Trac will allow you to specify an order for custom fields, but there’s currently no way to change the order of inbuilt ticket fields, either out of the box or through any of the plugins on Trac Hacks.
You can still change the order, but it involves taking a copy of the ticket template source file and modifying it directly. It’s not hard, but might be a little scary for newbies. You’ll also need to be wary in case the original ticket template file is changed by the Trac team, in which case your modified copy will need updating.
Full instructions are available here.

It’s over. I’m ending it. I’ve found something better.
We’ve been together in an on-again, off-again sort of way since I was a naive young student. We’ve had our good times, but recently it hasn’t been working for me. You’re not holding my interest, and I know I’m not making you happy the way I used to.
Yes, next week I’ll be leaving NAG and going to work at Oxford Brookes University. I hope we can still be friends.
Coincidentally, I’ve decided to launch a new blog. My old student one was a bit, well, studenty, and ending it after I got married felt very natural. I’m hoping to write more sober, more considered things on this one. Whether I’ll stick to that remains to be seen…
There’ll certainly be a greater number of boring opinion pieces on the technological questions which interest me (currently software development processes and DevOps). You have been warned.
Wait – I don’t know you!
That seems implausible. Don’t you have better things to do than read an unknown blog, hypothetical stranger?
But OK, here’s the synopsis.
I am a professional and voluntary software developer, living in Oxford with my husband and my boyfriend. I enjoy geek things, such as board games, well-constructed TV shows, and fantasising about having enough time to play computer games. I also like to do domestic stuff – baking, gardening, inviting people round and then overfeeding them. In my imaginary spare time, I volunteer with FESS, part of the Red Cross, and with Three Rings, a not-for-profit organisation that supplies administrative services to charities. It’s both cooler and more interesting than I just made it sound.
