14.9 Rearranging the Order of Items

You can change the order in which items are displayed in a region.

If items in a region are sorted by title or size, you cannot rearrange them and the Arrange Items icon is not displayed in the region toolbar. To rearrange these items, the page designer or a user with the appropriate privilege must edit the region's properties and select Default as the Sort By option.

In all other cases, you can rearrange items that are grouped and items that are not grouped. Grouped items can be rearranged within their groups, and ungrouped items can be arranged within all the items in the region. This section describes both tasks. It includes the following subsections:

14.9.1 Rearranging the Order of Ungrouped Items

To rearrange ungrouped items:

  1. Go to the page that contains the items you will rearrange.

    For information on locating a page through the Page Groups portlet, see Section 8.1, "Locating Pages in Oracle Portal".

  2. Click the Edit link at the top of the page.

    This opens the page in Edit mode.

  3. In the region that contains the items that you want to rearrange, click the Arrange Items icon (Figure 14-28).

  4. In the Arrange Items list, select an item and use the Move icons to re-order it in relation to the other items in the list. Repeat this step for all items you will rearrange.

  5. When you are done, click OK.

14.9.2 Rearranging the Order of Grouped Items

To rearrange grouped items:

  1. Go to the page that contains the items you will rearrange.

    For information on locating a page through the Page Groups portlet, see Section 8.1, "Locating Pages in Oracle Portal".

  2. Click the Edit link at the top of the page.

    This opens the page in Edit mode.

  3. In the region that contains the items that you want to rearrange, click the Arrange Items icon (Figure 14-29).

  4. Select the group name from the <grouping criterion> drop-down list.

    This list displays when the item region is configured to group items by a selected criterion, either category, author, date, or base item type. Use it to select the group-by criterion of the items you want to rearrange.

  5. In the Arrange Items list, select an item and use the Move icons to re-order it in relation to the other items in the list.

    Repeat this step for all items you will rearrange within the selected group.

  6. When you are done, click OK.

    Repeat steps 3 through 6 to rearrange items in other groups.
