Post got moved towards end of blog when adding picture

  1. Look for a little help.... Started my first blog and I got so frustrated this morning when by simply adding a picture to an old post, I messed up the order of the posts. Basically my first 30 posts were numbered and when I added a picture to post 12 it moved it from between post 13 and 11 to between post 1 and 2? Any ideas? Thanks.

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

  2. It's because you have posted them all on the same day, and when you updated the post it promoted it as a recent 'today's' post.

  3. It's never wise to post every post with the same date, it will lead to no end of problems for you, especially as you have some of them numbered. 30 posts seems an awful lot to have for one day, are you adding posts with the same date for a reason?

  4. Thank you for responding... Basically I was just doing a message board before and I simply moved all the posts from that message board to the blog. That's why I have so many posts for one day. Moving forward I will not. So to your knowledge, there is no way to fix? I would understand if editing moved it to the top, but it doesn't make sense that it moved it between Post #1 and #2?

    Small detail, I should really just forget it, but I was trying to make this blog perfect for my daughter. Thanks!

  5. It moved because of the time, and you made it more recent than the others on the same day because you edited it. You could edit them all and change the dates, backdate them until they are eventually up to todays date. But that's not wise. You could re-edit the posts that got moved and change the time on them until they are placed where you want them. It's the time on them that dictates where they are placed when they are all posted on the same day.

  6. Ok, so I think I figured most of it out... I changed the times zone last night and this was the first update since the time adjustment. I think that is what messed things up. I modified the time and that seemed to fix it. When I go from post 11 to 12 it shows up, but now post 12 doesn't show up on the home page screen at all? Only if I click on post 11 and the hit next does it show up?

    Any suggestions on that? Thanks again, I really appreciate your time!

  7. Right so we got the original problem sorted, but now we have a new one? LOL You're going to have to change number 12 again and see if that fixes it. Put it at a different time as it may have the same time as the number 11.

  8. You can enable Infinite scroll and then it will show up. But there should be a button for Older Posts at the bottom of the page. Be sure and use the Recent Post and Archives widgets as well.

  9. It's on infinite scroll raincoaster

  10. Sorry novice me, had no clue what that means

  11. Staff have been introducing “infinite scroll" to themes — a site wide change that will be applied to all themes that are suitable for the implementation. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/to-infinity?replies=137

    Disabling the infinite scroll feature to get rid of the pop-up in the footer results in a "Load More Posts" tab, and you can't disable that "Load More Posts" tab from appearing and have "previous post" and "next post" links, without the Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

  12. Nevermind.... Just looked it up onmy own and fixed it!!! Thank you so so much!!!

  13. Sorry, I have to point out that thegiddygoat's suggestions weren't correct. Updating a post doesn't change its timestamp unless you edit the timestamp yourself, and there are no issues if you publish several posts with the same date. The only thing that would confuse the system is several posts with the same date and the exact same time stamp.

    As to how and why the posts have the same date, the fact that you created them the same day doesn't mean they have to show up as published that day: you can edit them and change their datestamp.
