Sort Categories Alphabetically

I’d like to sort the categories alphabetically in the dropdown menu under the text box when someone posts a question. Currently, its sorted by creation of categories and not alphabetically.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks – I’ll get that done today and let you know how it goes.

    I requested this before, but for the next release, if we could have the followIng features that would be great:

    1. Admin notification of new questions and answers.

    2. Group or user notification when new questions are posted (differently from how it’s currently done). For example, if I have expert users in a field that my users ask questions on, I’d like to send a notification to the expert users that a new question is posted and available for answering.

    3. Change the “click here to subscribe/unsub” link for questions to a checkbox because if someone clicks on follow the question before they submit their answer they’ll lose the answer they’ve typed out. the checkbox will keep that from happening and make it a little easier.

    4. Maybe a dashboard widget of recent questions and how many answers they have??

    If youd like me to move the above info to a new post, let me know!

    Hello epijunky,

    If you have any difficulty dealing with it, I have attached the edited file here for your convenience. Replace wp-plugins/qa/core/template-tags.php with the attached file. Also do not forget to thank Mohanjith!

    Now all those suggestions make sense, thanks!

    Like you said, if you could move it to the feature request and feedback section of the forum, we might be able to get in other peoples inputs as well. And once it gets some feedback, I can push it as a feature request and make it official.

    Please start a new thread here:

    Thanks for being an awesome member!
