  • Resolved Onthebuzz


    Hi all,

    Updated to 2.8.5 and use the simple WP Remix template (R. Bhavesh) as a skin to my blog at! Curious, I decided to scroll down posts (checking dates… and all lol) on the home page.

    A realisation was from top 3rd november 09 to date 17th october 09 this is in descending order which is fine and how we want it, but from date 17th october 09 onwards it jumps to 3rd August 09 in ascending order to the 16th October 09!

    This should be in descending order hence the appearance of 16th october 09 > september 09 > down to august and subsequent months, great!

    But not so great because between those missing dates there are plenty of current articles posted, kind of leaves the impression nothing was posted during that period!

    My question is how do I get every date into descending mode so only the freshest and recent content on the home page. Any ideas and help will be appreciated, files to access, code to update etc?

    A copy of the index.php –

    Apologies for being all wordy 🙂 but to explain this as much as can be! Thanks

    Much appreciated MichaelH. Thanks

    That index.php looks okay so can only guess that you have a plugin interfering with the order of post display.

    Much appreciated MichaelH for your continued assistance.

    With regards to plugin, any in particular that might affect order of post display and these are the ones we have installed:

    AddThis Social Bookmarking Widget (drop-down), Akismet, All in One SEO Pack, Breadcrumb Navigation XT, Embedded Video, FeedBurner FeedSmith, Get Recent Comments, Google Analytics for WordPress, Limit Posts, Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form, WordPress Affiliate Pro, WP-ContactForm, WP-Polls, WPtouch iPhone Theme

    Failing this plugin potential solution, any suggestions of any thing else that might be causing this?

    Either way, thanks for your input and time. Onthebuzz

    Can’t be sure…Limit Posts maybe. But to be sure you would need to deactivate all plugins then reactivate one-by-one to find the culprit.

    Much appreciated was of the same thinking, but was a bit unsure. Hopefully this does the trick, thanks for your time and input MichaelH

    Hi MichaelH

    I think I have found what was causing the “sticky” post function, toggled that for those posts and date order is fine.

    Not 100% how this happened in the first place, as majority of the posts where on “sticky” and were fine.

    Either way all the help is/was much appreciated. Thanks
