New Ways To Re-Order Blog Posts

By default, Gridbox orders blog posts based on the date and time that they were published. To change the order of the posts you need to change the post dates manually.

Today we want to introduce a new way to re-order blog posts - the custom order which allows you to re-order posts by simply dragging and dropping them in the admin panel.

First, you need to re-order posts in the admin panel. For that enable Drag and Drop ordering in the admin panel and sort them as you need.

After that, you need to visit a category layout editor, open category list settings and select "Sort by - Custom".

As you can see on the screen above, posts you can order and by "Popular", the most viewed posts.
