I've installed Post Pins and set it to show a single category however I cannot control the sort order that posts appear. I modified the publish dates to try to control the sort order, but that didn't change anything. I also used the Post Re-order plug-in, without any impact.

How are posts ordered?

Here's my page:

They should be by date order, descending. But I'm curious... Do you have a cache plugin activated? If so, did you clear the cache after making changes? If not, did you clear the browser cache before trying to view the order?

Thanks for the reply. Clearing the caches did not change my view, but I think I figured out my issue. I discovered that the order is defined by the vertical axis, and I was assuming posts would sort by row (which is my preference).

So there is no problem with the sort order...it's just not what I was looking for.

Doesn't Post Pins have a sort order in the PageLines Meta Settings > Post Pins on the page? If you did not set that, try Desc.

Post Pins offers width settings, but nothing for sort order or height.

Hi,

I just tested it and yes, the order is date descending. The bottom-most post is the earliest, with the top left-most being the most recent. I'm not sure which date (there are several in the database) that Post Pins uses to determine the order. It could well be a combination of date and Post ID.

At least you know that the order isn't random.
