Order of top-level items when editing a structure

posts: 2 United States


I have set up a web site using version 16.2, and am having a bit of a problem with structures. When I try to edit a structure, the top-level items are always ordered alphabetically by page name rather than the current structure order. This doesn't happen to sub-levels, they remain in their current order. The toc of the structure page displays them in the correct order. This must be due to some configuration setting, because I tried reproducing on the 16.x demo site, and there the items stay in their structure order. I've tried comparing all the sort and ordering settings I can find between my site and the demo site, and they all appear the same. I do have sefrul enabled, but I tried disabling and the behavior didn't change. Is there a configuration setting that would cause this behavior? Any suggestions of other things to check would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Ross Oliver

IIRC this "alphabet sorting" issue was fixed recently, maybe it will be released in 16.3?

Check the commits to the 16.x branch on https://sf.net if you find it there...
