Allow DNS records to be reordered

Currently the DNS editor doesn't provide any means of reordering the records. There was a feature request to sort the records by name instead of creation date but it was declined. It would be great if records could be reordered for organizational purposes. As it stands now, I have to read through the long list until I find the record I wish to edit.

    It would be wonderful if we can filter one specific type of record on the record list.

    I would also like the sort by columns method

    It would be really practical to have sorting by column (name, record type, etc) in the web UI.

    +1 this is a must for us who have loads of records.

    It would be ideal if we could rearrange them or at least group them by type (A, NS, MX, TXT) etc. For some websites I have numerous records for subdomains, MX's for Amazon, Gmail, Mailgun, all simultaneously active. Same goes for TXT and others. At the moment they seem to appear by order of entering, which can be confusing.

    I have too many records in a sense, would love to reorder them, EVEN IF VIRTUALLY ON THE PAGE.

    For now I inject a script to the page to allow sorting the stupid table.

    Possible sort options:
    Date created
    Last modified
    Alpha (traditional domain: subdomain.example.com)
    Alpha (reverse domain: com.example.subdomain)

    Just those four options would remove a pesky annoyance.

    This is crazy when you have a bunch of domains on a droplet. Simple JQuery UI Drag n Drop would be easy enough to implement.

    If you still want them sorted, I just cooked up this Greasemonkey/Chrome user script to do it on the client-side:
