I already kvetched about this, but I thought perhaps an idea would be more constructive. I just want to make my very first post always my first post. Evidently there are plug-ins, but I don't have the patience or the inclination to try to install one. Besides, they seem only to be written for earlier versions. The only workaround I can think of is to edit the date of my first post to be later than my actually most recent one. My address is http://www.ericdobbs.com/cgi/wp/ Take a look. I have already decided that this is not worth wrestling with, but it might be okay, if it were easier to use.
