How do I move pages?

  1. I would like to have my pages in a certain order. Right now they are only in the order of when I first published them. I tried drag and dropping them but it doesn't do anything. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is 5starmagazine.com.

  2. Have your created a custom menu or not? If not then I advise you to do so. Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, but we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the dynamic running page for posts and also on the dynamic Categories pages, dynamic Tags pages and dynamic Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category/Tag in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    If you have created a custom menu and then later added more pages then you will have to go here > Appearance > Menu and add them.

    Troubleshooting
    Trouble with dropping and dragging read on please. Did you check the 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 custom menu. Establish consistency – problem solved.

  3. Thank you!

  4. You're welcome. :)
