Hello,

I'm testing Kunena 3.0 on a Joomla 3.1.1 test installation before going live. My question is about Reordering options in Kunana. This is the structure I've in Kunena:

1. - Laptops (section)
1.1 - Dell (category)
1.1.1 - Precision (sub-category)
1.1.2 - Inspiron (sub-category)
1.1.3 - XPS (sub-category)

1.2 - HP (category)
1.2.1 - Elitebook (sub-category)
1.2.2 - Probook (sub-category)

1.3 - Lenovo (category)
1.3.1 - Thinkpad (sub-category)
1.3.2 - Ideapad (sub-category)

2. - Tablets (section)
2.1...
......

These items were created in the order that is shown above. What I want to achieve is following:
1. Move "Inspiron" before "Precision".
2. Move "Lenovo" before "HP".

I've explored enough in backend but can't find an option to do it. Does anyone know how I can get this done?

Thank you.

Okay, I've found how this is to be done. It was a little tricky though.

Apologies.

Hi Everyone,

I have been searching for a while now, but haven't found a solution as yet pertaining to Kunena 3.0.1

I am using Joomla 3.1 with Kunena 3.0.1.

I have created numerous sections/categories in my forum layout, however would like to manually re-organize them. I know previously you could edit the order in which they appear in the front-end, but it doesn't seem as obvious a solution as previous.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

This is one of the cool features of Joomla's new Bootstrap templating system. The "trick" in J! 3.1 is to drag and drop the categories from one place to another. Yes, it's that easy! :woohoo:

The following screenshot shows you the widget you need to select with your mouse to perform the drag-and-drop action:

Fantastic! Thank you Sozzled. Took me a while and then noticed that I need to click on the Organize by this field before the Widget became selectable.

I am looking for a simple way to reorder the forums under a category. It looks like in older versions you could simply move them up in down in the categories manager where you add and delete them from the list. It apparently sorts by ID number. Is there a way to move them up and down so on the frontend they display how you want them. Example of Forums out of order because I was entering them in randomly and now I want them in the proper sequence.

Forum 1
Forum 3
Forum 2

Ok, I figured this out, its not a Kunena issue, its a Joomla 3.0 newbie issues! :) So you have to activate the sorting feature in Joomla 3 by clicking on the top of the sort Colum to activate it and then its drag and drop to move items to a new place in the order.

Sorry for the confusing post! Hopefully this may help others who get tripped up!

G'day, everstar, and welcome to the forum.

Correct. That is the way that Kunena category management as always worked. It works this way, too, in K 3.0. :)

everstar wrote: It apparently sorts by ID number.

Sections, categories and sub-categories (let us use the correct names) will be listed in your forum index in the order that they were created unless you change the arrangement in the Kunena Category Manager.

Yes, there is, but it depends on what version of Jooma you are using. Your Kunena configuration report will provide us with that information.

Hi there,

seemed to be a simple task but i havent found a solution for this topic:

how can i sort (sub)categories manually? if i add a new (sub)categorie it is placed at the bottom (propably ID based). but how can i get it to be shown for i.e. on the 2nd place?

i searched the whole kunena config/wiki/goolge but no luck.

a quick answer highly appreciated. thanks in advance! :)

In Kunena -> Category Manager, click on the little highlighted icon, then you can drag the Categories around as you please.
