Can I change the order of categories and fields?

Categories

Categories will display in alphabetical 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

Example 1: Category naming convention

Example 2: Category order from the entry form

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. 

Fields

The order fields appear, in the entry form, can be managed in several ways, the most popular being 'drag-and-drop' when Configuration mode is turned on. Alternatively, each field can be edited and it's '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.
