Custom Menu Posts Aren't In Reverse Chronological Order

  • goldferris

    @goldferris

    I use custom menus for my portfolio website: http://www.trishabartle.com/

    For some reason, all of the custom menu items, when clicked, show the posts in alphabetical order rather than reverse chronological. Anyone have any idea of what I can do to the code to change it?

    For example, if you click “News,” you’ll see posts from the “Updates” category, but in alphabetical order. Booooo.

    I’ve been doing some digging on my problem and have more information to add.

    So, I realized that my custom menus were pointing to category pages. When looking for a resolution, I looked for cat page sort stuff instead. I found a wide range of topics in these forums about using this code to change the sorting for posts:

    <?php query_posts($query_string . '&orderby=date&order=DESC') ?>

    I added that before the loop in archive.php. It didn’t work. I tried it in index.php. It didn’t work. So, I still have no idea why posts are sorting alphabetically instead of reverse chronological.
