It appears that the vocabularies sort their terms in alphabetical order. Is there a way to specifically set the order of the terms?
This is a common pattern, but not required. If sorting is interesting, there are a couple of reasonable approaches: 1. Make the vocabulary responsible for the ordering. This is reasonable when there's one sensible way to sort the values. 2. Make the widget sort the data. This means writing new widgets, and getting them hooked up properly. The vocabulary pretty much requires a specific interface at this point to act as a marker for widget selection. This is better if there are multiple reasonable ways to sort the values, especially if the user might want to switch between sort orders in the UI. Clearly, the first option is easier. I don't know if anyone has bothered to use the second option. The same pattern options apply to sources as well as to vocabularies. -Fred -- Fred L.
