      Schools with multiple categories would find a quick sort of categories helpful, when adding them to the list.

      Thanks,

              We are planning to adjust the drop down show only the visible categories. since we have 4 quarters in a year, we need to be able to classify every quarter's categories differently. Somewhere around second quarter, list gets long and starts confusing teachers.

              We do add this feature to our moodle.
              I've attached two patch files for the versions we have tested (1.9.2 and 1.9.4)

              You only need to modified the /moodle/course/category.php and, of course, add the string ($string['resortcategoriesbyname'] = 'Re-sort categories by name' to the moodle.php lang file.
              We put our institution strings in the moodledata/lang/en_utf8_local/ directory so it doesn't interfere with the language pack updates.

              Hope this will help.

              As you can see from MDL-14580 the course sorting algorithms are been rewritten for v 2.0.
              So some work is needed here to addjust the patch. We plan to do so after the MDL-15265 (Backport course sortorder rewrite to 1.9.x) is fixed.

              Could you post a diff to latest Moodle v1.9.13 ?
              Or posting the modified category.php would be also helpful (I can compare then).

              Thanks!

              We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
