When you go to a section such as "Edit Categories" within the administration section, you're presented with a form on top that allows you to sort items that are displayed on the page.

The form has some wonderful functionality but unfortunately, it's going to be nearly impossible for our clients to understand anything that's going on here. In particular, when they're given the option to sort on a particular table field. In this instance, they're going to have no clue what any of these table fields mean(catbar, catextra, cathide, etc).

I know I can go in and hard code more "client friendly" terms that they could understand better but we want to stay away from hard coding stuff as much as possible. Is there any other way to display some sort of special caption instead of the field name itself?

thanks in advance.

I don't think there's a simple way of doing that, as it's all database-driven, going from data-dictionary tables, but if you're after a nicer way to view/edit categories, you could have a look at:


(a demo is also available from that link)

On this page, the headings/tickboxes are extremely easy to change, and it shows the categories in an easy-to-understand tree format, similar to the customer category-tree function but with all the extra admin bits in it and links to the category edit page.
