what happened is that I have a WP install on my desktop that I use for practice - to help me learn how things work pending the time i'll get a host.
Thanks for the weblink to the article.....Yes, I was able to verify that the Page Ordering idea works. I also verified the other codes, as per Menu Listing and Sorting Posts by date(below). I commented them out so I wont forget what they do...
<? php /* my comments here:Listing of (below) in the order defined by the Page Order setting in the
Administration > Write > Write Page panel */ ?>
<?php // wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?>
<? php // Display Pages sorted by post date, and show post date (creation date) next to each Page.?>
<?php // wp_list_pages('sort_column=post_date&show_date=created'); ?>
<? php //display pages sorted by post date but dont show the date ?>
<?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=post_date'); ?>
Note: this works on my PC(locally) etc......
what Im asking is how do I make it work as per blogging online with WordPress.org. Using the idea of Page Ordering(assinging an order number to each posted page), the only thing I could do(I think) would be to start from an order number like 100 for the first post and then ill be decreasing it...99, 98, 97 etc, just to make sure the most recent post stays on top. The question is what happens after 100pages?
is there something like negative number ordering?
or is there another way to go around it? as in make the most recent(date-wise) page stay on top?
