Plugin - Easy Post Order
April 2011 :: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-post-order/
Easy Post Order is the first WordPress plugin I have ever coded. At the time of this writing, it has gotten more than 8,000 downloads! It came out of necessity, when one of our clients wanted an easy way to custom-order posts in each category. The plugin uses jQuery UI draggable / sortable to make this very easy. Unfortunately, I have stepped away from development recently and I have not been able to update it for the latest WordPress versions.
