Sorting Categories within Categories

(Chris S.) #1

I’m having trouble trying to figure out how to sort categories within categories (similar to what they’re doing here: Community - Codecademy Discuss). I’d have to have a few subcategories “pinned” to the top of the category page, but when I create a subcategory it doesn’t seem to do that. Is there a special way of doing this? I understand how to sort categories on the main page, but can’t figure out how to sort them within category pages.


That is done by the category settings -

You can also sort them manually by going to your admin settings and looking for

fixed category positions

If checked, you will be able to arrange categories into a fixed order. If unchecked, categories are listed in order of activity.

fixed category positions on create

If checked, category ordering will be maintained on topic creation dialog (requires fixed_category_positions).

You can then reorder them via the categories page and where you create a new category you can reorder them

Interesting…I don’t have that checkbox.



what version are you on?

If your not sure you can see from your admin area or view source of your forum

I just signed up about a week ago, so I’d imagine whatever the latest version is.

I did get it to show up though! Refreshed it a bunch of times and eventually it showed up. :slight_smile: Thanks for your help!
