Order articles

The articles in a category can be sorted alphabetically or an explicit order with numeration.

The navigation bar Order options are:
#OptionDescription
1AlphabeticArticles are displayed sorted by Headline in ascending order
2ReverseArticles are displayed sorted by Headline in descending order
3NumericArticles are displayed in the explicit order specified on this page. Articles have their headlines prefixed with their position in their article page and the category's article list

Numeric ordering is useful if there is a natural sequencing of the topics that would be better served by specifying their order. Reverse is only for very special cases, such as Smallsite Design's listing of its versions with fixed-length date formatting of yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss, latest first.

If there are more than three articles, the possible Move by options shown are 1, 3 and 10, which is the number of lines by which the clicked article is next moved. After each move, the setting reverts to 1.

The columns for the list of articles are:
#ColumnDescription
1HeadlineArticle headline
2IDArticle identifier
3ShowPublic visibility of the article
4Moves the article up according to the Move by setting. If the move would go beyond the top, it continues from the bottom. Only shown for the Numericʘ?ʘOrder option
5Moves the article down according to the Move by setting. If the move would go beyond the bottom, it continues from the top. Only shown for the Numericʘ?ʘOrder option
