How do I change the Wordpress top menu order?

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by datatrond, Oct 14, 2009.

    I am the happy owner of the blog Money Online which is running on WordPress. I want to change the order of the menu items in top to show like this:

    | Search Engine Marketing | Social Media Marketing | Home Business | Web Design | Geek Stuff |

    I have tried a lot of plugins but this only seems to work for the widgets and not for the menu in top.

    Do I need to go into the code to change this or is there any easier way to do this?

    Anyone with experience with this?

    When you create/edit a page you can set the page order under Attributes/Order (bottom right column). But you'll need to number them all.

    I see you are using categories..
    <?php
    wp_list_categories('orderby=id&include=3,5,9,16'); ?> order by id , but this works only if they were created in the order you specify you want to display them in the top menu or
    Category Order WP plugin

    I had the same issue and unfortunately, Wordpress arranges the page titles alphabetically unless you set up pages in attributes with numbers. Hopefully this will be improved in later versions of Wordpress.

    Still haven't succeeded this mission yet. Not aboe to use any plugins?
    Ordering the menus should be a basic thing that Wordpress absolutely should handle with ease!? :confused:
