Sort user attributes on profile page

Permalink 2 users found helpful
User attributes are displayed in the order they were created. If I created an attribute 'favourite colour', then another one 'first name', is there a way to make 'first name' appear first on the profile page?

You could simply have the attribute be printed first in PHP, if you're coding it by hand that way.

If you want to dynamically sort things, that's beyond my knowledge at the moment.

Edit: Maybe I misunderstood. Are you working with member profile pages (i.e. Single Pages)?

I would love to see this. So many times through the development things get added and the attribute list starts to look so un-professional.

I would love to be able to drag the order of them from the attribute page, much like the site map drag.

Just my 2 cents
@Andrew, I guess we posted at the same time.
Thanks for all your hard work

This is true for page attributes but you can actually drag the user attributes in the list to control their order on the registration page and in the profile

In case you want to do this, note that you need to change the "View Attributes" dropdown to "In one list" (on the on the Users and Groups -> User Attributes page), otherwise it doesn't work (I couldn't figure this out for the longest time!)

I'm trying to re-order the presentation order of user attributes on the View User page by dragging and dropping attributes in the list on Users and Groups > User Attributes. My goal is to create professional default presentation in the admin interface without having to re-enter a lot of directory information.

My problem: the drag and drop behavior seems to work, however the new order is not saved -- there is no submission button, and when I return to the User Attributes, the old attribute list order (of creation) returns. I don't see the view option mentioned in this thread in my interface -- is this a feature regression?

Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, and thank you all for any advice.

I didn't know you could drag the icons to change the order. That's great.

If you're looking for a flexible user LIST solution, including an AJAX implementation, control over attribute order, the ability to place one or more user lists anywhere on your site, and more, you might consider the following add-on...

It does not allow for control over individual user profile pages, but does provide nice options for listing users and their attributes.
