My site currently uses /categories as its home page. I tried enabling fixed category positions and moved some categories, but the order of categories did not change on that page even after reloading the page.
Also, without fixed positions, I noticed that the categories are not totally ordered by the number of posts or recent postings. A couple of categories moved today with the fixed positions disabled, but one category with many posts is still at the bottom.
Is this a bug, or am I missing something important?
