Folder Sorting

What I’m trying to do

Is there any way to custom sort my folders ?

So far it looks like I can only sort by alphabetical, date created, last edited.

I’d like to be able to drag/order based on my own utility/preferences.

Things I have tried

Not much, sorry. New to Obsidian, and am not super techy.


The plugin/extension Brat and Bartender must be installed.

Install Brat from Community Extensions, then install Bartender (GitHub - nothingislost/obsidian-bartender: Allows for rearranging the elements in the status bar and sidebar ribbon) to complete the two-step (easy) installation process.

To find out additional information, try searching forums.

There isn’t any integrated functionality.

You can download the Custom File Explorer Sorting plugin in the Plugin shop


If you’re okay with a more unofficial variation, you can download Bartender from Github, as @looney.apache said. You don’t need Brat because its been abandoned for two years, you can just download it from releases

True, But I am diehard fan of bartender because it just works pretty well
