Allow sub-folders to be ordered (sorting) independently of the root folder above it.
In the dashboard, when I create a folder structure that uses sub folders. The sub folders can be ordered independently from the root folder above. This works fine in the dashboard but not on the front end of the website. After submitting a support request I was told that this is not a bug but is by design (Ticket #372 Sort ordering not working correctly again on different website).
An example is:
Root A (Order by Title)
-- Sub B (Order by date)
-- Sub C (Order by Ordering)

Everything is ordered properly in the dashboard, however on the front end, it is all ordered by Title (inherited from the Root A folder).
Can this be added or fixed. It only seems logical to me to have this and since it works in the dashboard, it should work on the front end of the website as well.

Thank you

Yes, currently, the child categories will follow the ordering of the root category. This would be useful in some cases.
Anyways, we will note that feature for a version to come.

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
