Setting Category Display Order

by Jake Peters

There's a few different ways to set the order that categories appear on your HelpDocs.

Available Sort Orders

  • Alphabetical
    • A-Z ordering by category title
  • Created Date
    • When the category was first created (most recent first)
  • Last Updated
    • When the category was last updated (most recent first)
  • Random
    • A totally random order every time the page is loaded
  • Custom
    • You manually choose the order

Setting a Sort Order

  1. Head to SettingsBrand 
  2. Under Category Sort Order choose the order you'd like
  3. Hit Save
Most of these ordering options are applied right away. If you chose Custom ordering, you'll now see a reordering icon in the top left of the Articles table in your dashboard.

Managing Custom Category Ordering

If you selected Custom ordering for your categories, you'll get a new icon button at the top of the table in your your Content tab. Clicking that icon takes you to a page that'll let you drag and drop categories to rearrange them.

When you're finished, hit Back to apply your changes.

That sort button can be a little tricky to find, but it's there! Here's a zoomed in screenshot if you get stuck.
