Change Page Orders in WordPress

July 8th, 2009 No comments

Directly copied from WordPress support page:

Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can change the order pages are displayed in by using the order field.

Let’s say you have three pages: Animals, Machines, WordPress.

That is the order they will normally appear in. If you wanted WordPress to appear first, you need to do the following:

1. Click Pages –> Edit on the menu.
2. Find the page WordPress and click the title.
3. Find the Attributes module.
4. Put the number 1 in the text field for Order. This tells WordPress to make this the first page in the list.
5. Click the Update Page button.

Repeat the process for your other pages, but use higher numbers for the Order field: 2, 3, etc. This tells WordPress to make these the second and third items in the list.

If you are using the Pages Widget, you will want to edit the widget, click on the Sort By dropdown, and change it to Page Order. Then click the Done button on the widget options box and finally, click the Save Changes button.
