Changing post order from oldest to newest

    I know that the main characteristic of a blog is to have the posts ordered from newest to oldest. However I think there are good reasons why the reverse order would make sense for many people. This is why I am writing to you to kindly ask to provide a possibility in the settings to change post order. Here an explenation why that would be so helpful for so many people:

    When you use the blog (like I did) for a specific travel than it makes sense that for the time of travelling the post order is from newest to oldest. However when the trip is over (mine was in 2007 and 2008) and you still want to provide these information, it is not nice for readers to have a viceversa post order.

    I want to publish a book about my trip and with it I want to share my pictures via the wordpress webblog. I have the idea that to each chapter in the book a post can be crated. But with the viceversa order it makes no sense.

    Therefore I kindly ask you to think again about your decision and maybe provide such a function.

    Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany.

    The blog I need help with is


    You can always change the order of your posts, manually, by changing the publishing date on each, but it’s a laborious business if you have a lot of content already in your blog.

    However, there is already a way to make a blog look like a book, see here:
