I have a slight issue in that I would like to use
the manual ordering option for articles added to a SEBLOD List &
Search page, but find that when doing so, new articles are added first
in the list, by default (or position 0).
In my case, this is
troublesome because I need at least one article to always appear first -
and other users adding new content can be thrown by this.
little while back, Joomla added an additional option for 'Reverse
Ordering' to the article options (this can be seen under CONTENT >
ARTICLES > OPTIONS > SHARED > ARTICLE ORDER :: ORDERING
REVERSE), which meant that newly added articles would be added last in a
list while still respecting the manually specified order. There is
mention of this in Joomla's issue tracker back in 2016 over here:
doesn't appear to be present in SEBLOD's List & Search type options
('Use Global' and 'Ordering' are both present, but no 'Reverse
Is this something that could be added into SEBLOD at some stage?
Thanks in advance for any consideration, and thanks as always for the terrific software.
Not sure what you mean. You asked for the reverse ordering option because it doens't show in Seblod configuration. I have test and said that you can get this behavior with using the Article Ordering in the order view and there you can select asc/desc.
It seems you have 2 two question in the first post. For getting a specific article always in first position maybe you must use a list module using featured option for example and on top of a list view ?
