    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone knew if there was any way of changing the order of the Featured Posts on the new Twenty Eleven showreel page?

    Whilst I appreciate that blogging is always one post on top of another and in date order, there are certain older posts that I would prefer were displayed first (or, at a compromise, it would be nice if if the featured posts displayed one at random each time) – but it seems to be the case through testing that I’m stuck with chronological order – is that going to be the case, or am I being dense? :)

    Thanks heaps for any thoughts!

    The blog I need help with is garidavies.me.uk.

    All we know at this point about this new theme and featured posts is found here. > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentyeleven/ I suspect the these posts after being marked as “sticky” featured posts will display just as all blogs display posts ie. in reverse chronological order, as no themes here provide for changing that ordering, but I will leave it to the Themes Staff, who monitor threads in this forum to rely to you.

    What featured postS? The theme can display one featured post only.

    The order of the Featured Posts is indeed reverse chronological order. Updating the published date can change the order.

    @panaghiotisadam Twenty Eleven does indeed support multiple featured posts. :) Adding more than one sticky post will add slider controls to the top right of the featured post area.
