    How to? -- Sort Pages so they are listed alphabetically

    My sites pages seem to appear randomly in the listing of ALL PAGES.
    I don;t find a sort mechanism.

    Is there a way to sort or REORDER these pages so they appear in alphabetical order?

    Thanks

    You can sort Pages alphabeticallY in Pages > All Pages screen by hovering over the "Title" header and clicking on the arrow which shows up beside the Title on hover http://codex.wordpress.org/images/d/de/managepages.png

    Wow, incredible. I;d think the amount of time I spent looking for something like that, I'd have stumbled across that HOVER function.

    Thanks very much.

    Thank you for this, but I have always wanted to know how to do the opposite of this feature, ie: to put the pages in ANY order.

    The arrow mentioned on Title hover seems to only put the pages in Alphabetical order or Reverse Alphabetical order. It would be handy to reorder the pages how you want.

    Is that possible at all?

    thanks

    @rustybulb next time, please create a new topic. You can organize your pages by changing "Page Order" under Page Attributes to e.g. 1, 10, 20, etc. http://codex.wordpress.org/images/2/26/writepage.png
    Lowest number will show up first in Pages > All Pages screen

    Hi @mercime,

    Thank you - that's great!

    Now my pages are in an order that makes a lot more sense.

    I gave them the numbers:
    10,20,30,40,50,60,70
    so I only have to add 31,32 etc, if I decide to add more. That'll save re-numbering every page.

    thanks again
