As I have many many prefixes, it becomes really ugly when they can't be sorted in alphabetical order. When my moderators or myself want to add a prefix to a thread, it's ridiculous searching through dozens of prefixes to find the one we need, as I don't seem to find any way of sorting them.
Thanks for the reply Brogan, but I was looking for if there's an automatic way to just sort them alphabetically - I have more than 350 of them and editing them one by one is something I'd like to avoid.
Brogan is correct. There's no interface to sort the prefixes differently other than the display order.
It would be possible to sort it differently via a code edit or add-on, however.
I can understand the awkwardness of your situation though. Seeing as all of your prefixes were imported using a custom script written by someone () so it's not like you had the opportunity to enter the display_order properly.
Well I see the point of NOT having such an option, as you would imagine someone that enters the prefixes one by one can also control their display order, but for all imports from vbulletin like mine, I have to go edit them one by one.
