    How do I get the pages to be in the order I want? For instance, I might want History first, then Blog, then Class Descriptions. In case it makes a difference, this is based on the Pool theme. (does the them make any difference to most how-to questions?)

    You can specify them manually in the file, but that's a burden if you ever need to add new pages. Other than that I think WordPress always uses the Alphabetic order thing.

  3. No, it's not always alphabetical. You specify page order in the admin area (edit each page and give it a sort value) and assuming that template is using the right tag, it'll show up as "menu order".

    At the bottom of the "Class" page and the "History" page, I clicked on Edit This Entry. On the right, there is a + for Page Order and I clicked on that, then put a 3 for Class and 2 for History (with Save for each) but it's still alphabetical. Any other ideas? And if I want the Blog page to be in a position other than 1, how do I tell it what page to be?

    Go to your theme, and look for the template tag displaying the pages. I am guessing it might be wp_list_pages. You can find more info at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_pages to have it arranged as you please

    Thanks for the tip. I've decided to do it another way, just put the pages as a blog entry and put it in a Category. that way I only have a few pages on top.
