Alphabetize posts in category

I have a category where I need to be able to sort the topics alphabetically. The most recent discussion I found about this was in 2016, and although several people were interested, it doesn’t look like there’s an easy way to achieve this right now. It’s the biggest disadvantage I’ve found in Discourse so far, since this is a basic option in the other forum software I’ve tried.

I’d be happy with a theme component or plugin if it won’t be introduced in core - anyone have an idea of how to make this happen?


It has been discussed several times, you can grab some info about this here:

(info is from 2019)

As far as I know, there is currently no plugin or theme component that does it on meta, but I could be wrong.

If you want to work yourself on it, it may be a starting point:


The solution that I’ve used was a topic that served as a table of contents (actually, a syllabus).

If you have a budget you should post in #marketplace.


Thanks for the heads up, and apologies for missing those more recent posts. Looks like I was using the wrong keywords in my search. Using these I’ve been able to do what I need to do!

@pfaffman I will definitely keep the marketplace in mind going forward.

Thanks again guys!
