Changing post navigation order

    I've got a webcomic type blog using the twenty Fourteen theme. I've set things so that only a single post is displayed at any one time.

    The trouble is the posts aren't treated chronologically. By default you're taken to todays strip, and to view yesterdays strip you have to click 'next' which in context makes no sense. Similarly the latest post is always 'post 1 when actually todays was the 33rd post.

    How do I go about reversing the way the navigation works? I still want the most recent post to be the default one, I just want people to click 'previous' to move back through the posts and 'next' to move forward through them. At present it's the wrong way round.

    Thanks All

    The blog I need help with is starwhat.net.

  2. Blogs are essentially a reverse chronological order publishing tool wherein the most recent published post will display on top. You cannot change this order on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. It's designed to serve your visitors as they come to read the most recent posts and will not be inclined to trawl through hundreds of posts to locate it.

    See here for the option of creating a book-like structure > http://en.support.wordpress.com/write-a-book/ Perhaps that will work for you.

    Or you could use a single sticky post as an index page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

    Or you can falsify every date-stamp before publishing in the Publish module.
