Article order in Categories

Article order in Categories was created by savethefrogs
Hi,
This should be simple but I can't figure out why my categories lost their Most Recent Article First setting.
Example: www.savethefrogs2.com/countries/ghana/

When I go to Articles: Options
Please help. Thanks!

Hi Kerry,

I was trying to access the backend to see the current settings, however it seems my IP was blacklisted.
Would you mind to email us a valid access to support@ostraining.com - include the url of this forum topic in the message, then reply here.

I can reply to your email my IP, so you can allow me access.

Hi Kerry,

It's because you have those articles in subcategories of Ghana and it's sorting by category order first, then article date.

Go to:
1) your Ghana menu item
2) Blog layout
3) Category Order -> No order

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

By the way, it looks like the Global order settings are gone in Article Manager in Joomla 3.5. It would be worth reporting that as a bug to Joomla:
issues.joomla.org/

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,
This did fix the order of articles appearing when I click the Ghana menu link, but sitewide I still have the problem on other menu links. I can report it to issues.joomla.org/ but can you tell me where precisely the option should be so that I can tell them it is not there (and where it should be).
Thanks, Kerry

Hi Valentin,
I meant that I do not know what to report precisely. What precisely is missing from the new Joomla backend? Where should it be and what is the missing feature called?
Thanks, Kerry

Earlier in this thread, Nick said "By the way, it looks like the Global order settings are gone in Article Manager in Joomla 3.5."

My problem is that when I click menu links that lead to categories with subcategories, the articles are not showing up chronologically, they are showing up I think with the alphabetical category's articles taking priority over the chronology.

I cannot find any global setting to force the articles to appear chronologically, irrespective of what subcategory they come from.

Hi Kerry,

They should be in the following place, in my opinion:
1) Content
2) Articles
3) Options
4) Blog/Featured Layout

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks Nick. I submitted it.
For now I manually set every menu link to have Category order set to None
Thanks for helping.
