Starting my library career as a page, I agree, I hate when things aren’t sorted in alphabetical order!
This has been a long-standing area of discussion with the forum’s creators. Right now, the forums sort by latest activity. As our web dev works on manually importing old content, that causes new activity which changes the sub-category ordering.
You could select to manually order all categories instead. But you can’t select to just order sub-categories. That is currently considered to be too niche of an area.
Another option would be to consider moving all these topics under the #conferences-events category and then just tagging them instead of using subcategories. The tags filter isn’t as obvious, you must use the drop down when you’re in the category (shown below). But you can have the tags sort in alphabetical order.
What do you think? Vote using the poll:
- Obvious sub-categories, but out of order (current method)
- No sub-categories, but Alphabetical Tags
- Other, please reply
