This question about Topic Markup Language and applications: Answered
I need to display topic list (parents and childrens) using relevant (importance) order.
Correct me if I am wrong, but Foswiki by default always sort topics alphabetically regardless if I use Search marcro, Tree or other plugin.
How can I change this behaviour, so that I will be able to generate list in any order?
I thought about using DataForms
- add order field to each topic.
However I'm not sure if this is the best/suggested way of influencing order?

option for the
One additional option is to look at DBCachePlugin
which provides the
macro that serves similar purpose to the
macro but also allow sorting by multiple attributes.
