How to Make an Item Sorting System

Okay... This is my first tutorial so I’ll make some debatable claims... please use this page as a debate room...

Fist of all, I’ll bet your asking... How? Well here’s a pretty crude way:
You’ll have to delete all the existing items (sorry:( ) and after that you will have to pick a round number on about how many items you will have in each category; we’ll use 100, Mmmmmmmkay?

Every 100 (er whatever) slots make 2 items. Lets say you want to have a healing category 1st. On number one make one called “Healing--------“. Make it a common item. Now comes the tricky part:

You can have one item called “----------“ after it but it will not always be beside it for instance if you have 23 items before it, it will look like:
Potion : 1 Big Potion : 1
Formula : 1 KEY ITEMS------: 1
--------------: 1 Blah : 1

Where it could look like this:
Potion : 1 Big Potion : 1
KEY ITEMS-----: 1 ---------------: 1

Or you could leave that one off:
Potion : 1 Big Potion : 1
KEY ITEMS---->: 1 Blah : 1

Or You could Use Three:

Potion : 1 ---------------: 1
KEY ITEMS-----: 1 ---------------: 1


Potion : 1 Big Potion : 1
--------------: 1 KEY ITEMS------: 1
--------------: 1 Big Potion : 1

And make one of those every hundred or so and you got your items organized!
