Add-On Type(s)



Extends the Channel entries tag to order entries by a given set of categories.

Supports all parameters and variables supported by {exp:channel:entries}.
Entries will be grouped by the categories given in the category parameter,
then ordered as set by the orderby parameter.

Currently only works with a list of categories separated by pipes. Entries
from all of these categories will be returned in the order the categories are

Example: order by date within a set of categories

  {exp:category_entries category="2|3|1" orderby="date"}
    <li>{title} {categories}{category_name}{/categories} - {entry_date}</li>

Be sure to check out my form module ProForm!

ProForm is the first and most powerful drag and drop form manager for ExpressionEngine 2.0. It’s designed to make creation and management of contact forms and other types of public forms easier for developers, content editors, and visitors - everyone who needs to interact with forms in any way.

With ProForm, one line of template code can render simple contact forms, or complex multistep forms all created easily through its drag and drop form builder UI. ProForm also gives you precise control over your forms’ markup through a full template pair - rendering a form is as easy as rendering your site’s content - just the way it should be in ExpressionEngine.

I needed to sort a long list and Low-reorder was not a option since it seems to need manual ordering in CP. This one does everythong on the fly if you just put a nice category-list in the publish area (Use Category Field) 5 stars for this easy, simple and elegant addon.
