Posts Sort Order

    It would be great to have an easy drag-drop mechanism for sorting posts that didn't use the published date to determine sort order.

    They are sorted by date because they are blog posts. Non-chronological content is generally stored as pages rather than posts. I could see making the columns sortable so you could sort by title or author if you were trying to scan for something and you didn't want to use search for some reason, but I'm having trouble imagining a use case for drag-and-drop post sorting. Can you give some examples of when this would be useful? Do you mean you'd actually want to reorder the posts on the public blog based on the drag-and-drop, or do you mean you just want to change the display of the list in the admin?

    Drag-and-drop page ordering to create menus, on the other hand, seems very useful, and there are some great plugins that do that. I also think we'll have a page ordering mechanism built into core within the next couple of versions.

    This would make it really easier for me to set the sort order of posts in navigation. I would like to sort the order of posts in navigation by relevance/importance. Actual I only can realize this by setting the (top)navigation links for pages manually in the source code without using the wp-function for dynamic page navigation based on posts.

    Saying that drag and drop post sorting wouldn't be useful is pretty narrow-minded. People are using wordpress posts for much more than just chronological blog entries.

    We should all know by now that wordpress is much more than just a blog engine and having an easy way to sort posts in the admin (drag/drop, date, alpha, etc) would be a great benefit to many people.
