I think you want to be able to move around the buttons in the menu, correct?

Currently, there isn't a way to do this with the addon buttons because they are added automatically and usually in alphabetical order

There's no actual alphabetical sorting taking place. The addon's menu.php files are processed in alphabetical order of the addon's name, and the buttons are added to the screen in that order. Within an addon the order in the menu array is kept.

LoL, I meant alphabetical order based on the addon's folder name

the "sortorder" in my roster is as follows:

public delete
reputation
itemsets
guildbank (categurized)
spellbooks
max resists
recipe
siggen
memberlog
bookworm

you can have a look at it via my site-button. this is why i said it looks randomized ;) :D

Then I don't know then

How about this?
The order is whatever order php scans the addon directories for menu.php and adds them to the array for display

Just an FYI from the php manual regarding readdir function:

Returns the filename of the next file from the directory. The filenames are returned in the order in which they are stored by the filesystem.


If you wanted them in alphabetical order, in the lib/menu.php file for the makeAddonList function you could change:

Code: Select all

        $lCount 
0//link count
 


to:

Code: Select all

        $lCount 
0//link count
        
asort($addons);
 


The function you use can pretty much be sort, asort, arsort or rsort .. etc as the keys don't seem to make any difference inside the function.

thanks! that really helped out; I am studying the different types of readdir sorting since I know little to nothing about php, but this helped tremendously as I'm now able to put them in a reasonable order.
