I have a custom component that relies on JCR order for displaying assets (specifically, Content Fragments) in a particular order. The order should be customizable by Authors.
In AEM 6.5.6 and prior, the assets could be ordered in the List View by drag and dropping a handle at the right hand side of the list – as long as the parent folder was set to "Orderable" (i.e. had a "sling:OrderedFolder" type in JCR).
However, after upgrading to AEM 6.5.7 (Service Pack 7) the handles are no longer visible.
They appear to be hidden via a CSS class, possibly related to the introduction of the sorting functionality in the Card View and Column View.
I am wondering, is this a defect in AEM 6.5.7 or is the ordering functionality gone for good?
Is there any alternative way for Authors to order Assets?
