One problem that I am having is that the most recent post order seems to be incorrect.
For example, by clicking on manage / posts link in the admin panel, the results never change. The order of the posts is being sorted by some value that I cannot figure out (and it isn't the Post ID - or by the newest post).
Currently, my admin panel lists the most recent posts as starting with Post ID 352. The next post listed is 10, and then it is 110. It then continues up to 241, then jumps to 3.
On the webpage, it is correctly putting the most recent post at the top, so that is fine.
The only problem is that the rss file seems to be pulling the post order (or the newest posts) from the same place as the admin (since the rss file never changes and shows the same order of posts at the admin, which is not correct).
I host the site at dreamhost (which uses mysql) and can certainly make any Database changes (although I don't know what it all means, I can follow instructions well and am not afraid to play around).
Just playing with wordpress, my guess is that somehow/where there is a file that I need to update, but I'm not sure. I've searched for an answer, but I can't quite figure this one out. Any help would be entirely appreciated. Thanks!
