at all open PITS BUGS Thats enough for your whole team to be working on a whole year.
Is this issue on the 6.1 list?
I consulted with our Module Builder team for this bug and they said that they will do their best to fix the bug for the release of Sitefinity 6.1 version.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I hope their best is good enough. Since this is a long standing issue.
Well I updated the site from 5.4 to 6.3 and I have some questions
a) now I got 4 views sf_view_6_3.png where there used to be only two sf_view_5_4.png
b) it seems to me the sort order is not persitent www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_module_sortorder_not_persistent.swf
Any help on this?
www.telerik.com/.../pits.aspx claims that something related to the sorting (not the things above) was fixed in 6.1. However see my 6.3 screencast here www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_pits_14398.swf
You should set the dropdown to "As set in Advanced mode" then click "Advanced" and set Sort expression in the view definition. After this you can save and it is all persisted.
Otherwise on save the designer sees "By Title .." and updates the view definition, overriding your sort expression. The other way around - if you set "As set in Advanced mode" and Save then the current sort expression is saved, but that is "Title ASC" which is used to populate the dropdown when the designer is opened again and nothing is changed.
The confusion comes from the fact that the dropdown is bound to the same "Sort expression" field as the one seen in advanced and "As set in Advanced mode" does not set anything.
