Re-order Pages Plugin?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I know there are a fair number of folks here who use WordPress. I would like to change the order of the Pages as they are displayed in the Menu Bar along the top of the page. Does anyone know of a good plugin for this purpose?


Thanks for any responses.

Right, what Bruce said. Depending on the version of WordPress you're using, you may also need to make sure the template tag generating your list of pages is set to observe your manual ordering. The default tag is usually:


><?php wp_list_pages(); ?>


But that doesn't always do what you want it to do. If `wp_list_pages()` is the tag you're using, you'll need to make sure you're setting the `sort_column` argument:


><?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order'); ?>


There are other tags that can generate lists of pages and you might be using something different than this, but `wp_list_pages` is probably the most common.

Hi Bruce and joefish,


Thank you for your responses. Bruce - I had tried one plugin but I wasn't happy with it. It was a drag and drop method - I ended up with 2 Gallery pages and lost another page. There were also bars of black colour showing on the plugin page when I went to activate the plugin so that put a red flag up.


I did figure out how to edit the Pages (yes I am talking about Pages and not Posts) and assign a page number so my Menu Bar and the list for the Pages in the Side Bar are showing as I would like.


Thanks for your help. :)
