Connections Business Directory Extension Custom Category Order 1.1.1 GPL Version
Another plugin that you might find useful for your directory is the Connections Business Directory Extension Custom Category Order 1.1.1. This is a plugin that lets you customize the order of your categories in your directory, instead of using the default alphabetical order. This way, you can highlight the most important or relevant categories for your visitors and make your directory more user-friendly and organized.
The Custom Category Order plugin is very easy to use. All you need to do is install it and activate it on your WordPress site, and then go to the Connections > Categories page. There, you will see a new input field where you can enter the order number for each category. The order number can be any positive number, and the lower the number, the higher the category will appear in the list. You can also use the auto-mapping feature that matches the order numbers based on the category names.
The Custom Category Order plugin respects the parent/child relationship of the categories, so you can order them hierarchically. For example, if you have a parent category with an order number of 1, and a child category with an order number of 2, the child category will appear after the parent category in the list. If you have any unordered categories, they will follow after the ordered categories in the default alphabetical order.
The Custom Category Order plugin works with any theme or widget that supports Connections Business Directory. It also adds a new column to the admin category table, so you can easily see the order that has been given to each category.
PS: This plugin is updated regularly.
