Right now Globals are listed in alpha order in the back end.

I was wondering if it would be possible to reorder them somehow? Maybe when working under Settings > Globals, etc.?

  • Wouldn't it depend on your field type? A Matrix field can be re-ordered by clicking the + icon in the top/right of the field and dragging it somewhere else...

  • In this case I'm referring to the reordering of the global sets themselves (not the field assigned to them).

It's currently not possible to change the order in the control panel, but we might look into that for a future release. They are currently set to display alphabetically.

  • Are you also considering doing category re-ordering for a particular entry? On one site we are using categories as filters on various pages, and the re-ordering for them has to be done globally. Commented Jul 11, 2014 at 12:25
