    I am just setting up my new blog, and I just imported my posts, etc from my wordpress.com blog. For some reason, they display in my new blog with the oldest posts on top. I would like my newest posts to display first. How do I fix this??

    Thanks~ Lisa

    If you switch to the WordPress Default theme what happens?

    If you deactivate plugins what happens?

    Are you sure the posts have the correct dates?

    I switched to the default and it's still backwards, and I haven't added or activated any plugins yet. :) Oh, and my dates are in this format: Sunday, January 24, 2010.

    Be interesting to see the post_date and post_date_gmt values in your wp_posts table using phpMyAdmin.

    Also in your Edit Post section of Admin, the posts are typically in newest to oldest order--is that what you see?

    You know what...... it does show them newest on top, but actually NONE of my 2009/2010 posts made the import. That's a whole new issue, I guess. lol

    Sometimes you have to do it (the import) once, twice, thrice...

    Okay. Do I have to delete the import I've already done? Or will it just import what failed to make it the first time?

    It shouldn't import what's already there. But do a database backup just in case.

    Hey, the same thing happens to me... Imported posts are shown backwards...

    The posts have the correct dates but they are shown with the oldest one (from 2009/08/08) at the top.
    I've tried with the default theme and it's the same..

    I don't know how to see the post_date and post_date_gmt values as you said, Michael, and I don't have MyPHPAdmin or cPanel from my hosting provider.

    Can you help?

    Thanks
