Is it possible to rearrange the order of nodes in the node tree?

    I can't seem to figure out how to do this, nor find it in the manual. Really simple - all i want to do is move a node up or down in the forum display. I.e. I have 5 forums and want to swap 2 with 4 in the display order. Is it possible? Or do I have to delete the forums and redo them?

    I currently have 5 separate forums. Do I need to make them all under a single category? Because, in the options, it lists each display value as 1.

    It's up to you how you arrange the nodes in your own forum.

    Just create additional categories and change the values to suit.

    so then its not possible if I have them all setup as different forums? I have to have one overriding category and then everything else as a separate forum?

    If you post a visual mock-up of what it is you're trying to do, I can either explain it, or if you give me access to your ACP, I can set it up for you.

    I really like how IPB implement this, rearranging node is very easy.

    So I had:

    Forum
    Forum
    Forum
    Forum
    Forum

    With no Category structure. And I wanted to rearrange the 2nd place with the 4th place. But, since it seems that they're all considered 'self-nodes', you can't actually do that.

    So i had to switch it to
    Category
    Forum
    Forum
    Forum
    Forum
    Forum

    Where in I could rearrange the order under the category.

    You can.

    Just change the display order value as I have already explained.

    It works now. Odd, I tried it before and all the default values were staying as 1, so nothing was moving.

    Thanks for the help.
