blog item sort order

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Hi! I haven't been able to find an answer to this although I've seen a few other forum posts asking it. 

How would I go about making blog posts display in an order OTHER THAN publication date? I am using the blog structure to showcase work and I would like for it to be presented on the home landing page in alphabetical order. 

My sense is that the way to solve this would be using a code injection, but Id love support on how to structure the code. Thank you!

If you display the blog posts using a Summary Block, you'll be able to write some code to display them alphabetically. To avoid writing the code, there's a paid plugin available called Lazy Summaries that will display the posts in your chosen sort order, and a bunch of other things besides. For example, it will allow you to display more than 30 blog posts and set the number of posts to display horizontally

Here's an example showing the sort order of a blog being changed to A-Z:
