this is a suggestion for something simple but pretty needed everytime:
Allow drag & drop ordering of field groups. Not the items within a field group, but the field groups itself. User field groups, Post field groups, etc.
Reason: to allow users/admins to see the content in the cronology that makes sense to the developer.
It's not very inviting to have to make a php function all the time for some ordering, and make changes through that 🙂
(existing ordering plugins don't handle toolset ordering)

Dear Filip,

Are you going to setup the default order of the post field group metabox? yes, you are right, there isn't such a built-in feature within Types plugin, and I forward it to our developers to evaluate.

And each post field group is a wordpress metabox, so when you edit a single post/page, you can drag and drop the post field group meta box to where what you want.


Hi Luo, yes that's correct, thanks for forwarding this suggestion.

True that i can order the metaboxes on the page, but that would only have effect to my login rank. For other ranks, fe customers, that wouldnt make any change, as i discovered much earlier.

Kind regards
