For some reason, certain categories don't display in the correct order in the top category menu, but instead appear after the list of the other categories. Any thoughts?

I've double-checked store view, etc, and have reindexed/cleared the cache to death.

Edit: by "correct order" I mean the order I've set in the backend by clicking and dragging.

I think by default they are ordered based on their category ID. If you wanna arrange it alphabetically you can reorder it in admin side (catalog > categories) by dragging.

  • I've done that, and it works for the bulk of the categories, but for some reason there's a handful of categories that aren't ordered correctly.

  • Can you elaborate a little on that? Reordering by dragging on admin side, clearing cache and re-indexing usually works.

  • Man, yeah, I'm not really sure what would be helpful -- apologies for the lack of info. I usually don't have any problems just reordering/clearing cache/reindexing/etc, but for some reason this just isn't working.
