How can I make my favorite spaces appear alphabetically on my dashboard

I just upgraded to Confluence 5.9.7. I like how I can see my favorite spaces on my dashboard, but don't like how they aren't organized alphabetically. Anyone know how?

You could insert the following in your custom HTML:

//Sort My Spaces on the dashboard in alphabetical order
AJS.toInit(function() {
    if ($("body").hasClass("dashboard")) {
        $( document ).ajaxComplete(function( event, xhr, settings ) {
			if ( settings.url.indexOf("search?cql") > 0 ) {
				var mySpaces = $("#sidebar-spaces > div > ul > li").detach();
				mySpaces.sort(function (a, b) {
					return $(a).find('.aui-nav-item-label').text() > $(b).find('.aui-nav-item-label').text() ? 1 : -1;
				$("#sidebar-spaces > div > ul").append(mySpaces);

Thanks so much, Stephen!

That script does not have any effect in my environment. I tried all three custom HTML sections available. Any other idea?

Where do we put this code?

To include JavaScript inside Custom HTML, go to Confluence Admin > Custom HTML and insert the code in the "At end of the HEAD" textbox.

Code didn't work for us either. on Confluence 5.10.0

I see now that it was loading the spaces dynamically. The updated code should work (but it will only work for 5.10 and below, it won't work for 6.0).

That worked great! thank you.

is there an update which works Confluence 6.10?

I have the same question for Cloud.
