Title: Custom Profile Field - Sort Select Box/Radio Button Options

By default the options for 'Select Box' and 'Radio Button' in Custom Profile Fields cannot be sorted - they have to be reordered manually.  In situations where it is necessary to periodically add a new option like a calendar year and have the list displayed in descending order, or add a new model of an item and have the list displayed in ascending order, this can become quite time consuming.

This modification enables the ascending/descending sorting of the options for 'Select Box' and 'Radio Button' custom profile fields prior to them being saved.  There is also a 'No change' option (this is the default option) to preserve the order of the options if the Ascending or Descending sort options are not selected.

Also, and because care must be taken to not change the text when manually reordering options to ensure that user data is not lost, this mod provides a means to sort the options without any need to copy/paste/retype the text.

Thanks for the compliment.

One of the forums I manage is for owners of a camper trailer that has been in continuous production for the last 26 years and over that time the company has manufactured 22 different models - and next year they'll still be in production and they will also be releasing some new models!

Up until now I've been editing the database directly to sort the year/model fields the way I wanted after adding new options but this mod makes it a whole lot easier!

I'm going to try it to see how it works, great job ;D and by the way I leave you the translation to Latin Spanish ;) (it is valid for Es also).

Code: (.spanish_latin) [Select]
$txt['custom_edit_sort_options'] = 'Ordenar las opciones de <em>\'Cuadro de selecci&oacute;n\'/\'Bot&oacute;n de opción\'</em> en el siguiente orden:';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_noChange'] = 'Sin cambios';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_ascending'] = 'Ascendente';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_descending'] = 'Descendente';

Code: (.spanish_latin-uf8) [Select]
$txt['custom_edit_sort_options'] = 'Ordenar las opciones de <em>\'Cuadro de selección\'/\'Botón de opción\'</em> en el siguiente orden:';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_noChange'] = 'Sin cambios';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_ascending'] = 'Ascendente';
$txt['custom_edit_sort_descending'] = 'Descendente';


Regards!

Thanks - I've added the Spanish (Latin and ES) language text strings to the mod.
