custom menus - order of pages not working

  1. Ive read thru the content on Organizing Page Menus, and I drag and drop them into the order I want and click save, but my site is still showing the old format. Why? What else do I need to do?

    The blog I need help with is spryteloriano.com.

  2. 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 and/or other items such as custom links and dynamic categories 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

    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

  3. I just visited your blog and I can see you are off track. The static Pages we bloggers create site outside the blog structure and do not automatically update. There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
