Not offhand, but perhaps this is something you'd be interested in sponsoring?

Sort category topics by title in alphabetical (A-Z) or reverse-alphabetical (Z-A) order.
MIT or CC0 license
NodeBB v1.3.0 required for Z-A sorting.
Updated to NodeBB 1.4.0
When I used this plugin It wouldn't let me go to my categories, it would just load until. I had to disabled the plugin to fix this issue. maybe a conflict-ion with another plugin?
@Steven-Rafferty It should be fixed now, are you on version 1.2.0 of the plugin?
Hi @yariplus ,
I've just installedyour plugin but it doesn't seem to be doing anything... I can see the 'A-Z' and 'Z-A' under 'Sort By', but it doesn't change the order of the categories or topics.
I'm running NodeBB v1.5.1.
@silvia Thanks, it seems to be working for me.
Could you open the plugins' admin page and click on the Reindex Topics button, then check the NodeBB log for errors?
Also, results of
git rev-parse HEAD
Hi, after install your plugin after i making re-index from admin dashboard it says me error: TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of null
and some troubles with pagination for example I had 27 topics in category, but it scroll only to 17. thanks in advise
@dread What version of NodeBB are you on?
The plugin is outdated. I can push out an update tomorrow.
Fine.cool) I am on v1.5.4.
I think you mean 1.6, there is no 1.5.4. Anyway, I'll get it fixed asap.
Sorry) it was my own strange bug) somehow I was create topic with null slug and plugin can't reindex topics. Anyway thanks for fast responce!
I'm also getting an error:
29/9 10:43:14  - error: TypeError: set.match is not a function

v1.4.0 published, fixes nbb 1.6.x compatibility.
Updated to latest NodeBB.
Fixed error when editing posts.
I just wanted to ask if you're still working on or updating this plugin. I posted an issue on github a couple of months ago, concerning disappearing topics:
Alphabetical topic sorting would be super helpful for us, but unfortunately the plugin is unusable with this issue. It would be nice to know, if I can expect something happening here.
I just realized what the problem was. As soon as I hit "RE-INDEX TOPICS" in the settings, there weren't any disappearing topics anymore. So I guess the index wasn't complete.
How often is the index running automatically? Should I do this manually on a regular basis?
@AlexG Hey! Sorry, I missed your issue. I'm no longer actively maintaining any of my plugins, but feel free to poke me on GitHub any time.
As far as re-indexing, it does this exactly once. When the plugin is installed. Normally, there should not be a need to do it more than once, but if there was any error during re-indexing, or if a very early version was used, it could be required.
If new topics are now correctly sorted, then everything should be working fine. Otherwise, poke me again on github and I'll take a peek.
