#1207 closed defect (wontfix)

Doesn't appear to sort alphabetically, at least in this particular use case?

Priority: normal Component: HierWikiPlugin
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


While attempting to use the SubWiki macro, it seems to put the entries in an order that doesn't make any sense to me. I expected them to be in alphabet order.

The macro I used was:


This resulted in (rendered):

  • UserManual/Vol1/Sec1 Introduction
  • UserManual/Vol1/Sec4 Menu Functions
  • UserManual/Vol1/Sec5 Jzz Tools Overview
  • UserManual/Vol1/Sec2 Jzz Overview
  • UserManual/Vol1/Sec3 Jzz Plan View Display

The order I would expect is Sec1, Sec2, Sec3, Sec4, and then Sec5. If instead it sorted by the title of the wiki pages, I would have expected it to be "Introduction", "Jzz Overview", "Jzz Plan View Display", "JZZ Tools Overview", and finally "Menu Functions".

Am I doing something wrong? I have tried grabbing the latest version from trac-hacks and it did not change the behavior. Thanks for any help!!

Currently pages are added to the good_pages-array with the pagename as key and the title as value. then the array is sorted by keys. I'm new to python but MAYBE it will work if you replace in macros/

good_pages.append((p, title)) with good_pages.append((title, p))

put good_pages.sort() before return html.UL(

and replace ) for p,t in good_pages wit ) for t,p in good_pages I'm currently not able to test this because the only trac I have access to is a live system ;)

Replying to

put good_pages.sort() before return html.UL(

This sorts it on the pagename. (which is fine for me)

To sort on the title, it seems you need to pass a compare function to the sort operation: But I am also new to python.

This sorts it on the pagename. (which is fine for me)

If you also do the other changes I suggested, it should sort on the title, becouse I changed the order of p and t (pagename and title).

Confirmed as a problem for me, too. Sorting on pagename would be fine for me, too.
