can someone explain why single checkboxes are handled differently in exposed filter?

views/theme/theme.inc line 888

<?php
function template_preprocess_views_exposed_form(&$vars) {
..
 
// Put all single checkboxes together in the last spot.
?>

I have a custom filter handler which is exposed as a single checkbox, and now wondering why it is displayed as the last exposed filter..

Before I abandoned the idea of single checkboxes (they don't work right with get requests; they're either checked or "Don't know" so you can't actually tell if they're *unchecked*) I had this idea that single checkboxes could easily be grouped together. I would advise against using single checkboxes.

thanks Earl, that makes sense.. The "either checked or Don't know" works for me, as I only need to change the query when the checkbox is checked..

Is checkbox exposed filter work correct in your case? You've written "they don't work right with get requests"

It doesn't really help if you open multiple issues.
