    Hey there! Does anyone know how to change the order of the Blog Categories in the blog menus?

    I've tried Appearance > Layout Editor > Blog Browse Page > Blog Categories

    I thought I'd struck gold first try, but all it let's me do it change the title of the block, not the order that the Categories are shown.

    So I worked my way backwards

    Appearance > Menu Editor > Blog (Main/Quick/Gutter)

    Plugins > Blogs Plugin > Categories

    Still no love. Any clue how to change the order that the Blog Categories appear in?

    Hi Liz,

    Meanwhile V6, don't feel lonely, I have a simple clue for you how to change the order of your Blog Categories.

    I am sharing with you my solution, just add in your blog plugin before the categories' title a number, like: "1. My Art, 2. My Diaries and so on", then the categories should be sorted by the numbers.

    In addition of a solution I have a good news, as it works also with the other SE v5 plugins (Event, Group...) Isn't that great ? don't Thank me but SE for allowing it that.

    Have a great week-end.
