Another AriesGDIM WordPress Tutorial

Recently a client of mine asked that the pages on her WordPress Website be in a specific order in the site menu.  Sometimes this function is already built into the Theme you have chosen but when it isn’t… by default, WordPress will set your pages in alphabetical order and will do the same for your default menu.  Alphabetical order just isn’t enough for your sites navigation menu when you need your pages in a specific order.  When you do, you will need to incorporate a plugin to help you get things straight.

I decided to try Drew Gourley’s  “Order Up” plugin “Custom Page Order” and it works great.  You can download the plugin directly from this site, upload the zipped file to your site via the WordPress dashboard and activate it.

Once activated you can view the plugin right in the Dashboard menu.  Once there you can automatically click on each page and drag drop each page putting them in the order you need.

Changing the Navigational Page / Menu Order from the Dashboard

After you have set the pages in the order you need to check the “Enable Automatic Sorting or Queries” at the bottom and then “save” your changes.

All done… I hope this helps you… I know it has helped me when customizing the menu order on my client’s websites.

Drew Gourley also has a “Custom Post Order” plugin as well… just incase you need it.  By the way these plugins are FREE…

If you have any questions about basic WordPress tips… please email me and I will try to help you out.
