Chronological Order

  1. I want to change the chronological time of my blog. I do not like the latest entry on the same date being at the top, I would like to reverse it. Is it possible?
    Blog url: http://retaildoom.wordpress.com/

  2. Yes. You have to edit the timestamp of each blog post so that oldest appears newest, etc, and you have to keep doing that. Note that you WILL confuse your readers this way.

  3. Okay, sounds like I should just leave it alone, relatively new to this it does seems odd to me.

    Thank you for your input.

  4. As raincoaster pointed out above WordPress by default shows posts in reverse chronological order (newest at top). For returning visitors, the is very convenient since they can see the latest post without having to page down through page after page of hundreds of posts they have already read. 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.

  5. Hi, i too would really like my blog to read in chronological order. Seeems we are not the only ones, the more i search the web for ideas/help the more i see we are not the only ones..Many many people would like chronological order also....Anyways, i was wondering if you had found a solution?

  6. There is no "solution" because there nothing is "broken". Blogs are essentially a reverse chronological publishing tool. Though some bloggers may wish to reverse the post order we cannot do that on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Those who feel they must require that ability hire a web host and set up their own WordPress.org install and insert a plugin to accomplish the change in post order. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  7. What i meant, was a solution to my problem... I imagine before too long chronological order for blogging will be available at the touch of a button, but for now i need to keep asking and looking around until i find my way..Thank you for your time,timethief.

  8. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to happen here at wordpress.com. If I felt thais was essential to my blogging then I would hire a web host, set up a wordpress.org install, and install the required plugin.

  9. Dear timethief...Just re-read your comment..'those who feel they must require....' I am not some precious princess wanting special treatment here..What i want to blog about would be better presented in a chronological format and i am trying to find a way to do it....

  10. not very friendly round here,is it?

  11. My wording was very awkward above and I apologize for it. I clearly understand what you want and I do beieve you know that I do. I know what you want cannot be achieved on a free hosted WordPress.com blog, and I told you the only way to achieve it, which is by hiring a webhost, setting up a wordpress.org install, and installing the required plugin. Best wishes with your blogging.
