    Currently the ways to control sorting of posts are (from Docs):

    <b>Posts Order By</b> – Set how the posts on the frontpage are ordered; choose from <b>Post Creation Date</b>, <b>Post Title</b>, <b>Post Modification Date</b>, or <b>Post ID</b>.

    Would it be possble to add a field called Post Custom Order to each entry and allow that to be a Post Order By sort option?

    Post Custom Order could work like the Post Title field – it is entered separately on posts, with an option to hide/show it on each post. That would allow a site to be organized around a sorting scheme managed through the Post Custom Order field, but not displayed to viewers. It would help Publii be used for docment collections or other kinds of uses where the creation date or title or assigned post ID aren’t the desired order for the viewer.

    Of course Title can currently be used to accomplish this and the title hidden, but then posts don’t have a Title field…

    Thanks for considering this request.

    Hi,

    It sounds like a good idea – I will see what we can do to implement such feature in one of the next releases 🙂
