Currently my catagories are shown in alphabetical order. Does anyone know how to specify the order shown on a catagories page?

Here is my example:
http://www.projectgreentag.com/shopdisplaycategories.asp

As you can see it doesn't make sense to have the "sales" picture where it is currently. I would like make 1 verticle column of catagories (with thumbnails) in the order I specify.

Thanks in advance.

In site setup, change the option:
xsortcategories

to whatever columns you want to order things on.

eg you might change it to:
catextra,catdescription

and then put values like
A001
A001-002
etc in catextra
remember that catextra etc are text columns so "2" comes *after* "10", so use alphas or put hyphens in and pad them with zeroes so that they're not seen as numbers and so that they order like you'd expect.

eg:
001-001
001-001-001
001-002
001-002-001
001-002-002

Simon, that worked perfect! thanks.

One more question - I changed the order and now I'm getting white shades like the green boxes aren't sized correctly. Any suggestions?
