Can I change the order of categories and fields?


Categories will display in alphanumerical order by default. If you wish to show them in a particular order, you can place numbers or letters in front of the category name. For example:

01 Racing bikes
02 Cargo bikes 
03 Mountain bikes
04 City bikes

For more information on creating categories, see our dedicated guide: Category configuration.

Tip: use a two-digit naming convention such as 01, 02, 03... 10, 11, 12 etc. This will help avoid unwanted patterns such as 1, 10, 11, 2, 3, 4, etc. 


The order fields appear, in the entry form, can be managed in several ways, the most popular being 'drag-and-drop' in the Form editor.

Drag and drop fields

Alternatively, each field can be edited and its field order value can be manually changed. This feature can be handy if you know the order values of other fields the current field is positioned with. Essentially, a field with a smaller order value will be positioned above a field with a higher order value. For more information, see our guide: Field configuration.
