As far as I can tell, the only way to arrange existing sites into folder is to drag them onto the folder names in the site manager. Each folder is sorted alphabetically and there's nothing that can be done about that.
Right, so here's where the problem comes in. If one folder has so many sites that all you can see if that folder's sites, it's impossible to move a site out of that folder. Imagine that in your site manager you have a folder "Personal" and in there there's another folder "No longer used" or similar. Now imagine that the 'No longer used' folder has exactly 26 sites, labelled A-Z, and you want to me Site 'M' out to its parent folder 'Personal' (maybe the site's coming back into use, that was my specific problem). Because the window's only big enough to see C-M or H-R or M-W (see the problem?) you can't actually see the parent folder and thus ypou can't move M out.
Correct me if I'm wrong and there's a simple way to do this that I can't see, but as far as I can tell this is impossible.
I'm aware that the site manager window is resizeable, and luckily this fixed my specific problem, but this could still happen at maximum (screen resolution-restricted) size.
Basically, the fix I see is to make it so that the list view scrolls when you drag near the top or bottom, but I understand that this may be impossible due to not being implemented in wxWidgets. Alternatively, make the listing not force alphabetical sorting, that way one can slowly move it up the tree. Not ideal but definitely a solution. Maybe a button or right click action can "alphabetise this folder" or whatever for people who want that.
