Do you want to bring your old blog post to the homepage? By default, WordPress does not allow to re-order the blog post. But sometimes you may have to move your old post.
Today, in this article, I will tell you how to reorder posts in WordPress.
So let’s get started…
How to Reorder Posts in WordPress
If your blog is new, you do not need posts reordering. But when your blog grows you may need to change posts order.
But the biggest problem, WordPress does not allow you to do this by default. WordPress displays your blog post in reverse chronological order (from newest to oldest). There is no option to move the post up and down.
Thankfully there are some ways that can help to re-order the WordPress Blog Post.
1. Reorder Post using the plugin

Now, you will see a new option “Re-order” in the Post section. By clicking on it, you can drag and drop any of your specific posts up and down.
2. Reorder Posts by Changing Publish Date
If you want to change your post ordering without using the plugin, then this method is for you. In this method, you do not need to install any type of plugin.
As I said earlier, WordPress shows new posts first. So you can easily change the order of your posts by changing the Publish date.
If you want to display one of your old posts first, simply edit the post you want to reorder. Then click Publish date under the Document panel. A popup of date and time will open. After changing
For example, if your new post is published on 10 March 2019 and you want to show your old post first, then set your old post’s publish date 11 March 2019. Your old posts will appear before your new post.
3. Post Reorder Using Sticky Posts Feature
There are many users who reorder posts to highlight their posts as featured posts. Since WordPress provides a default feature to set sticky posts.
Sticky Post is a feature that appears above all posts on your blog’s homepage.
Just edit your post which you want to use as a sticky post. Then check the Stick to the Front Page option inside the document panel.
Then click the Update button. You can visit your blog to check it.
I use the Post Types Order plugin to reorder my post which is absolutely free and it’s quick and easy.
