New User: How do I make new posts show up before old posts on main page?

  1. Trying to make my blog posts show up in ascending order, from newest to oldest (i.e Jan 30th, Jan 29th, Jan 28th)? It's currently the other way around.. (Jan 28th, 29th, 30th)

    Don't really know what to look for lol. :(

    The blog I need help with is mrdefender.wordpress.com.

  2. Are you referring to issue pertaining with this blog address ? » http://mrdefender.wordpress.com/

  3. If you are asking about this blog linked to your name:
    http://mrdefender.wordpress.com/

    You have 2 posts dated 31 March 2010.
    Testing WordPress Blog is a sticky post
    Stop the Presses… is a regular post

    Edit your test post, go to visibility, and select "public" and untick "stick this post to the front page"

    Here's some advice. Sticky posts are best used on a temporary basis only. Readers come to our blogs to read our most recent content. If you insist on having one on your front page you are compelling your regular and returning visitors to scroll past it every time they access your site. This is an annoyance. Also note that in some themes using sticky posts results in search engine spiders not finding your latest content.
