WordPress pages in all kind of crazy order? I know. Here’s some help.
If you know how to do it, you can change this hard-to-find number of the page while editing it and then manually give each page a sequential number so they show up the way you’d like in your admin screen and on your site.
Or you could just use the Simple Page Ordering plugin and drag and drop and be done with it.
Is your Home page somehow on page 2 of your WordPress admin? How’d it get there? Tame your page management with Simple Page Ordering.
If there are pages you edit often, it’s handy (and time saving) if you don’t have to scroll down or go to a deeper page in your admin to edit it.
Manual Page Order
WordPress does some weird stuff when you create page (and then more and more pages). Things aren’t really in the order you’d like them to be. If you have an automated sitemap plugin, for example, it will use the order that the WordPress backend has them in. Which may or may not be the order you’d like them to be in. With the Simple Page Ordering plugin, you’re covered here, too.
What I don’t know is that if you deactivate it, will they revert to their original order? Guess I’ll find out …
