Yeah Womble, I know what you are talking about. Strangely enough, I'm having the same problem as well. It sorted them automatically for like 4 weeks, but now it doesn't do it automatically. I can't seem to find the property for it either.
One thing though is that I THINK it stopped doing the sorting automation AFTER I installed Style XP. So maybe that's what is causing it. Do you have Style XP installed? Let me know, cus if you do, thats most likely the problem then.
I've just uninstalled StylesXP and installed another application and......it gets inserted in the right place - all on it's own.
So StylesXP is the culprit.
One other thing I noticed.
With the version of SXP that modified the dll file (beta 3 ?), when I uninstalled it, my theme remained intact.
With the latest version, it removes the theme on uninstallation
So if there's a timebomb in there, it looks as though they've also programmed around that little option in order to ensure no pay , no theme !
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
