Hi, I have a custom taxonomy called “sources” with several hundred terms and child terms. I would prefer to use the categories widget not the navigation menu widget because the latter requires manual creation (again, I have hundreds) whereas the former is incredibly convenient. The problem is that I don’t want to order my terms by creation date, name, slug or count. I need a custom order because my terms have names like Part 1, Part 11, Part 4A, Item 6 etc., and I created them at various times, and their count isn’t relevant, so none of the ordering options work for me. As I said I would really rather not create hundreds of menu items as an alternative. I have tried adding the custom term meta field “rank” and copied your “orderby.php” file into my child theme and added a “rank” option, but without success. Is there any way to accomplish what I want? See the sidebar menu at the url below. The top level is one of my child terms in the “sources” taxonomy and the other items are grandchildren. Thanks.
