    define in more specificity the feature set you are looking for. There are a number of ‘sticky type’ plugins out there that do slightly different things…

    the feature i am looking for is the reordering of the posts xD. the placement of the posts.

    For example, posts are in this order:
    A
    B
    C
    D
    E

    and i wanted to reorder them to

    D
    C
    E
    A
    B

    thanks again

    Custom Query String Plugin does what you want. http://mattread.com/projects/wp-plugins/custom-query-string-plugin/

    *edit* No it doesn’t, it only orders in ascending or descending. Sorry

    Will you only ever have five posts?

    Is there a reason you can’t simply modify the timestamps to force-order them?

    Otherwise, plugins like my CG-PostOrder plugin (which needs to really be revised for WP2.x), Adhesive, etc. might meet some of your needs. PostOrder was specifically designed to allow a numerical ‘rank’ to each post, so you could force order them.

    BUT, you could just as easily do things like timestamp mods, sort by name and alpha-sort (start with numbers…), or use a custom post field with the sort number and sort on that (which is basically what PostOrder does…).

    But just your description above really doesn’t define how, say over the course of a year, you’ll want this stuff to work. How many posts will you have total, how many do you want to ‘sort’, do you want them just ‘sorted’ on the homepage or in index pages too, etc.?

    -d

    Is there something that allows users to sort? They could sort by DESC or category. And is there something that can sort by ASC according to a meta field?

    Ahh I see your plugin sorts by a custom field? Now I just need to allow users to change it themselves.

    The idea of posts is entries that are in a chronological order. If you want to change the order change the date. But if the date is of no importance then you should just use Pages – there are several plugins for sorting Pages.

    What about the ability to query the DB to have an alternate homepage view of posts DESC by number of comments?

    IE. Most commented blog post first, second most next, etc. etc.

    I would see this as allowing users to choose between views at will… any thoughts or ideas?
