Changing order of pages as seen on blog

  1. Hi!

    I'm looking for a little help regarding changing the order of pages as seen by visitors on my site. Right now, they can see home, about, contact, writing from left - right. I'd like to swap the positions of my contact and writing pages - is there an easy way to do this? Thank you in advance!

  6. I have found an answer!! From your Dashboard go to "All Pages". Click the page you would like to be first. Scroll down until you see "Page Attributes", under which you will find the "Order" box. Just type in what number you want that particular page to be out of all your pages. Also, this number may be off by one if your first page is static. Hope this gets you where you need to be.

  7. It worked! Thank you so much - I appreciate you coming back to share the tip with me. :)

  8. You are very welcome! Glad I could help.

  9. Hi,
    I have the same problem, I can’t put my pages in order. My blog is hosted by wordpress.com, and when I click on “Pages” in the Dashboard, there is no “Order” option. What should I do?

  10. There are two approaches you can use. This first one is when you only have Pages.

    1. Page Order - Page attributes module order numerically rather than alphabetically.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-attributes/

    2. This approach is for those who have created a custom menu and have added pages to that custom menu.
    create a custom menu http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    add the pages and sub-pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-pages
    order them http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#changing-the-order-of-menu-items-and-creating-sub-menus

    Troubleshooting – My pages are in the wrong order
    If you have a custom menu then you must establish consistency. Check the Pages sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required.

    Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved
