Reordering assets

Applicable to: all assets | Skill level: intermediate

Goal: Change the display order of tabs, subcategories or assets displayed on a category/list page.

Note: These instructions are for changing display order, not for moving assets from one folder to another within Cascade. For information on moving assets. see deleting, moving & renaming.

In the left-side asset tree, assets within the Base Folder are displayed in hierarchical/alphabetical order, which does not necessarily correspond with how they display on your live website. (See folder structure in Cascade for more information).

Assets (folders, pages, references, blocks etc.) display on your site in the order in which they were created, unless you reorder them.


  1. Select the folder containing the assets you want to reorder, to display its contents. 

    • If you're reordering tabs, this will be the Base Folder.
    • If you're reordering subcategories (the headings that appear on the left side of a category/list page), this will be the folder for the tab under which the subcategories reside. (Note about reordering subcategories: If you need to change the subcategory that appears first, please contact us for assistance).
    • If you're reordering items displaying as blocks on category/list page, this will be the folder for the subcategory under which the assets reside.

  2. Click "Order" to sort the folder contents in ascending or descending order.

  3. When you hover your mouse over an item in the list, your cursor will change to a double arrow. Click, hold and drag the item up or down to reposition it in the list.

  4. ALTERNATIVELY, under the "Actions" column, you can use the arrows to move the asset up or down.

  5. You do not need to Submit these changes. They are committed automatically.

  6. To implement these changes properly on the live site, you must re-publish the folder you selected in step 1.
