Im trying to find a mnemonic for the modes in order C ionian D dorian etc. I saw one on here but i forgot it. I cant think of one myself!

I think you are thinking of C ionian, D dorian, E phyrgian, F lydian, G mixolydian, A aeolian, and B locrian. Honestly in my opinion it is more important to learn how to construct the modes, not memorize an order they appear in, as that does not really have anything to do with how they are used.

Ionian
Dorian
Phrygian
Lydian
Mixolydian
Aeolian
Locrian

Which clearly spells idplmal, I can't see how you didn't think of this.

Seriously though, there are only 7 of them, just memorise them.

Fair enough, that's an acronym. But couldn't you just have something stupid like I Dont Play Lydian Mode A Lot ?

I Do Phat Licks Modes Are Lame

learning the order is not important learning the uses and feel of each mode is.
