In Joomla 1.5 it was relatively easy to manually sort category blog articles. But like many functions in Joomla 1.7, this function is difficult to find.
To manually sort Joomla Category or Featured articles
- From the Joomla Administrator menu, select Content > Article Manager.
Joomla displays the Article Manager screen.
- Click the Order column.
Once you click the Ordercolumn, the sort arrows and the save icon appear and the sort numbers are editable.IMPORTANT: You cannot sort articles UNTIL you click the Ordering column.
