Package Manager Order RC4

2.1RC4

Is this a bug or was just meant to be this way and is there a way to fix it?

In Package Manager I can click on and put in order everything (mods) by "ID, Mod Name, Version or Installed" but if you go to another page and return they'll be reset back to default. Is it possible to make it stay in the order I selected the next time I return to Package Manager? 2.1

The Sortable Packages (and Installed Time) mod by Arantor does this in 2.0 but thats 2.0! ;)
I have a 2.0.18 forum using that mod and I set the order of the mods a week ago and when I go back they're still in the same order! :)

The answer to your first question is yes, it is meant to be that way. Is there a way to fix it? It's not broken, at least by my memory of implementing it because I remember asking this question back in the day and I was told it didn't need to remember being sortable (especially as every other sortable list does not remember its ordering)

The package manager code has also been quite significantly overhauled in 2.1 meaning that the changes I made in the mod do not work (at all) in 2.1 and it would need to be rethought quite significantly since it's no longer one setting that needs to be saved, but several since each list on the page (mods, language packs, smiley packs, avatar packs) is a separate list with its own separate sort order.

Ok thats cool was just wondering! Cause in my mind I think it should be the way your mod is cause the less clicks when I'm installing mods and customizing the better IMO but that's just me. Of course I prefer all lists to remember it's order lol! ;D

(My reason is mostly because I have slow internet where I live and it takes too long to click and load the page twice, so the less clicks the better in my case If you know what I mean) ;)
