Allow custom ordering of properties in wikibase.cloud instances
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

While manually creating https://kbtestwikibase.wikibase.cloud/wiki/Item:Q10 property by property, I noticed that the Properties (statements blocks) remain displayed in the same order as I've added them.

I would like to be able to set the specific order of the properties myself, allowing the more important blocks (instance of, sex/gender, dob, dod, pob, pod, occupation etc) to be displayed at the top of the page.

In Wikidata P31, P22, P18, P27 etc are always displayed first. I would like to be able to specify the order myself, in some sort of "Property ordering form" where I can drag the more important Ps to the top. Once the order has been saved, all Qitems in my wb.cloud instance should be and remain ordered that way.

it may take a while for the property order to update due to caching btw

@I_is_chan : thanks! Adding such page to my Wikibase indeed did the trick: https://kbtestwikibase.wikibase.cloud/wiki/MediaWiki:Wikibase-SortedProperties , resulting in an accordingly sorted page, eg https://kbtestwikibase.wikibase.cloud/wiki/Item:Q29
