Description

On new installations on test sites, I have seen the correct order for listing of files/folders in the code editor.

ie:

  • important files
  • folders
  • files in the root.

However, in my installation, I don't get the same order.

Example screenshot attached.

readme.txt and composer.json should be lower in the list.

Thanks for the report!

Looking at get_plugin_files() used to display the tree, the default order is:

  • The main plugin file.
  • The rest of the files, in alphabetical order.

This appears to match what I'm seeing on a clean install:

query-monitor.php
assets 
classes 
collectors 
composer.json 
dispatchers 
output 
readme.txt 
wp-content 

Does the issue still happen with all plugins disabled and a default theme activated?

#24049 is a related ticket, but I can't reproduce that one either in current trunk, appears to be fixed in [41806].

I am getting

query-monitor.php
assets (folder)
classes (folder)
collectors (folder)
dispatchers (folder)
output (folder)
wp-content (folder)
composer.json
readme.txt

on the Sandbox test site on a clean install.

Which seems different from yours but seems most natural but different from yours.

On my personal site, I used the health check plugin and entered the troubleshoot mode, but still am getting the same result as the screenshot.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Looking at this again with Theme Editor and Twenty Nineteen on Windows, the order is indeed a bit random, apparently a mix of sorting by extension and name:

style.css
functions.php
print.css
style-editor-customizer.css
style-editor.css
style-rtl.css
js (folder)
postcss.config.js
package-lock.json
package.json
404.php
archive.php
classes (folder)
comments.php
footer.php
header.php
image.php
inc (folder)
index.php
page.php
search.php
single.php
template-parts (folder)
print.scss
sass (folder)
style-editor-customizer.scss
style-editor.scss
style.scss
readme.txt

style.css and functions.php are at the top, as expected, but the rest of the list could indeed be sorted in a more logical order.
