Number 73 in the bug fixed list ‘Release Notes - Magento 1.0 with Revision 19700 (April 28, 2008)’
73. Layered navigation category sort fix
This is not fixed.
I just completed a fresh install and tested this again and it still does not sort the categories (in layered Navigation) in the correct order (the order they are placed in the back end)
I have been batteling with this issue from the very first release an im getting absolutely nowhere!!! :o(
Could someone please help a defeated man out on this?
