On a complex website like mine, there are many categories, each of which has a Blog, Blog Article, Article, and Edit Article EasyLayout. For the backend list of layouts to be more organised, it would be helpful if it was possible to move layouts up and down - like you can in the Joomla Content, Category, Modules, Plugins, Menu and Template Manager - to have all layouts for a particular category together rather than all over the place. While it might be normal to create all templates for one category at the same time, this is not always the case. What is more, a user might decided to redo a layout, after other layouts for a different category have been created, without - at least at first - deleting the original layout. Then that new template will be right on top, while the rest of the layouts for that category are further down. If you want to make it really fancy, than you could even introduce sorting and filtering like you can everywhere else in the Joomla backend.

That will allow me to sort by name in whatever column I'm choosing, however, to me it would make far more to sort the layouts in the same order as chosen in the menu. It would be good if EasyLayouts allowed users to sort the layouts in whatever way they choose, just like it is possible with menu items, categories, articles, modules, plugins etc.

You can use the 'sort by' drop down to change the order the items are displayed

Yes, indeed. After I posted this ticket, I actually "discovered" the search tools feature for EasyLayouts items. :D I still would like to have the ability to manage the order in which those items are being displayed.

You can sort the list by clicking most of the column heading and you can filter by layout type using the 'search tools' - I think that is what you are looking for?

Demo Site

You can access our demo at https://demo.easylayouts.net.

You can easily switch EasyLayouts off and on again via a special module on the demo site and can also access the backend to experiment with the layouts. The demo resets every hour so bear in mind that the demo looks a bit odd that someone else may have changed the layouts before you viewed the page.
