In my opinion, WordPress is by far the best blogging platform out there.
Why? Because no other platform even comes close in terms of power, flexibility and ease of use.
There are tons of intuitive ways to do virtually anything in WordPress, but one useful task that isn’t all that intuitive is changing the order of one or more of your existing blog posts.
By default, posts are displayed in reverse chronological order (i.e. the newest post at the top of the first page), but you can easily force a specific post to be displayed anywhere in the list.
All you have to do is change a post’s publication date in order to make it show up between any specific pair of posts.
For example, suppose you have a post that was written a couple of months ago but you think it would fit perfectly between two other adjacent posts. Simply look at the publication dates of those two posts and change the date on the post you wish to “move” to any date/time that falls between the two.
You can also force an older post to be displayed as the first post on the blog’s home page. Simply change the date/time to make it more recent than the last post you published.
Pretty simple, huh? I love WordPress!!
