    I have no idea how to rearrange the order of my PAGES listed in my navigation sidebar. I added the PAGES widget to my sidebar, but now want to reaarange the order of the pages.

    My website is http://www.spindriftfilms.com/wordpress

    Any help or suggestions would be fantastic.

    Consider downloading and installing Otto's PHP Code Widget.

    Then put this in one of those widgets:

    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?>

    Also you will need, when Edit/Adding Pages, to set the Order for each Page.

    Can't you just change the Order number when editing the Pages. Always works for me.

    Actually, looking at the Pages Widget, you can designate the order of the Pages by Page Order, and as webjunk suggested, set the Order field when editing/adding Pages.

    Thanks for the ideas and suggestions. I have already designated the order of the pages. For the top pull down menus on the site that seems to work great. However, for the sidebar navigation menu where I have inserted the PAGES widget, designating the order seems to have so effect...they are in random order.

    Did you designate the proper "Sort by" on that Pages Widget?

    See: Administration > Appearance > Widgets
