Manage categories - OMP

Hi
May I suggest that you make it possible to change the order of the categories. For instance I would like to sort my categories in alphabetical order, so if I just could move each category up and down it would be possible.

Hi @nef,

Thanks for the suggestion – this has been implemented and will be included in OMP 1.2:

Hi @asmecher and @nef

For some reason that I don’t know, my OMP is ignoring the ordering.
“Statistic” is a good example.
Inside database:

select ca.seq, ca.path, cs.setting_value as name from categories ca
join category_settings cs on (ca.category_id = cs.category_id and cs.locale = ‘en_US’ and setting_name = ‘title’)
order by ca.seq;
±-----±-----------------------±-----------------------+
| seq | path | name |
±-----±-----------------------±-----------------------+
| 1 | cienciasbiologicas | Biological sciences |
| 2 | cienciashumanas | Human sciences |
| 3 | cienciainformacao | Information science |

Hi @asmecher

Some news?

Best regards,

Hi @Tarcisio_Pereira,

Can you try applying one of the three patches listed at Fix category sequence · Issue #1802 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub? All are equivalent.
