Appearance/Layout Question (7 posts)

    Hey guys, new wordpress user here (yay!) I've got a few questions to ask regarding how my site is shown and how I can modify it:

    1) Under the Pages section, is it possible to reorder the Page links instead of them being listed in alphabetical order?

    2) I posted two entries today but the first one I made is shown first on top rather than the latest one I made up. Is it possible to have WordPress always list on top the latest entry made?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yup, you can change the order when you're editing a page (or making a new one). And via Quick edit (v2.7).

    With Quick it's the second row in the right column (named Order).
    With the normal Edit it's (by default) in the right column, below Parent and Template (again named Order).

    By default the value of the (page)order of a page is 0

    yea....but the pages still show up alphabetically even after I updated my sidebar code to this:

      <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?>

    I don't see why the pages won't go in the order I set?

    There is a nice little plugin called My Page Order that allows you to drag and drop your pages to reorder them in the admin area...makes it easy.

    Does this plug-in do anything for me too?
    I'm trying to get my sub-pages to show under the parent page on the menu bar, but instead they appear by themselves.
    It works on my other bloggsite (http://blogg.lailanorman.se) under the second link (Allmäna inlägg) but on my other site it just sits by itself... I don't remember using the plugin you described on my first site.
    Can I do something else, aside from choosing the appropriate side as attribute? (Instead of parent) I can't understand what's wrong.
