Is there a way to control the order of posts numerically?
For example, I want to assign a number to each post and this number will determine the order that the post is displayed in. We have assembled/are assembling a site (collaboration of many people) and we want everything to be displayed in the chronological order that the events took place. We don't want them displayed by Post Date which is the WordPress default. I've looked at plugins, but they only allow for alphabetical or categorical sorting, nothing that gives explicit control of the post order.
Any advice is appreciated. I'm using Thesis 1.6 theme.
