Hopefully if you're trying to sort data it's coming from a database, not hard coded info.

Would be best to do the sorting in your DB & just pass that to Smarty, rendering it with foreach, section, etc.

If you don't want to go with PEAR, there's a very good php MySQL class called "ezSQL" http://justinvincent.com/ezsql which makes it very easy to use databases with php (it actually supports many RDBM's such as Postgre, Oracle, MS-SQL, etc.). http://www.learnwake.com/scripts/ez_sql/ez_sql_with_smarty.html shows how to use ezSQL with Smarty. The ezSQL author also has a php class for pagination, which has been slightly extended by the author on the learnwake site.

However, if your data is hard-coded, again it would be better to present the sorted data to Smarty. In this case you'd want to check out PHP's many sorting features.
