Hmm... I can't figure out how to change the order of the links that are displayed in the "Information" content category. Mine are displayed alphabetically, so maybe the option is not built in. The User Manual only addresses how to change the name of the content category, and the page editor allows a page to be added or removed, but is there a way to change the display order?

Also, I want to add a link to the "Tell a Friend" to this content category. How is this accomplished?

Open shopcms.asp, locate :

strsql="select distinct content.messagetype,content.contentid,content.nurllink,content.cdateadded,content.cNewsStartDate,content.cNewsEndDate from content left outer join concatcategories on content.contentid = concatcategories.intcatalogid"

Change to :

strsql="select distinct content.other1,content.messagetype,content.contentid,content.nurllink,content.cdateadded,content.cNewsStartDate,content.cNewsEndDate from content left outer join concatcategories on content.contentid = concatcategories.intcatalogid"

Then also :

strsql = strsql & " ORDER BY content.messagetype"

to change to :

strsql = strsql & " ORDER BY content.other1"

This give you ability to control the ordering by using other1 field from content field. Set the order sequence by put numbering in other1 field.

Then see the result.
