[resolved] Page Order in Sidebar (8 posts)

    I have two pages. The page with a title that is alphabetically first has a page order of '1,' and the page with a title that is alphabetically second ("Welcome") has a page order of '0.' The sidebar shows the Welcome page, which I want first, as the second in the list. I assume this is because of its alpha order, but I'm not sure. Is there any way to make that page the first in the sidebar list?

    What tag are you using currently?

    You probably need this?
    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?>

    No tag, just the desktop UI, putting a number in the "page order" field. Where would I put the code you provided? I assume in the sidebar template, but where there?

    There should be a wp_list_pages() tag in your sidebar. Inside the parentheses, please 'sort_column=menu_order'.

    See the wp_list_pages documentation for all the available options.

    Perfecto. Thanks. (And thanks for the cite to the Codex, which clarified how to add the parameter to a preexisting parameter.)

    Specifically, I changed mine to:

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

    Which worked great.

    Thank you! After searching through a dozen or so forum threads, this solution worked best. Until I added the extra:

    &sort_column=menu_order

    into the wp_list_pages php code, I could only have an alphabetical list of results.

    If you are using widgets edit the widget.php file under Plugins/Plugin Editor. Here is what the command line should look like:

    wp_list_pages("title_li=&sort_column=menu_order")
