Order of blog posts

    What setting do I need to change to make my most recent blog posts show up at the top of my blog instead of at the bottom?
    Blog url: http://thewiggleroomnola.wordpress.com/

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



    There is no such setting. Blogs are essentially a reverse chronological order publishing tool and you cannot change this order on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. Posts will be posted to your blog in accord with their datestamps at publication. WordPress by default shows posts in reverse chronological order (newest post on top). For returning visitors, this is very convenient since they can see the latest post without having to page down through page after page of hundreds of posts they have already read.

    See here for the option of creating a book-like structure > http://en.support.wordpress.com/write-a-book/ Perhaps that will work for you.
    You could use a sticky post as an index page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts


    timethief – thank you for your prompt response. The problem is that my blog posts are NOT showing up in reverse chronological order…thus my subscribers are having to scroll down, through old posts, to get to the post recent one. Very inconvenient. =( Thoughts? Would you check out my blog & verify that they are showing in chronological order? Thanks!



    I´m propably having the same problem as thewiggleroomnola:
    In the right column the newest blog post header is on the top, but in the middle area the first ever blog keeps open. And that sucks. I think the last post should be open. (http://willetway.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/hello-world/)




    The default is UTC time but you can change it to your own date and timezone on this page > Settings > General
    You reset it to your own timezone by selecting the closest city to you in the same timezone in the drop-down menu you see there and then click “save changes”.

    If that doesn’t correct the issue then you could have a sticky post issue > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts
