Hi all - wondering where I can fix my category ordering. I can’t find it under admin settings
Then you will see this move/drag icon
Other option is just edit category > settings > position
Not exactly. You need to set the admin setting
fixed category positions first for this to work.
(@neil, should we be automagically setting this to true when someone attempts to set a category order in the UI?)
Bulk Select button and column disappears on /categories page when logged in
How about this - show the position box in the edit menu, with a
fa fa-lock and text saying this?
Manual category ordering is disabled. Click to enable.
Clear what’s actually happening, a clear action to take as opposed to magic, and certainly less clicks than going and setting the setting.
That would be a good PR for you to work on, if you want to.
(Versus, say, lots of experimental UI that wasn’t quite what I had in mind ;))
Ah, I just noticed we have this copy on the Settings page for category edit:
Categories will be displayed in order of activity. To control the order of categories in lists, enable the “fixed category positions” setting.

sorry, this is pretty poor usability …
(I geuss there is no quoting capability either?)
Works fine… ? What are you struggling with in quoting?
Here’s my screenshot …
… well, I have a screenshot, but the forum won’t let me upload it. So let me try to describe to you what I’m seeing …
Under your post I have the following options:
- link (chain)
- bookmark (pennant)
- Reply <- button
I see no quote control.
Since I am not allowed to upload files as a newbie, should I assume I’m not allowed to quote others either? Or is there a less discoverable quoting widget something that I haven’t found?
No, you can. Just either use the mouse to select the text you want to quote, or click reply and click the button in the editor.
Or use j or k to use keyboard navigation and when you are on the post you want to quote press q
The first toolbar button in the editor. Try it out! In addition to what @cpradio said, select what you want to quote with your finger or mouse.
