View Full Version : Sorting order for archive page
02-01-2008, 05:44 PM
How do I go about changing the sorting order on the archive page of my photo blog - link here (http://www.focus-bracket.com/index.php?x=browse&pagenum=1) - right now it displays the images in chronological order (with the option to sort according to categories, etc) - but I would really like to sort them in reverse chronological order so I get the newest first.
I suspect this needs some sort of change in the php code (of which I know next to nothing) since I haven't been able to locate any such option in the admin interface.
Any help would be appreciated :)

which version do you use?
Usually the photos in the archive are shown in the same order as in the blog page - newest entry first

I actually kind of wish they were in reverse order on the archive/browse pages - so then page 1 would always be page 1 and as you added new photos you added new pages but the previous pages wouldn't change. I had hacked my index file at one time but I stopped doing that a couple versions ago so I wouldn't have upgrade problems.

kevin, you could write an addon to do this :P

Sorry about the lack of response - have been out of town :)
Anyways, I am using version 1.7 - having just dug around a bit I've discovered that it's probably something in the theme I am using that's causing this, as the archive IS indeed shown in reverse chronological order when using the the simple theme.
It would seem that the tag <THUMBNAILS_WHOLE_PAGED> is the cause of this - I do have the addon installed but it would appear this is showing the thumbnails in the actual chronological order - any way to go around this?

I'd guess so too. It looks like <THUMBNAILS_WHOLE_PAGED> sorts the thumbnails in "id" order, not in "datetime".

It's the same for me. It happens since i use Pixelpost 1.7...
If someone know how to change it, it would be very appreciated ! (i don't know anything in PHP :()
