    Hello there
    How can I change the order of the pages. They are alphabetically ordered by default and I want to manually order them.
    Thanks.
    Valeria

    The blog I need help with is valeriaverona.com.

  2. they are ordered alphabetically as default, you'll have to change them manually.

  3. If you go into each individual page, there is a numeric ranking order on the right. It may be a bit cumbersome if you have many pages, but this will realign the order.

    There are two approaches to ordering pages. The first is best used when you only wish to have Pages in the horizontal menu bar.

    The second and superior approach is to create a custom menu.Read this for an excellent overview > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    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 Tags pages, Posts 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

  5. thanks a lot for your help! It's done :)

  6. The thing is I changed the order manually (from 1 to 4) but it is not reflected on the blog. Is this normal? Does it take a while to reflect? I already tried refreshing...

  7. No it ought to display right away but there have been other reporting issues with Pages, sub-pages and custom menus, so though I could be wrong, I do think Staff are working on them.
