If you look at my menu
When you hover over the By Category, the first sub-category that shows up is Abrasives. So why then the first Easy Catalog Images category is CUTTING WHEELS?
Shouldn't it display the same exact as the top menu?
EasyCatalogImages takes your default magento category structure and order to show at fromtend.
Your top menu is created by some other extension and probably it has its own sorting for your catalog.
