  • Resolved oneflymiss


    I have the newest version of wordpress running on my webserver and I have a question about the order of the pages that I created in the Write Page section of wordpress ex: About, Archives, Contact, etc.

    My question is this:
    In my wordpress control panel I created my Archives page first, then listed the About and Contact pages afterwards. So now on my site it is in this order too. How can I get Archives to show up last without deleting and starting over. I’d like ‘About Me’ listed first, then ‘Contact’ and ‘Archives’ last.

    Is there a way to sort the order without deleting them and starting over?

    (Hope my question makes sense)

  • If you edit the pages you added there should be a section Page Options that allows you to specify the Page Order, number the pages in the order you want them displayed.

    Thank you!!! I don’t know how I missed that. I guess I was looking too hard:)

    Wow, newbees take note, searching DOES return results! hehe…
    I was about to make that mistake and post away without searching first.
    Shame on me.

    Anyhoo, my problem is the same as above, however I’ve ordered my pages using the above step, however it still shows listed by last-edited?

    Am I still missing something?
    …or did I not search enough… hehe…
    Slam me if so:) Thanks for any help:)

    You need to pass parameter to the template tag to specify the order

    Darn, tried that, but still nogo:(
    Thanks MUCH for the link… bookmarked!
    I should have looked harder:)

    I’m using the following code from the codex, but it is still not ordering by page order in manage pages menu

    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=<h2>' . __('Pages') . '</h2>' ); ?>

    For now do you folks think I should just use static links in my sidebar directly to my permalinks for my pages till a fix is made?

    Sorry to ask.

    I’m also going to do a fresh install of WP to see if it is somethin mundane that I commented or killed my accident:)

    Thanks again for the help!

    Ok, I did a fresh install of WP, and my page loop looks like so:
    <?php wswwpx_fold_page_list ('sort_column=menu_order&title_li='); ?>
    If you notice, I’ve set it up so that it “should” be sorting by Menu Order as defined here:

    But it still is not working?

    Any tips anyone could throw my way would be very welcomed!


    NOTE: I am using the “fold_page_list” plug, but that is not messing with the sorting at all.

    Sorry to keep asking all, but does anyone have a fix for this?

    My #sidebar page loop code is above, and according to the codex, I’m doing it right, but it still won’t sort by menu_order?

    PS, I checked to make sure my menu_order in my admin panel has the correct numerical hierarchy as well i.e.:

    1: About RAGEBLOG
    2. Experiments
    4. -Test sub page
    3. Izzy Fat Loss
    6. -Daily Chart
    5. -Daily Schedule

    Ideas? Thanks for anything!

    NOTE: I am using the “fold_page_list” plug, but that is not messing with the sorting at all.

    Are 100% sure of this? Did you try if the desired display order works without the plugin?

    Yeah, thats the weird thing.

    I’m stumped.

    I might just start over to see if it fixes itself, so I’ll wait to see if anyone has any ideas by friday, if not I’ll try it again.
