Pinning important articles at the top of category

5 years 5 months ago #125384 by savethefrogs
Hi,
If i have thirty articles in a category, how can I pin important ones to the top, while making the others be chronological, newest at the top?
Thanks!
Kerry

P.S. I figure I should make this forum more colorful so i'll include frog photos...

Hi Kerry,
I love these frog pictures! :)

It sounds like you want to make sticky the important articles, so that's the first the users see.

In Joomla, there are variety of ways to order articles by id, order from the article manager, by published date, etc.

Go to Menus > main menu > the menu item for this page
In Blog layout > Article and Category Order check the ordering settings, and based on that define which articles to display first.

Kind regards,
Valentín

Thanks Valentin.
I looked in the menu's Category Blog Layout area but can't see where I could specify a few articles to go to the top while all those below would appear chronologically.

In the ordering settings you define which type of order to use.
Based on that organize your articles.

So, for example, if you have selected "most recent first", your articles will be displayed based on the publication date.
