Well if it retains what you had it at last, it'd do that...

Humm... Must be new in RC3?

Looks like I win the Arantor prize since he likes my idea?
:)
I have been truly inspired by the SUGGESTIONS as I sit on my throne and contemplate the wisdom imposed upon me.

Arantor

No, it's not new. It's simply that if the idea mentioned earlier were added - for it to remember where you were before, it'd then be able to default to having oldest first as you wanted.

I like the idea of having it remember, I just remember the whole sortable thing being a quick hack into it, I never thought to have it actually remember the setting.

Maybe this should reduce the column width from 32 to 22 (for example) percent?

Would be nice to have this feature for RC4.

It sure was handy in RC3.  8)

I loved this in RC2 and have just jumped to RC4, but sadly it's only updated to RC3

Please, pretty please, pretty please with bells on, tweak it for RC4

What Arantor said applies to all mods, so you'd know. Can you please remove it?

Arantor, This is your thanks for work done on adapting mod to RC4, which you could not do! Changes there's not much, if you downloaded the file, you could see them.

Just wanted to help people who need this mod, and which are not good at programming. In the installer has not changed any of the copyrights.

Thank you so much!

P.S. Sorry for the bad english, I'm from Russia.

Arantor

Yes, that's my thanks for your modifying and redistributing files you do not have legal permission to do. And it's nothing to do with whether I *could* or not, I'm more than capable of modifying it. I just chose not to do so.

The only parties that have any permission to redistribute the files are 1: custom.simplemachines.org and 2: live627.com - nowhere else, which includes attachments here.

Additionally, files provided here are not checked by the Customizer team for security which means every attachment is potentially a security risk.

the simplest solution is most likely the right one

Arantor

Well, if the current maintainer (Robbo) finds time to do so, or the person I gave development rights to (live627) releases the updated version I did that had the ability to remember sort order, maybe.

But I as the original author won't (since I don't need it, and I'd note it was on arantormods.com, scheduled to be updated until the **** hit the fan), and I won't permit anyone other than the officially listed maintainer or live627 to release versions of it.

Offtop: Arantor, you are a fanatic! Fixated on any "rights " and not paying any attention to the help. I feel sorry for you...

P.S. This post is all exactly will remove, but ...: If anyone needs an adapted version of a this mod, write me PM

Arantor

Offtopic: you are actually rude for not bothering to ask first. Had you actually asked me first, there was a reasonable chance I'd have said yes.

Arantor, sorry, but since I do not much speak English, I was easier to lay out a mod for people directly in this thread. If you will need a corrected file install.xml, to identify my edits, I can send.

P.S. Something went flood ... I no longer write.

Arantor

I'm well aware of the edits you made, since I'm quite capable of comparing them to my own (given that I do development as a day job, such tools are more than familiar to me) - you're under the impression I wasn't capable of updating the mod, the only issue is that they're not on my account, rather than my being able to make the changes in code. Two other people have made the changes and notified me of what they were doing via PM, one here, one on my personal site - that's fine because they spoke to me first.

You, however, just reposted the changed code without bothering to ask if it was OK (since not only do I have an issue with it, it's AGAINST US COPYRIGHT LAW. That's why the SMF team remove such attachments.)

I honestly don't care what changes you made. The fact remains: you modified my work without my permission and redistributed it - in addition to that the team wouldn't have checked any changes you made (at least when they're on the mod site, it's possible for the Customizer team to check them)

Had you bothered to ask if it was OK to post the changes, I wouldn't be nearly so pissed. (Especially as someone only a couple of weeks ago took one of my mods, modified one file, and posted it to the mod site under their own name, and without bothering to credit me or even ask if it was OK)

If nothing else, it's only polite to ask someone about using their work...

I actually thought about fixing the mod myself.  Then I thought to myself why not simply track the order of the mods I uploaded by assigning a number to each mod's zip file before upload.  So much easier.

By the way you can not do that since I came up with the idea first.

Sounds great and you can modify the mod to do that just for you provided that you keep it to yourself and not redistribute it.
