You may use the POS to place them in order;

Go to Catalog -> Manage Categories
and change the number on the POS
to 1 as for the #1 category you want to show first on the categories box.

But if I add a new category that should be in the middle I am going to have to update lots of order numbers etc. I have had this issue in the past.

I tried setting them all to the same number e.g. '1' but this still didn't work.

Look forward to help :)

the easy solution for categories is to number them with a gap between them
i used a 10 gap
110-120-130-140-150 etc.......
(you could use 25 or anything)
that way, I could add up to 9 categories in between any categories from my initial setup...

Still, funny that it isnt done A-Z by default like most other shop scripts... guess I will just have to remember to go and sort them all out after every time I add a new category.

If you set the POS to 0 on all categories they will sort in alphabetical order.
