Support » Fixing WordPress » Page order problem

  • nolastar


    I am having trouble with the page order for WP-PortalTheme 2.1 by Portal Labs. The order is correct in the sidebar (widget sorted by “Page Order), but not for the horizontal buttons under the header. (Not sure of the technical name for these buttons).
    I have set the page order for each page, and also am using the My Page Order plug-in.
    Perhaps significantly I do not have this problem when I activate other themes.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are the pages in the main nav being generated using the wp_list_pages tag? If so, does it have the sort_column= parameter set? If so, what is it set to? If you have set the page order for each page in the admin than make it sort_column=menu_order I’m not familiar with the My Page Order plug in.

    An easier way and one that doesn’t risk messing with the coding:

    Change the edit date of your pages. If your theme is coded like mine, it adds pages according to date, then depth. Argh. That means you have to have planned it meticulously before starting out. Who needs that nonsense!

    To keep it simple, I figure my hard-wired “home” page is 1, so I’ve started using the publishing dates for the pages I’ve created as: July 2, July 3, July 4, etc. This puts the pages in order date-wise and shows me on the “pages” page which order they’re in, too.

    Yaaay for easy work-arounds!
