Default Is There A WP Plugin That Allows Oldest Post To Show First?

I want to set up one of my blogs so that the oldest post shows at
the top of the page and subsequent posts are displayed in order.


Does anyone know of a plugin or hack that would let me make that
happen?

Thanks

John

Would the WP-Sticky plugin do the job for you?

Reverse post order

In your index.php file, look for this bit of code:

Code:
<?php if(have_posts()) : ?><?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
Right before that line, add this code:

Code:
<?php query_posts($query_string . “&order=ASC”) ?>

This plugin will do the trick for you (and more):

You can also find a great list of other ways to do this here:

Last time I checked, this plugin just allows you to add 'stickies' that are displayed above all other posts, kind of like how the stickies work here at WF.

editing the core is not a good idea... unless you want to have to remember the code and re-edit the index.php file everytime you upgrade to the latest WP version.

Plugins are the way to go (as long as one is available for the hack you are trying to accomplish.)

index.php is not a core file it is a theme file

Here's a one that works

Custom Query String Reloaded for Wordpress 2.3 with tag support @ MoshuBlog

You can specify individual categories, number of posts to show and re-arrange post date order.

**EDIT**
**tested on v2.6.4 and working**

Kind Regards

My bad James, when you said index.php and didn't specify wp-content/themes/YourTheme/index.php I assumed you were talking about the core index.php file.

Folks, I'm looking at a lot of these plugins and the docs say only good up
until 2.5.1 so if you're on the latest release (2.6.5) these may not work.

So John, make sure you check the compatibility of the plugin to your
Wordpress version you're using.

You are right Jared, I should have made that clear.

If you are still wondering about this, (I do see the post is old), the AStickyPostOrderER works very well up to 2.9.1.

This was exactly what I was looking for. I was about to try some coding but I would much rather use a plugin.
