Ascending Posts by FlyPlugins


FlyPlugins presents Ascending Posts Plugin.

Have you ever wanted to shift the order of your posts to ascending by date opposed to descending?

This plugin adds a feature to a post category to allow the posts in that particular category to be displayed in ascending or descending order by date.

When you go to edit your category, you will have 2 options:

  • Ascending
  • Descending

This will automatically display posts on that category page ascending/descending based on your specification.

  3. Configure the plugin by going into Posts–>Categories, then click a category in which you would like to modify the post order, then select Ascending or Descending.


Does this plugin sort both ascending and descending




This is seriously a lifesaver for me because I was trying to find a way to reorder the posts in select categories without having to custom build templates. I spent a long time yesterday looking for a plugin that adds ordering options to the category edit window and here you have one! I came across this plugin by accident actually when searching Google.

I read the 1-star reviews here, but I gave this a try and have to say this worked for me. Now, if you plan any future updates of features, you may want to consider adding the option of “orderby” as well. Still, being able to set ASC to my theme tutorial categories just made my day!


Exactly what I needed

I wanted something that would allow my home page posts to continue to display the most recent post, but category posts to display in order for a story, this does the trick.
