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

Blogs are essentially a reverse chronological order publishing tool and you cannot change this order on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. Readers arrive to read our most recent posts. In the case of my blog that means they don’t have to slog through over 800 posts to locate the most recent one. 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 April 21, 2013 at 5:21 pm #1237451 timethiefMember If you wish you can use a theme that has a featured post slider > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/ Author Posts The topic ‘Random Posts’ is closed to new replies.
