In HWDMediaShare, the categories are managed by the administrator in the Joomla Category Manager. Categories are a hierarchical tree structure, which means the administrator can define subcategories, and organize the categories in any order. The order defined in the category manager will be used when displaying the categories in the website.

This documentation is written for Joomla 3, and refers to the HWDMediaShare package that is compatible with Joomla 3.

Visit the Categories Manager from the HWDMediaShare component menu.

Ensure that the list of categories is ordered by the first column. 

Drag and Drop Ordering

To change the ordering of categories, follow this process:

  1. Locate the category you wish to move
  2. Place the cursor over the black Ordering icon on the left of the category name (see screenshot below)
  3. Press and hold the right mouse button
  4. Drag the category to the new location in the list
  5. Release the mouse button

The new ordering should now be saved.

It is important to note that you can only drag and drop categories within the same category level.
