Description

Greetings,

During wp-admin/post.php, the sorting of categories on the right seems to be id

I cannot see any option to let the system sort the categories by alpha

Am I missing something ?

note: I have already seen http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/list_cats - but

am using the latest version from the svn

Cheers, Kishore.

It was actually sorted by category_count. Agreed that it should be sorted alphabetically.

May I put this forward for the easiest patch ever?
